    • This is from the website but the short answer is you’re looking for a fast gaming PC.

      Q. What type of computer does SoftPlan require?
      Ans. SoftPlan can be run on any current generation PC which is 100% IBM® compatible and uses the Windows® Vista, Windows 7 Windows 8 or Windows 10 operating systems along with an Intel® or equivalent processor. SoftPlan is not compatible with the Apple® Mac OS®, including when used on a computer with an Intel processor. In addition, configurations such as terminal or server operating systems as well as the Linux and Sun® Solaris™ operating systems are not supported. It may also be possible to run SoftPlan on those earlier versions of the Windows operating system which are still supported by Microsoft®. This chart is the MINIMUM recommended computer, SoftPlan will run on some lesser computers and of course a more capable computer would be better:

      Desktop PC
      Laptop
      Processor
      2.4 GHz dual core
      1.6 GHz quad coreor2.4 GHz dual core
      Video Card

      System RAM
      2 GB
      Dedicated Video RAM

      Program Installation Requirements
      5GB of free hard drive spaceDVD drive
      Additional Requirements
      USB portinternet connection
      Some additional technical details: • SoftPlan can be run on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. SoftPlan remodel can only be run on 64-bit operating systems • SoftPlan will take advantage of dual core and hyper threading processors.  See also Will SoftPlan run on a Mac? Some more detailed hardware information for users of SoftPlan 2016: Processor (CPU) Minimum:  2.4 GHz dual core. Preferred:  Multiple (4+) Cores and Hyper Threading will provide considerable benefits when working in 3D, less noticeable but still desirable for non-3D work. They are also more important than raw processor speed. Graphics (Video) Card  Minimum:  DirectX11 support, 512 MB dedicated RAM. Preferred:  DirectX 11 support, 1 GB+ dedicated RAM. The higher the number of pixel shaders, vertex shaders, and stream processors the better the resulting 3D performance will be in all modes but Rendered. SoftPlan Rendered mode uses the CPU and not the graphics card, and this is where the multiple cores will really come into play. Exclusions:  Workstation class graphics cards, such as the Quadro series, are generally not recommended as they tend to deliver poor performance when used with SoftPlan, which is designed to take advantage of features provided by so called ‘gaming’ cards, features which most workstation cards lack. System RAM  Minimum:  2 GB. Preferred:  8 GB+ In general “more is better,” but there is a point where adding more no longer provides a significant performance boost. Where that point will be however is difficult to predict. Operating System  Minimum:  Windows Vista SP2 32-bit Preferred:  Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10 64-bit Limitations:  32-bit operating systems will allow SoftPlan to run but are not recommended as they are limited in their amount of available RAM. General Caveat Because a computer is comprised of numerous components each with unique performance capabilities it is impossible to recommend an ‘ideal system,’ nor can recommendations on specific brands or hardware components be made.

    • You will be given a full credit of what you paid for remodel towards the full SoftPlan. For example $2585 (SoftPlan) – $985 (SoftPlan remodel) = $1600.
