Archicad is 'Scary Fast' on Mac
Graphisoft, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software solution developer for architecture and multidisciplinary design, is featured by Apple in their recent global launch, in which the tech giant unveiled the latest MacBook Pro and the iMac. Supercharged by the M3 family of chips, Apple chose Archicad to demonstrate unprecedented speed and versatility on the new Macs.
Apple has revealed significant technological advances in the MacBook Pro and the 24-inch iMac featuring the M3 chip, showing how the software seamlessly works with the hardware, resulting in a powerful and efficient workflow. The high-speed performance delivered by the combination of Archicad and Apple Mac devices promises to turbo-charge architectural design.

Apple + Graphisoft
The relationship between Apple and Graphisoft can be traced to the 1980s when Steve Jobs came across an early version of Archicad. His first impressions of the software led him to throw Apple’s support behind the further development of Archicad. Graphisoft was a small company with limited resources, working within the economic and political confines of what was then communist Hungary. Jobs also introduced Graphisoft to Apple’s worldwide distribution network.
