GPU

Design X and Control X recommended graphics cards

Recommended: Dedicated (Non-Integrated) Graphics Card that meets the criteria below:

Video Card RAM: 2GB or More

Video Card Framework: Must support OpenGL 4.0 or above

Series: NVIDIA Quadro

Notes:

If you use the AMD Radeon series, the panning or rotation in the application might not operate correctly. To solve this problem, uncheck the Use Custom Settings option under 3D Standard Settings in the Catalyst Control Center dialog box and move the slider to the left.

It is recommended to set the anti-aliasing value lower than 8. Otherwise, detection of 3D edges may not work properly or there may be problems with panning or rotating within the application. If anti-aliasing is disabled, the edges and boundaries of shaded objects can be jagged if displayed at angles close to 0 or 90 degrees.

Control, Wrap and Capture recommended graphics cards

Recommended: Dedicated (Non-Integrated) Graphics Card that meets the criteria below:

Video Card RAM: 2GB or More
