Hi there, for my girlfriend I want to buy a new iMac that DOES comply with ‘heavy’ 3D drawings made in Sketchup Pro 2019.
Currently Sketchup gets stuck while working in a drawing, as soon as an:
- command is given a 3D model is imported from the Warehouse (for example a bank)
- an order is given to copy such a bank 3D model and paste it into another drawing save of drawings
She works with many textures, to display as realistic an image as possible in 3D for her interior clients.
Currently she uses a:
Macbook Pro from late 2016
Retina screen 15 inch
2.6Ghz Intel quoad core i7
16 GB Ram
Radeon Pro 450 with 2 GB GDDR5
Since last week we have purchased an external GPU, the Sonnet Puck with Radeon RX 560. Unfortunately this did not help with the above problems.
So it seems to me to be entirely down to the processor. With monitoring of processor usage during Sketch Up Pro … the CPU usage by Sketch Up Pro shoots to 100%.
Therefore my question, which processor is recommended if we look at heavy Sketchup Pro use? So we buy the right iMac.
Thanks in advance!
