Additional to a powerful graphics card (GPU). A fast processor (CPU) and more of computer memory (RAM) is more necessary.

So to get the best performance out of Lumion, you should know the Minimum System Requirements firstly to run the program:

1st/ Minimum system requirements:

Lumion can typically run with the minimum system requirements. More you increase hardware performance. You improve your Lumion experience.
You can meet some performance issues when you work with large scenes or detailed scenes, like urban or rural scenes, 4K videos, 3D grass, or furry materials.
These are the minimum system requirements:

Minimum Requirements
Graphics Card
(GPU)
More than 2,000 PassMark points
Ex. GeForce GTX 1050, Quadro K4200
ProcessorIntel Core i5 with 3.0GHz base/Boost speed or higher
Systeme Memory
(RAM)
8GB MHz as high as possible and never less than 2.2
Graphics Card
Memory
2 GB or More

In this example (Beach House scene), the average frame rate is 13 frames per second using the minimum specifications and a GTX 880M graphics card:

Your render speeds experience will be effected or be slower. The frame rate will be laggy in the Build Mode editor.

Additionally, the render speeds in this example (Beach House scene) for an image sized (1920 x 1080) using a GTX 880M graphics card took 26 seconds:

Computer hardware specifications to render this scene: 1) GTX 880M graphics card, 2) i7-4700HQ @ 2.4 GHz, 3) 16 GB RAM and 4) 4 GB graphics card memory.

After you have an idea about the minimum system requirements to run Lumion, let’s talk about the Recommended System Requirements.

2nd / Recommended system requirements:

For the best performance experience using Lumion, we recommend the following specifications:

Recommended Requirements
Graphics Card
(GPU)
More than 8,000 PassMark points
Ex. GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB memory), Quadro K6000
ProcessorIntel Core i7 with 4.0GHz base/Boost speed or higher
Systeme Memory
(RAM)
32GB MHz as high as possible and never less than 2.2
Graphics Card
Memory
6 GB or More

With these requirements, you will have a smooth experience when working on large scenes, detailed scenes, and Build Mode.

For instance, In this example (Beach House scene), the average frame rate is 18 frames per second using the recommended specifications and a GTX 980 TI graphics card:
