Release Driver Notes
2017.1 No specific recommendation. Typically the latest version of driver would be recommended. We recommend the Quadro series GPU's. GTX Cards are not tested, however customers do use the Titan with Nucoda and Phoenix with success.

AMD Graphics Cards

Note :

  • Although Nucoda and Phoenix is not tested with the AMD Range of high end GPU's they should work.
  • Be aware that some manufacturers make use of Nvidia CUDA for performance when debayering or rendering OFX.
  • We will not prioritise any issues or bugs that are related to using AMD GPU's at this time
