Which PC or Mac should I purchase to use with Rhino?

Help with choosing a Graphics Card and Hardware requirements.

Please note that these requirements are different from those listed by McNeel. Our suggestions represent practical recommendations for professional users and are based on new Apple hardware and Windows PC specifications available at the time of writing.

Below is a brief summary of recommended minimum specifications, there is much more detail on the pages we have linked to below:

Rhino for Windows - Hardware and Operating Systems, Guidance and Requirements
Rhino for Mac - Hardware and Operating Systems, Guidance and Requirements

So, for detailed guidance follow the links above, but for instant info you can read on.


 Our suggested mid-level practical system requirements for a new desktop machine for Rhino 7 for Windows are as follows:

Intel Core i7 10700K or AMD equivalent CPU
NVIDIA Quadro P2200 GPU
16 GB RAM
250 GB SSD
2TB HD
Windows 10 Professional


 

Our suggested practical system requirements for a new desktop machine for Rhino 7 for Mac are as follows:

MacBook Pro 16” - Currently there are two models, either are fine
iMac 21.5” or 27” Models - Except entry level Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 (look for models with the dedicated AMD Graphics Cards).*
iMac Pro - All models are fine
Mac Pro - All models are fine
*Some models come with 8GB RAM as standard, this is low for any CAD application, look at upgrading that to 16GB or more.
