Exemplary graphic cards

Information about NVIDIA GeForce RTX series of cards: NVIDIA Geforce RTX cards are compatible with current versions of our software and have similar efficiency to their equivalent in the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1000 series (RTX 2070 = GTX1070). The CAD Projekt K&A company analyzes the possibility of implementing solutions in its software that allow you to fully use the computing capabilities of RTX series cards.

WARNING! CAD Projekt K&A programs on graphics cards other than NVIDIA GeForce will not function.
Please be advised that CAD Projekt K&A provides technical support for its software operating on equipment compliant with the manufacturer’s requirements together with an active service package. If you have an older generation graphic card, you should verify its performance with the above table. If in doubt, please contact our technical support. Please be advised that older, non-updated versions of CAD Projekt software may not work properly on new, commercially available NVIDIA GeForce cards, as well as on other new computer components or the latest versions of Windows operating systems whose release date precedes the date of distribution of your software.
The correct operation of the application and the size of the project – in order to ensure correct operation of the CAD Projekt K&A application, the projects should be properly optimized. The speed of rendering and the correct operation of our applications are most affected by the models that are used in your projects.

Project calculation times of 1,5 million surfaces on sample graphics cards

In the table, we present the calculation times for individual render shots of the Path tracing example project with 1,5 million surfaces on three sample graphics cards, for Full HD, 4K and above 4K. The given times are indicative and may differ from the times achieved by customers due to differences in lighting, textures and models used in the project.
