Performance in SketchUp software releases

Any thoughts on the possibility of Trimble’s next release leveraging multi-core processors or other performance improvements?

Every SketchUp release to this date has had some kinds of performance improvements.

As to multithreading, it has been discussed in this forum ad nauseam. Truly multithreaded 3D modelling applications just do not exist. They have been on the to-do list since the Pentium processor was released in the 1990s but have not materialized. They might be impossible to program in a way that would improve performance. Renderers are different beasts and multithreaded versions have existed for a very long time.



Yeah, multi-threading…rather like Brexit. Superficially it can sound like a good idea…until you get down to the actual practicalities. :wink:


Its not through lack of trying
