NOTE: macOS Catalina is now supported by Capture One 12.1.4 and newer versions. Windows 10 (build 1903) is already supported by Capture One 20.0.2.
Recommended System Set-up:
- Intel CPU with 4+ cores
- 16+ GB of RAM
- Solid State Disk (SSD)
- Dual (matching) Graphics card from NVIDIA or AMD with 4GB+ RAM per card
- Calibrated monitor with at least 1920x1200, 24-bit resolution at 96dpi
Note: Due to the significant additional calculation overhead, systems using 4k/5k monitors will require additional resources in addition to the above recommended spec (both in GPU and CPU power). For a Professional experience we recommend at least doubling the specification above for these configurations.
Things to consider when purchasing graphics cards:
If you want to use more than one graphics card, then these must be from the same manufacturer, i.e. NVIDIA or AMD.
We often get asked which graphics cards we recommend and the truth is, we cannot recommend a specific card or components as these are consistently being updated/replaced with newer models.
Generally speaking, the more RAM available to the graphics card and the more CUDA cores (NVIDIA) and Stream Processors (AMD), the higher the performance gain.
