This page regroups system requirements and hardware compatibility information.
Below is a list of hardware and systems supported by the application:
If your system meets the system requirements above but performance is still sluggish, Sampler may be using the wrong GPU. If you are using an Nvidia GPU, change which GPU Sampler uses by following the instructions on this page.
- For working in comfortable conditions we recommend a monitor with a resolution greater than 1 MegaPixel and wider than 1280 pixels.
- Only versions 0.8.x and above have been notarized in order to run on MacOS 10.15 (Catalina).
- On CentOS 7.5 or older, the application may not start because of library dependency issues (FT_Get_Font_Format error). We recommend updating the system or installing the following library.
- The Remote Desktop connection is possible if an OpenGL 3.3 context is available. It will work on Nvidia Quadro but not on Nvidia GeForce because it provides only an OpenGL 1.4 context. If this is an issue, we recommend using alternative solutions such as VNC/Teamviewer.
Below is a list of the GPU models compatible with the application:
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 and above
- NVIDIA Quadro P2200 and above
- AMD Radeon RX 580 and above
- AMD Radeon Pro 5300 M
Unsupported GPU configurations
- Only official Apple configurations are supported
