This page provides details on the system requirements to install V-Ray Standalone.

 

Windows


Please make sure that your system fulfills these requirements before installing V-Ray.

V-Ray is only supported for 64 bit operating systems.
Processor

Intel 64*, AMD64 or compatible processor with SSE4.2 support

RAM

Minimum 8 GB RAM, recommended 64 GB RAM

Actual amount required will vary with scene requirements.

Operating System

Windows 8.1, Windows 10, and Windows 11

USB Port

Required for customers using legacy hardware lock, preferably USB 2.0

TCP/IP

Only IPv4 required for distributed rendering is supported. IPv6 is currently not supported

HDD0.9 GB Hard Disk Space
GPU Support

NVIDIA CUDA with minimum required compute capability 5.2**: Maxwell-, Pascal-, Volta-, Turing- and Ampere-based NVIDIA card(s);

NVIDIA RTX with compute capability 5.2**: RTX cards with latest recommended video driver;

2GB VRAM

V-Ray Production Denoiser: AMD or NVIDIA GPU supporting OpenCL 1.2;

NVIDIA AI Denoiser: Maxwell-, Pascal-, Volta-, Turing-, and Ampere-based NVIDIA card with latest recommended video driver

* Windows 11 is required for running Intel Alder Lake processors.

** CUDA compute capability and card reference

 

Linux


Please make sure that your system fulfills these requirements before installing V-Ray. Note that V-Ray is only supported for 64 bit operating systems.

Processor

Intel 64, AMD64 or compatible processor with SSE4.2 support

RAM

Minimum 8 GB RAM, recommended 64 GB RAM

Larger cache memory, higher memory bandwidth and more cores are better.

Operating SystemRed Hat® Enterprise Linux® 6.5 and 7.2 WS, or CentOS 7.2 (64bit)
USB PortRequired for hardware lock, preferably USB 2.0
TCP/IPOnly IPv4 is supported. IPv6 is currently not supported
HDD1 GB Hard Disk Space
GPU Support

NVIDIA CUDA: Maxwell-, Pascal-, Volta-, Turing-, and Ampere-based NVIDIA card(s) with the latest recommended video driver;

NVIDIA RTX: RTX cards with the latest recommended video driver

V-Ray Production Denoiser: AMD or NVIDIA GPU supporting OpenCL 1.2; 

NVIDIA AI Denoiser: Maxwell-, Pascal-, Volta-, Turing-, or Ampere-based NVIDIA card with the latest recommended video driver

The minimum required compute capability is 5.2*

macOS


Please make sure that your system fulfills these requirements before installing V-Ray. Note that V-Ray is only supported for 64 bit operating systems.

Processor

Intel 64, AMD64 or compatible processor with SSE4.2 support

RAM

Minimum 8 GB RAM, recommended 64 GB RAM

Larger cache memory, higher memory bandwidth and more cores are better.
