Does CAD require a good GPU or CPU?
For AutoCAD, the video card is what handles displaying the 2D and 3D models on the screen. Only 3D models require anything more than a basic GPU, though, so if you will only be working with 2D models then you are better off saving money on the GPU and putting that money towards a faster CPU, SSD, or more RAM.
Is AutoCAD CPU intensive or GPU intensive?
Yes it is. AutoCAD is CPU intensive not GPU intensive. Even in large scale 3d modeling the recommended GPU vram is only 128mb. I would recommend 8–16GB high speed RAM though, depending on what your doing in AutoCAD.
Does CAD use GPU?
Auto CAD is a GPU intensive application and depends on GPU a lot for the representations. A decent GPU with at least 2GB VRAM is recommended.
Is RTX 2070 good for CAD?
The RTX 2070 is much better. But keep in mind you can opt for a cheaper GPU like 1660ti, or rtx 2060 if using CPU heavy renderer.
