Which graphics card is recommended by Dlubal Software?

Answer

For working with RFEM and RSTAB, we recommend a graphics card that accelerates the OpenGL functions on the hardware side. All current graphics cards work this way.

We recommend cards equipped with an NVIDIA graphics processor. However, RFEM and RSTAB do not necessarily need CAD high-performance graphics cards (NVIDIA Quadro ...).

The drivers of the graphics cards must always be kept up-to-date.

The drivers of the so-called mainstream graphics cards (NVIDIA GeForce ...) are better tuned by the driver to different computer configurations, which is why there are far fewer problems than with CAD cards. We do not recommend graphics solutions that are integrated into the chipset or main processor (Intel HD xxxx, G xx, Qxx).

Notebooks are often equipped with two graphics chips - a power-saving processor integrated Intel HD chip and an additional powerful graphics chip from NVIDIA or AMD. In this case, it is necessary to ensure that RFEM and RSTAB use a powerful graphics chip.
