Workstation Recommendations
Excitech recommendations for running the Autodesk 2014 software portfolio
As an Autodesk Platinum Partner, a Dell Preferred Partner and a HP Preferred Partner, Excitech is uniquely positioned
to advise customers on the ideal workstation specifications to run their Autodesk applications. We understand that
as CAD applications become more sophisticated they place greater demands on computer hardware. Through
working closely with software and hardware suppliers, we understand the optimum system specifications for users of
all levels.
In order to share this knowledge we have compiled recommended system specifications for the latest Autodesk 2014
portfolio. These recommendations are consciously different from published minimum specifications.
For Modest, Average and Demanding user requirements, we recommend system specifications for each Autodesk
product, specifications which will unlock the power of your CAD software. These system recommendations are based
on "current" hardware and operating systems. In many cases running a similar specification on previous technology
will also give a good experience, call for advice on 0845 370 1500 to discuss your requirements.
Excitech is an expert in supplying IT Solutions to companies who use CAD. So, why not speak to your Account
Manager or one of our IT Specialists today to identify the speed, efficiency, and productivity gains you could
experience by running CAD on recommended hardware.
