Revit software is specifically built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), empowering design and construction professionals to bring ideas from concept to construction with a coordinated and consistent model-based approach. Autodesk Revit is a single application that includes features for architectural design, MEP and structural engineering, and construction.
The mental ray rendering engine for Revit is bandwidth dependent and utilizes multiple processor cores simultaneously, so workstation with multiple processors, more cores with faster clock speeds will provide accelerated rendering performance.
Workstations for Autodesk Revit Autodesk Revit software products will use multiple cores for many tasks, using up to 16 cores for near-photorealistic rendering operations. We have determined 16GB to 32GB to be a reasonable amount of RAM but more complex projects might take advantage of 64GB. There is also absolutely no doubt that Quadro graphic cards provide the best performance for all type of CAD related applications. Keep in mind Autodesk has certified Nvidia Quadro drivers to work in harmony with their applications.
