AutoCAD for Macintosh

AutoCAD for Macintosh doesn’t work on the Power Mac series, so CAD users who want a little more speed may need to wait a while. AutoCAD uses the Mac’s floating point unit (FPU), and since the 680×0 emulation on the Power Macs lacks one, the software can’t run. Autodesk has not yet announced plans for a Power Mac compatible or native version.
