Hardware and System Requirements

What are the minimum requirements for RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9?


Answer:

The following computer configurations are required as a minimum for RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9:

  • Working memory (RAM): 4 GB
  • Processor CPU: x64
  • Free mass storage: 10 GB
  • Screen and graphics card resolution: A resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels should be used to correctly display all dialog boxes, windows, and result diagrams.
  • Operating system: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit
  • Graphics card: A graphics card such as NVIDIA or AMD with OpenGL 4.2 support (generally any dedicated GPU released after ~ 2011) We strongly advise against using an integrated GPU such as Intel, as there may be driver issues.

RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9 currently do not run on Linux or Mac OS.

For optimal program capabilities, the following computer configuration is recommended:

  • Working memory (RAM): 64 GB
  • Processor CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K with 8 physical cores or higher.
    The number of cores has a positive effect on the calculation time, and the respective single-core power has a positive effect on the actual program operation and preparation of the graphics data.
  • Use of a Solid State Drive (SSD) to achieve shorter access times and higher data transfer rates.
  • Graphics card: A modern ATI or NVIDIA graphics card with OpenGL support (for example, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 or better).
  • If you use an Nvidia card on a remote computer, you may have to install an additional tool from Nvidia to enable remote accelerated OpenGL:

  • Operating system: Microsoft Windows 11 64-bit
  • The new program generation was developed for connecting with 4k monitors. For optimal user experience, it is necessary to assign the same resolution settings. This way, the computer displays the program clearly and correctly scaled on both monitors. In the case of different scalings, there may be some clarity display issues.
