BricsCAD system requirements and recommendations.

Supported Operating SystemsNotes
  • Microsoft Windows 11 (x64)
  • Microsoft Windows 10 (x64)
  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and higher Ubuntu versions
    are still supported by Canonical
  • openSUSE builds, later than April 2020
  • Fedora builds, later than April 2020
  • macOS 10.15
Although other operating systems are well supported if you are purchasing a new system with the sole purpose of CAD we would recommend a Microsoft Windows based system which will give you better support and customisation options due to the wide variety of extensions available.
Minimum CPU:
Intel® Core™ i5 AMD Ryzen™ 5
Recommended CPU:
Intel® Core™ i7 Intel® Core™
i9 AMD Ryzen™ 7 AMD Ryzen™ 9
The CPU with the highest single-thread performance rating will always excel with BricsCAD.

Additional CPU cores will bring in higher performance, as more and more functions gets multithreaded computation in BricsCAD.
Minimum System Memory:
8 GB
Recommended System Memory:
16 GB
For maximum performance, determine the memory configuration of your PC and ensure that each memory channel on the motherboard is populated with at least one memory module.
Minimum Disk Space:
3 GB for BricsCAD Ultimate, installed
Recommended Disk Space:
(As needed)
We strongly recommend using SSD (Sata 3 / PCI-E NVME) as system drives, for both BricsCAD and Windows.

Solid-state disks can be up to 10x faster reading and 20x faster writing data than a mid-range hard disk drive.
Minimum Display System:
Full HD (1920 x 1080) True Color display and a graphics card with 4 GB VRAM
Recommended Display System:
Multiple UHD (3840 x 2160) or 4k True Color displays, with a PCIe® graphics card w/GPUs and 8 GB VRAM
On Microsoft Windows systems, most graphics cards & GPUs from NVIDIA, AMD and Intel® are supported.

We suggest that you install the latest drivers available for your display hardware, as recommended by the manufacturer.
