Vertex BD Hardware Recommendations
64-bit Microsoft Windows 8.1 / Windows 10 / Windows 11
3.0 GHz or faster
16 to 32 GB RAM
5 GB application + 200 MB to 3 GB per project
Nvidia Quadro 1000, 2000, or similar

We highly recommend solid state drives.
Prioritize processor speed over number of cores.
Standard single family house projects are typically 100 to 200 MB per project. House option models and larger projects, such as apartment buildings and hotels, can be 1 to 3 GB per project.
*Integrated graphics drivers are not supported. A dedicated display card is required. When both integrated graphics and a dedicated display card are present, be sure that Vertex BD utilizes the dedicated card.
*Vertex BD 2022 will not run on Windows 7.
Vertex BD requires a network connection to authenticate the license at start up.
Sorry, we do not have a version for Apple macOS.
