Hello...I am new here.....but I have a question...or two. What ...if any AMD processors will run AutoDesk products such as Civil 3D, Revit and Max 3D. All I see being spec'd these days are i5's and i7's or Xeons......are there vaild reasons for this...or is it just Intel seeding the market with their hardware. No so called "high end" workstations on paper look to be that much better than a comperable AMD based system....yet...I just see no one talking about building or buying them. I currently have 15+ systems that were running Autocad 2009/2010 just fine and are ALL AMD based machines...but Civil 3D and Revit are making these system drag their collective butts. These systems are all 3ghz (Dual and Tri cores) and above and all of them have 8gb of ram (DDR2 and DDR3) with a mix of good and not so good video cards. The following being typical setups.....

Class - AMD 64 AM2 7750BE Dual Core, 3.0Ghz (OC)
Operating System - Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
System Ram - 8GB DDR2 PC6400 (4 - 2Gb)
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H mATX
Video Card - Power Color 4670HD 512mb PCI-E
Sound Card - Onboard Realtek HD
Hard Drive - 160 Gig Seagate SATA2
CD-Rom Drive - Samsung DVD/RW
Network Card - Onboard Broadcomm 10/100/1000

Class - AMD AM2 445 3.1Ghz Triple Core
Operating System - Windows 7 Pro
System Ram - 8Gb DDR3 PC10666 (2 - 4Gb)
Motherboard - Gigabyte MA-880GMA-USB3 mATX
Video Card - ATI FireGL V4800 1Gb PCI-E
Sound Card - Onboard Realtek HD
Hard Drive - 250 Gig WD SATA2
CD-Rom Drive - Samsung DVD/RW
Network Card - Onboard 10/100/1000

Class - AMD AM2 980 Quad Core, 3.7Ghz
Operating System - Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
System Ram - 8GB DDR2 PC6400 (4 - 2Gb)
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H mATX
Video Card - ATI FireGL V4800 1Gb PCI-E

I built an AMD tower with these specifications ">http://cife.stanford.e...ki/.....ings:tower:


Class - AMD 10h AM3 Phenom II X4 975BE Quad Core, 4.0Ghz (OC)
Operating System - Server 2008R2 64 bit
System Ram - 16GB DDR3 PC3 16000 (4x4)
Motherboard - ASUS AM3 M4A87TD (non-EVO)/USB3 DDR3
Video Card - Quadro FX 5600 1.5GB
Sound Card - NA
Hard Drive - OCZ 1x REVO DRIVE 240GB PCI-E
CD-Rom Drive - NA
Network Card - NA

With a test corridor model that is nonstandard; it is in inch model space unit and has a corridor for each location, so 100 corridors and 60MB total - the machine is slow. From my experience, the Revo Drive, 2000Mhz memory, and lowering to CAS7 were the biggest gains. But, I do not have an answer to your question, though I'd also like to know the answer.
