Latest review from a very happy customer – “Hi Brett, this computer is actually going really brilliantly, the 3D performance, animations and rendering is very fast, smooth and precise. Inventor, AutoCAD, 3DS Max and Photoshop all run at the same time over 2 x 32” monitors without any issues, the over priced Dell computer we had built only a year ago couldn’t even do that, and to upgrade it would have cost us $3000 just for a subpar CPU. I will be recommending all our CAD computers get supplied by you over the coming years.” ( i9 CPU, P4000, 32GB RAM) (July 2019) (Rob from Thornton, NSW)

With Dual Channel DDR4 RAM, the data path is doubled by using two sticks of DDR4 memory. By giving the CPU/north bridge another data path to the memory, bandwidth is effectively doubled. In simple terms, think of Dual Channel DDR as widening the bridge by adding two more lanes. This effectively allows more data to travel faster; much like traffic moving faster when there’re more lanes to drive in.

We use A-Grade RAM in all our CAD workstation computers such as G.SKILL, Crucial, Corsair and Kingston.

 Dear Brett,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I just got back from New Zealand and saw your email. Yes, we did receive the CAD computer about 3 weeks ago and the CAD designer says ” I LOVE IT – BEST CAD PC EVER” – his words mate. We need to replace the other 4 CAD PCs as well. Could you please arrange this for me before the end of this financial year. Email me the invoice and I will arrange payment. Thanks for following up on this and the great CAD computer. S. Timms. Rockdale. NSW. 

 Dear Supertech,

Great work on the CAD PC. We bought 2 from you in March and the design team love it. Makes life so much easier. Fast and stable – just what we needed. Will highly recommend you to my friends. You are most welcome to use me as a reference for your potential customers who want to buy CAD computers. A. Roberts. Mt. Isa

More Information on buying a CAD PC in Brisbane

Tailor Your Choice of CPU for CAD

The dominant thrust in CPU architecture has shifted away from accelerating single-threaded processors and toward developing parallel processing, with the latest professional CPUs moving from dual-core to quad-core and now hex-core processors. Multicore CPU approaches have proved a great avenue to gain theoretical speed-ups, but when it comes to modelling with most mechanical CAD packages, including AutoCAD, Inventor, SolidWorks, Revit and Solid Edge, you won’t benefit much from multiple cores, as those applications are not yet optimized for multicore processing. On the other hand, engineering simulation and rendering — whether performed discretely or via a renderer embedded in one of the aforementioned design packages — do tend to utilize multiple processing cores. If that’s the case for your primary rendering engine and if you spend significant time on these tasks, you’ll want to consider shifting more of your budget toward a good graphics card that can handle the workload.

Tap GPU Power for Speedups Across the 3D Modelling Workflow

Perhaps more importantly in today’s 3D environment, you’ll want to pay closer attention to the GPU you’re choosing to power your MCAD, rendering, and simulation applications. Today’s GPUs bear little resemblance to the graphics controllers of old. Forget old-school wireframes and primitive solid models with smooth-shaded sides. Professional graphics cards offer the ability to realistically display parts and models and keep your viewports fluid even when working with complex projects. But graphics are only the beginning of what these new GPUs can tackle. These engines also offer a whole lot more processing horsepower — work that has always tended to bog down CAD pros.

First and foremost, with the right GPU in place, you’ll notice remarkable performance in terms of how your 3D software responds to panning, rotating, zooming, generating animations, and all those other tasks that push the limits of a lesser processor. Such a fundamental improvement in how you interact with your software can bring about dramatic gains in productivity and overall user satisfaction.

The latest GPUs are also rendering raster-based images in real-time that rival anything off-line Hollywood render farms could manage just a few years ago. But more than that, GPUs have broken through all the preconceived limits we’d previously set for them, taking on processing that traditionally was left to the CPU. That means CAD professionals can now leverage their investment in graphics hardware to achieve far more than anything yesterday’s graphics cards could have ever hoped to achieve.

Accordingly, you’re going to want to spend at least as much time considering your choice of GPU, and quite possibly a bigger portion of your budget as well. Which GPU should today’s CAD pros choose? Well, most buyers will want to match the performance and capabilities of the GPU with the rest of the system — that is, an entry-caliber card for an entry-caliber workstation. Good balance, where each component hits a performance level that is supported by the rest of the system, is the best way to maximize ROI for your workstation purchase.

GPU Computing

Your questions about selecting a GPU should no longer be limited solely to which GPU, but also how many, thanks to GPU computing. Virtually every corner of the MCAD world utilizes the same basic workflow: design, revise, analyse, then iterate. Two common components in this iterative workflow, finite-element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), employ algorithms that rely on heaps of floating-point arithmetic and can be run in parallel to gain significant increase in throughput. It’s a similar story for raytraced rendering, a technique that is so fundamentally different from conventional raster-based rendering that it more naturally falls under the category of GPU computing than graphics. Images rendered by a raytracer immediately catch the eye, making it one of the most sought-after visual tools for product styling. With NVIDIA’s GPU compute–enabled iray, a rendering engine found in popular software such as Autodesk 3ds Max, Bunkspeed Shot, and CATIA v6, designers are seeing visualization times shrink from hours to minutes. With that speed, designers can leverage raytracing earlier and more frequently in the development process, fine-tuning designs based on photorealistic feedback.
