Memory: 16 GB RAM for Vortex Studio Player
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (or better) with supported driver
Vortex Studio supports the following C++ compiler:
Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 (VC14) and above
Support for Microsoft Visual Studio Version 2010 (VC10) has been deprecated.
Python version 2.7.13 is supported. The corresponding Anaconda distribution 18.104.22.168 allows for an easy integration of Vortex on various platforms.
To use the system interpreter instead of the embedded Vortex one, python27.dll must be removed from the Vortex binaries. Only scripts run in release mode will be able to link with the Anaconda distribution.
Graphics Card Information
Vortex Studio has been extensively tested with NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards.
NVIDIA GTX 970, 1070 and RTX 2070 are tested with driver 388.59.
Additionally, NVIDIA GTX 1070 and RTX 2070 cards have been explicitly tested for high performance rendering with NVIDIA's 417.22 WHQL driver.
All other graphics cards listed in the release notes of the 417.22 driver should work with Vortex Studio but some performance or rending degradation might occur. These include:
GTX 1050, 1060, 1080
GTX 950, 960, 970, 980
GTX 750, 760, 770, 780
Equivalent notebook GPUs
On computers that have multiple graphics cards (e.g., laptops with integrated Intel card and dedicated NVIDIA graphics card), the default configuration of these systems is to auto-select the card to run the application, which might prevent Vortex Studio from running (or might show a blank viewport). Using the NVIDIA Control Panel, select Manage 3D Settings and change the Preferred graphics processor to High-performance NVIDIA processor.
Supported VR Hardware
Vortex Studio supports the following VR hardware via the OpenVR protocol:
HTC Vive Pro
Simulink/MATLAB 2015 and above, with real-time UDP protocol, are supported.
