The following is an explanation of minimum and recommended technical specifications
for a computer to run RhinoGold effectively
Laptop and Desktop computer systems, with mouse and keyboard, are the only computer systems that can run our products effectively
Tablet style computers, such as the Microsoft Surface, are not recommended
* Tablet style computers are popular for their compact size and portability, but at this time they do not have the recommended hardware performance, especially graphics cards, to run our products effectively. You may be able to install and run our software, but the experience will likely be very slow and limited. Additionally, our software is not designed to utilize a touch screen interface and must use a mouse and keyboard.
Minimum: Intel i3/AMD (64bit – Year 2010 or newer)
Recommended: Intel i5 Quad Core 2GHz or higher
Intel Xeon Series processors are not recommended
* RhinoGold is a very processor intensive program, so getting a fast processor is the best way to increase your performance.
Recommended: 8GB or more
* RhinoGold is a 64bit program that can use as much memory as your computer has available. Generally 8gb is plenty for most designers, however, if you plan on using your computer for more than just RhinoGold, more memory would be helpful.

Graphic Card with OpenGL 2.0 or higher
NVIDIA Quadro GPUs not recommended supported
