Spotlight: Operating System Support: Sunsetting 32-bit

CNC Software (Creators of Mastercam) continues to review the Operating System (OS) requirements for Mastercam with a view to providing the best possible user experience for our customers. Mastercam X7 will be the last major release to support Windows 7 32-bit OS. Future major releases will target Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 8 64-bit only. Our information shows that the large majority of our customers already use 64-bit systems, benefitting from the faster, more stable environment they deliver.
If you are purchasing a new computer, QTE Recommends an i7 processor, with 8+ GB RAM, and an Nvidia Quadro or ATI FirePro (Open GL Graphics Support). If you are performing programming for large models we recommend 16-64 GB of RAM.
