This page regroups system requirements and hardware compatibility information.
Below is a list of hardware and systems supported by the application:
To get good performance when using the UV Tile workflow we advise to use:
- 32GB of RAM
- GPU with 8GB of VRAM
- SSD to store both project and application cache.
- For working in comfortable conditions we recommend a monitor with a resolution greater than 1 Mega Pixels and wider than 1280 pixels.
- Exporting at 8K (8192*8192 pixels) requires a GPU with more than 2GB of VRam.
- Only versions 2019.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 a library dependency issues (FT_Get_Font_Format error). We recommend updating the system or installing the following library .
- To use the software via RDP (Remote Desktop) see the dedicated documentation page.
- Crash on Ryzen CPU when baking, can be fixed by updating the BIOS.

Drivers compatibility issues
For a detailed list of GPU drivers issues per constructor please take a look a the dedicated documentation page.
GPU Raytracing for Baking
To enable GPU Raytracing via Optix or DXR the minimum drivers recommended above must be installed.
DXR requires the following minimum configuration as well:
- Windows 10 version 1809 (build number 10.0.17763), see this page for more information
- GPU with Pascal architecture (Nvidia GeForce 10XX)
GPU raytracing runs optimally on dedicated ray tracing hardware such as NVIDIA GeForce RTX or NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPUs.
