Which is the ideal computer for rendering in Lumion

Yes, the graphics card has to be good but remember that the CPU has to be even better.

If you are a professional in rendering and animation, Lumion can be a good choice, but you have to pay attention to the computer that runs it. Whether or not you render on laptop, desktop or you will assemble your own configuration, we will show you three different price variants: from the most expensive (gold), over the middle price range (silver) to the best version (bronze).

You will need a computer with uninterrupted use of Lumion fast graphic map i even faster processor. But what you need to keep in mind when buying a desktop or laptop is to pay attention to detail. For example, screen resolution plays a big role when it comes to performance. But first you need to differentiate between “Gaming” and “Rendering” computers.

Is working in Lumion, the most important component of your computer is the CPU.

There are two components that make a difference in this case. That are GPU (graphics card) i CPU (procesor). When it comes to a gaming computer, we know in the beginning that the GPU must be as good as possible, because these computers use the GPU to the extreme. However, when it comes to the CPU component, it does not have to be the best that can be found on the market.

When it comes to animation and rendering in software like Lumion, the situation is completely reversed. The most important component of your computer is the CPU. Therefore, this is not a place where you should save.


There are a large number of laptops on the market from different manufacturers. The following laptops are recommended:

Gold: ASUS ROG Mothership GZ700, ALIENWARE M17 R1 i Razer Blade Pro 17;
Silver: ASUS ROG Zephyrus S (GX531), Tracer-III-17R-Slim-ET9957 i Razer Blade;
Bronze: Lenovo Legion Y540 i TRACER III 15Z SLIM VR 300.

Desktop computers

To work in a Lumion environment you will need it fast GPU for fast rendering and good performance. A good desktop computer must also have very good CPU to be a graphics card support and run a 64-bit Windows 10 operating system. When buying a desktop computer, you need to pay attention to the following things:

  • GPU: Rendering animations and movies is an extremely demanding task for your computer. The minimum 2000 Passmark as well as 2GB of internet memory will keep performance to a minimum. Lumion will definitely be faster with two graphics cards;
  • CPU: Ideally 3.0+ GHz with 4 or more cores;
  • RAM: 8GB (for simple scenes);
  • Operating system: 64-bit Windows 10, 8.1 or 7 SP1 with all upgrades;
  • Monitor resolution: Minimum 1600x1080px (higher resolution requires better graphics card).

Recommended desktops available on the market:

Gold: Dell Alienware Aurora Rayzen Edition, ASUS ROG Strix GL10CS i MSI Trident X Plus 9SF-054US
Silver: Origin Millennium, Dell Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition i HP Pmen Obelisk Desktop;
Bronze: CyberpowerPC Gamer Master 8000 i CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra 2070 Super

Assemble your own beast

Many will choose to assemble the rendering machine themselves, not only because the availability of the above computers is questionable, but also because you are in complete control of the price and performance of your configuration. Keep in mind that the minimum requirements are for a Lumion Nvidia or AMD graphics card with a minimum of 2000 PassMark points and a minimum of 2GB of internal memory.

Recommended graphics cards (GPU):

Gold: NVIDIA GTX 1080;
Silver: NVIDIA GTX 1070;
Bronzania NVIDIA GTX 1060 (6GB version).

Recommended amount of RAM:

Gold: 64 GB;
Silver: 32 GB;
Bronze: 16 GB.

What screen resolution As for, the best and safest recommendation is a dimension monitor 1920 × 1080 pixels. Higher resolution monitors have a negative impact on Lumion’s performance. If you plan to use 4K resolution (2840 × 2160), you will need a GTX 1080 graphics card (or even better) to achieve optimal performance.
