Essential things to know about PowerCADD 9...
Why Intel only?
During testing and development PC8 and now 9 was benchmarked against PPC and Intel machines. There was a huge variation in performance across the board on PPC bases. No pattern to suggest what was going on could be resolved. To fix this situation would have meant huge amounts of time to what in the end may not have been a satisfactory result. So a decision was made to make 8 Intel only and of course 9 is also. Looking forward and putting all future efforts into the Intel solution.
PowerCADD V9 maximizes the Intel engine Mac. It maximizes the speed of the Intel Mac main processor engines that you chose and the ‘turbo charging’ graphics processors that you chose. The experience will be more of a sit back tightly in your seat and an eye popping experience of speed and comfort. It will be like when you first hit the accelerator pedal of your new powerful V8 vehicle and said ‘Wow!’ or ‘Right ON!’. You will express the same sentiment when you fire up PowerCADD V9 for the first time. However, you will NOT have to learn how to drive all over again. The real feel will come when you realize the details of the improvements and the elegance with which the details have been crafted. It will be much like when you get to run your hand over the well crafted ‘new leather’ and feel the ‘double stitching’.
Will it take a day or two to discover all those ‘new details’; those ‘details’ that you and your friends have always lusted for? Yes it will. But just like with any new vehicle, they will become common place.
More importantly, however, is the need for speed.
