NEW! 64-bit support: More RAM & multi-core support for optimum performance

64-bit support

For the first time Xara Designer Pro X9 allows you enjoy the advantages of a 64-bit application.

The main difference is in the amount of RAM available. On a 64-bit operating system a 32-bit application can use up to 4 GB of RAM, while a native 64-bit application is capable of using up to a terabyte of RAM.

What's more a 64-bit application uses all the processor cores simultaneously to calculate elaborate graphics.

So you can achieve top quality results quicker than ever before.
