Minimum Recommended Hardware Specifications


Minimum recommended hardware specification for Windows, Mac, and Linux:

100 Mb of disk space and 1Gb or more of RAM. 2Gb is a good default.

Graphics Card

The Graphic card should have Hardware OpenGL acceleration and 256Mb or more memory. (512Mb or more is recommended)

We recommend NVIDIA (http://www.nvidia.com) brand.

  • GeForce models are good if you do not plan to use hardware stereo.
  • Quadro models can be used with hardware stereo

We do not recommend Intel graphics cards.

Linux Distributions Any modern Linux distribution will work. At MolSoft we use the following versions (or higher).

  • CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
  • openSUSE 12.1
  • Ubuntu 12

Stereo Glasses and Monitors:

We recommend the Zalman 3D monitor and Crystal Eye Glasses. Anaglyph stereo is supported in version 3.8 and above therefore only cheap red/cyan glasses are needed (see http://www.molsoft.com/news.html#anaglyph3D ).
