Although not as demanding as 3D based tools, 2D architectural design with AutoCAD can still be accelerated with the right hardware. The ability to interact and manipulate large datasets can be improved with higher CPU clock speeds, fast storage and adequate memory.

3D modelling in AutoCAD is a frequency bound application meaning that it predominately only uses one core. You may be paying for cores you don’t need. If your AutoCAD workstation is not optimized for single-threaded performance, then you may be missing out on peak performance that will enhance your workflow. A workstation with less cores and a higher frequency is ideal for 3D modelling in AutoCAD.
