my pc has a 1 GB of ram, and runs slow sometimes with revit. will i see a dramatic impruvment by changing the ram to be 2.5 GB of ram? does it worth the money/effort? Thanks

it's all about the total machine. anything will help but you want to make sure that you have a computer that is worth investing in. when rendering it's mostly all about the proccesor. the the answer to your though question is yes, you should see a nice improvement.

I just got a new machine when we upgraded to Revit, P4 2.8 ghz, 256mb video card and 1 gig ram. The revit file I started working with was nearly 10 megs and I was waiting for alot of things. Upgraded to 3 gig total ram and dont wait for much except saving across the network... BUT I haven't done any rendering...

We found that a dual processor machine really helps. It appears that Revit is a processor driven program, plus when it comes to rendering the dual processor machines rock, we also have 2.0gb of Ram to back up the dual processors.

Each processor after the first will make AccuRender perform about 80% faster HTH

recently at my school we just got new computers. they have 3 gigs of ram, i think and have a 3.8 MHZ processer. it does still seem kinda slow when rendering.

The ram issue isn’t really that big of one, I have ran Revit with only a gig and it works just fine. The CPU is usually what goes to the max. Someone said that their school had 3 gigs of ram and it seemed slow, that may be because of the fact that it is 3 so you are probably running 1 gig across 3 Dimms which will slow your computer down, if you had 3 gig across 4 Dimm it would run better. Should always run Ram over 1,2, or all 4 Dimms you will get a better result. As for the Multiple Core CPUs the reason for this is that your tasks running in the back will go to one part of your CPU and Revit will basically have a CPU to its self. Since Revit doesn’t have dual core capability I would limit your multiple cores to only 2 rather than upgrading to the new Quad Core ADM, you probably wont see a dramatic improvement for the cost of the Quad. Still would be nice to see either a multi core capable Revit or a 64 bit capable Revit. I bought a 64 bit so I’m hoping the push goes for that one, but I’m betting a dual core capable Revit will be released first. If I could spend $100 to upgrade Ram or CPU I would rather spend it on CPU pending on the speed difference, but CPU is what I have seen that Revit uses a lot of espicially during start up and opening projects.
