I am needing to upgrade my iMac computer which can’t seem to handle some of the detailed work I am doing in Sketchup. I know that PCs have been known to be better for rendering, but I would rather not switch.
Can someone tell me if an I Mac Pro with this configuration will be able handle rendering large file models especially when inserting into Layout?
- 3.2GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.2GHz
- 64GB 2666MHz DDR4 ECC memory
- Radeon Pro Vega 64 with 16GB of HBM2 memory
- 4TB SSD storage
Also, this is my current configuration, and it’s unbearably slow when moving large files from Sketchup to layout, I have some Sketchup scenes that are taking more than an hour to insert into Layout. The current model that I’m working on is about 281 megabytes total size, and I am using Sketchup Pro 2019 for architectural design.
iMac (27-inch, Late 2013)
3.5 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4 GB
3.12 TB Fusion Drive Storage
Thank you for your input.
