Vertex BD Hardware Recommendations


Operating System  64-bit Microsoft Windows 8.1 / Windows 10 / Windows 11
Processor  3.0 GHz or faster
Memory  16 to 32 GB RAM
Disk Space

 5 GB application + 200 MB to 3 GB per project

Additional Notes:

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.
