    However, considering the thread, it is worth reminding everyone that the benchmark really doesn't provide an appropriate way to evaluate video cards. It proves the value of having hardware acceleration on, and shows that the new Warp based stuff is faster that HA off used to be, and slower than a decent graphics card. It still (and maybe forever) will not provide a good evaluation of two graphics cards under consideration.

    Gordon,

    Would you expect the benchmark to work with Revit 'onebox' as well?

    Yeah, it works perfectly on OneBox already. Only RST is having issues, which honestly makes very little sense to me since they are all "the same" under the hood now. My hope is that I can find an edit to the journal that not only works for RST, but doesn't break anything else. or that the Update1 that just dropped fixes everything without edits. Stay tuned!

    How about the new graphic processor integrated in the cpu? does revit use this new feature simultaneous with a graphic card?
    this next week I'm assembling a desktop mainly to work with revit 2013 and I don't know wich processor to choose: i7-3770k or i7-3882 (the price is almost the same)
    there is also a big difference between them: the maximum memory bandwidth witch is almost the double in the 3882!

    everybody is saying that the 3770k is better than 3882 but... is it really better for revit performance???

    any advice?

    thanks

    Welcome to RFO!

    Check out the sticky thread on Video Cards. Short answer is that the integrated GPU isn't of any help in Revit.

    I've never heard of a 3882. Do you mean the 3820? The 3820 is an excellent CPU as well... either one would work great, but the 3770 is still probably a little faster for most stuff... but it's probably a pretty close call.

    The processors on their own are close to the same price. However, the 3820 requires an LGA 2011 motherboard which typically sell for about $150 more than the LGA 1155.

    Hi, I use Revit to do architectural work, not for a company, but for small contract jobs for an architect. I currently have a laptop (Sony w/ Core 2 Duo & Win 7 64-bit) that is pretty good and runs Revit decently, but is kind of slow for renderings. I'm looking to get a desktop, and have been comparing various Intel and AMD systems, but can't seem to decide which is best for me.

    iru69, I saw you said an AMD will run Revit fine, but there's really no AMD processors that you'd suggest, but it seems for my case an 8-core AMD would be better than a 4-core Intel. My Revit files are usually 10-15Mb, smaller projects like houses and such, so it seems like for about the same price I could get an 8-core AMD machine that will rip thru renderings quicker than a 4-core Intel and still run Revit fine. Doesn't this seem like a better setup if I'm not working with large complicated files?
