Revit MEP users typically need more power than Architects and Structural Engineers.
Because in addition to their own stuff they need to link the architects model for plan drawings and space hosting.
Remember even though you have a large project that doesnt mean you need to make one large and complex Revit file.
- Link to certified graphic cards incl drivers:
Windows 10 is not officially support yet.
But we do see some customers using W10 without problems.
Revit 2015 and Revit 2014 is certified for Windows 8.1.
Revit 2013 is not W8.1 certified.
This is the Cad-Q recommended system setup for optimal performance based on customer feedback and support experience.
