Autocad_2004 on SEMPRON or CELERON processor

Discussion in 'AutoCAD' started by Andrea Severini, Dec 10, 2004.

  1. Hi,
    I have to buy a new computer where I have to use Autocad2004.
    I can't spend many moneys so I think to buy a PC with SEMPRON or CELERON
    processor with 1 GB of RAM.

    Will I have any problem to work?

    Thanks in advance

    If you are an experienced user of AutoCAD you do not want either of
    these chips. You will experience very poor performance. If you are a
    beginner you may not notice for a while.

    Celeron processors have less Cache memory.
    No matter how fast it is, as soon as calculations are needed the cache comes
    Not enough cache means switching to the very slow main memory, thus
    resulting in poor performance.
    Don't do it.
    If you can't afford the money now, save for another year, than buy a new
    proper system, it's worth it.
    The system specs are always very optimistic, don't beleive them.
    It would be a better idea to have the developers build the new autocad
    version on these old wrecks.
    That would speed up the software.

    When I was learning AutoCad, I ran into huge resource problems, because I was
    making it do stupid, unnecessary things. As I gained experience, my resource
    management became more rational. I would posit almost the opposite of what is
    posted above.
