Autodesk Hardware Selection Support Site

This site was created with the intention to make it easier to make sure our computer and graphic card choices are supported by Autodesk's software. Unfortunately the site has died...with 2014 version support or at the very least, the appearance of a lack of support for 2015/16 versions.


It's time to update it?!?

Selecting a product instead of a design suite works for 2015-16, although Revit does not have 2016 available (yet?).

It looks like the site works for individual products through newer releases (e.g. AutoCAD 2016, Revit 2015), but not for the suites. It's a bit of a mixed bag. Per the FAQ, please contact the Certification Team to suggest updates: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=16303612.

While that was a good site for helping an Autodesk customer avoid poor hardware choices, I never really trusted it as a way to decide how to configure a machine for Autodesk Software. They only listed the hardware items that Autodesk tested formally. The hardware compatibility listings never contained a comprehensive list of all hardware types, especially if they were recent releases. It would be really nice if they would update the lists of hardware that they recommend against.

With all the "performance enhancements" listed as major parts of the upgrade, shouldn't a system that works for 2014 work even better for 2016? .-)

Seems a reasonable expectation...true for my computer.
