CPU Type
1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

64-bit System Requirements:
Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 8* 64-bit, Windows 7 (64-bit), Vista (64-bit) - 8 GB RAM.

Recommended:
Your experience with TurboCAD Pro Platinum will be greatly enhanced with a newer generation, higher speed CPU, 8+ GB RAM.

The optional GPU-accelerated Redsdk render modes require a supported graphic processing unit (either a chip on the board, or on a video card). The latest video drivers are typically required. Newer boards with more power and VRAM generally provide greater performance.
