Hi everyone,

I wonder if any all-in-one PCs are powerful enough to work with Lumion 9/9.5, and if so - which one and what is your experience?

Hi Ronny

Nearly all of the all-in-one PCs that I have researched today are those only with integrated graphics, thus no dedicated graphics card, so they will not meet minimum specifications for Lumion as in:

Knowledge Base: What kind of computer does Lumion need?

Knowledge Base: Which graphics card do you need?

There are one or two of the brands that are also recognized in the gaming world for example Asus and Acer that do have some models with dedicated cards, but the cards are (from what I have seen) low-level cards not suitable for realtime 3D graphics.

There is the Microsoft Surface Studio 2 (Consumer Model) 28" Intel Core i7 2TB SSD 32GB Ram GTX1070 WIN 10 PRO which does meet specifications.  We have limited experience of such, mainly with other surface or surface book devices.  The GTX 1070 should be capable of handling moderately to very complex scenes.

Is there any specific reason to be looking at all-in-one devices as compared to laptops or desktops?

Hi Peter,

Thank you for a swift reply :-D

Unfortunately there are not many options yet, but I was asking mostly because I like the sleek and space-saving all-in-one design.
Anyway, I still need to purchase a new PC for design and 3D rendering, so maybe a new gaming laptop + external display (monitor) will work just fine for me.

Have a nice day ahead!
