Carlson 2013-2015* with IntelliCAD 7.2 and later

*Starting with 2013 build 130120

Intel® Pentium® 4 or comparable (minimum), Intel i7 or at least Intel i5 or comparable (recommended). Due to the variety of processors on the market, one can use cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php to do comparative analysis. While the overall processor score matters, the single thread performance is of the most interest.

  • 32-bit Windows 7-8.1: 1 gigabyte (GB) of RAM minimum for, 4 GB recommended.
  • 64-bit Windows 7-8.1: 2 GB of RAM minimum for, 8+ GB recommended.
  • Windows Vista: 1 GB of RAM minimum, 4 GB recommended.
  • Windows XP: 512 megabytes (MB) of RAM minimum, 2 GB recommended.

Graphics card compatible with OpenGL Version 1.4 or higher:

  • Recommended are desktop graphics level discrete (not integrated cards like Intel HD) graphics cards.
  • Preferably Nvidia Geforce due to their more consistent driver support.
  • Discrete ATI/AMD cards will be adequate, but ATI’s driver support has been spotty and user is frequently deferred to the computer manufacturer for support.
  • Professional Nvidia Quadro cards are not currently recommended due to driver issues.
  • Powerful gaming cards are not required and probably would not provide as much benefit as investment in more memory or better CPU

Carlson 2012 and earlier with IntelliCAD 7.1 and 6.x based products

  • Windows® XP, Windows® Vista, Windows® 7
  • Intel Pentium® or more powerful processor
  • 64-bit machines are supported, but application itself is 32-bit
  • 1 GB RAM (minimum), 4 GB recommended (for complex drawings)
  • 400 MB of free hard disk space (1.2 GB Total, see Note above)
