Lumion Workstation

Configuration Recommendations

CPU / Processor

Since Lumion is a GPU-based render engine, the best Lumion CPU must provide the fastest single-thread performance, which corresponds with a high GHz value. In general, when comparing CPUs of the same product family, the higher the GHz value, the faster the single-thread performance of the CPU. Most of the actual rendering calculations are performed by the video card / GPU, so in order to prevent any bottlenecks, the CPU must feed data to the GPU as fast as possible, and that's where the higher operating frequency CPUs shine. The ideal Lumion CPU has a decent amount of CPU cores (8 or more cores) and a high operating frequency (4.8+ GHz). The Orbital Silenced C2000 comes with the two fastest single-threaded CPUs available today - the Intel Core i7 10700k at 5.1GHz and the Core i9 at 5.3 GHz. Both of those CPUs offer maximum single-threaded performance while still offering 8-10 cores to handle Lumion's multi-threaded tasks. 

Memory / RAM

Moderately complex lumion scenes will require somewhere between 16 and 32GB of RAM. Very large, complex projects, which Lumion defines as "a detailed city, airport or stadium or a detailed multi-floor building with interiors made up of many models and HD textures" would require 32GB of RAM or more. 32GB of RAM would be a good starting point for most Lumion power users. It is important to configure the system with enough RAM such that Lumion never runs out of memory capacity. If the program runs out of RAM, the data spills over to the paging file, which will have a negative impact on performance. It's also important to keep in my the RAM requires of any other CAD design software you're using in conjunction with Lumion. All Orbital Computers Workstations are designed to be user expandable with non-proprietary memory modules; that way you can start with a lower RAM capacity to keep costs down and upgrade as needed in the future. All RAM used by Orbital comes with a manufacturer's lifetime warranty on parts. Give us a call at 877-976-7510 and let us know your project details - we'll be able to make personalized recommendations on hardware for your unique needs. 

Graphics Card

The GPU is by far the most important component for your Lumion workstation as the majority of the heavy lifting is performed by the video card. Lumion sets out the following recommendations for your GPU:

Small projects with limited textures: 6GB vRAM GPU like the RTX 2060 or greater. 

Complex Projects like a large home with detailed interiors, or any project using high-end models such as fine-detail trees: 8GB vRAM GPU like the RTX 2070 Super or RTX 3070 or greater. 

High-end Projects like a detailed city, commercial building, detailed landscape, etc: Most powerful single-GPU that you can afford - Nvidia RTX 3080 or RTX 3090.

Lumion will only make use of a single video card, even if you had multiple GPUs installed, so in order to maximize performance, start with the most powerful GPU that fits within your budget and specify the rest of the build around that, taking into account max CPU GHz value and robust cooling and power supply in order to keep that GPU running at peak performance. 

Storage

A fast solid state drive (SSD) is included by default on all Orbital workstations. Fast drives will help improve file loading, saving, and transferring times. For most Inventor workstations, we recommend at least a 500GB solid state drive for your operating system and all programs, as well as a traditional hard drive as needed for long-term storage of spare data. We also offer Samsung M.2 NVMe PCI-e SSDs which operate at speeds nearly 5-6 times faster than normal SSDs for maximum storage performance.

System

For most users, the Orbital Silenced C2000 is the recommended base workstation for Lumion. The C2000 is available with the fastest single-threaded Intel Core i7 or i9  CPU while still maintaining a healthy amount of CPU cores/threads. We highly encourage you to use the most powerful GPU option that fits within your budget for Lumion rendering. The Silenced C2000 is available with the RTX 2060, 2070, 3070, 3080, and 3090 GPUs. The more powerful the GPU, the better your Lumion experience will be. Our Silenced C2000 system comes standard with top of the line cooling and power support components, which are absolutely critical to maximizing Lumion performance. When rendering, the system draws extreme amounts of power and puts out a great deal of heat. The power supply must be able to feed the system with adequate, clean power. The CPU cooler must be able to cool off the processor without throttling. The case must be of a high quality design that provides enough intake and exhaust airflow to keep the system running. Our Silenced C2000 is designed to handle all of these requirements without breaking a sweat and staying quiet the whole time. We use Fractal Design cases with exceptional system airflow, Noctua CPU coolers, and 80 Plus Gold certified fully modular power supplies with 10 year warranties.
