Spectre 360 15
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Happy New Year - let’s break free of 2020! Hoping to purchase a Spectre 360 in the first quarter of 2021. However, will the Spectre optimally run the latest version of AutoCad? I’ve researched the base requirements for running AC but am seeking assurance from the community after an unsuccessful Envy purchase. Thank you to any and all input and guidance. 

 

Best Regards,

 

Christopher

Good question... you do not mention what are you doing with AutoCAD... is it mostly viewing or designing? if viewing then the Spectre with a discrete graphics card will do fine... if you are designing, then what components of AutoCAD will you be using... There are many modules in AutoCAD and some require high-end professional graphics to have decent performance... I may encourage you to look at the Zbook family, perhaps the Power G7 that uses the Intel H processors (AutoCAD is 'mostly' single-threaded and the higher clock cycle of the 35W H processors help much, and the Nvidia professional graphics w/4GB Ram will also help
