Hardware
CPU

Required :

64-bit Intel® or AMD® Single-core processor with SSE2 instruction set

Recommended :

64-bit Intel® or AMD® multi-core processor with SSE2 instruction set


The use on multi-core systems with a lot of main memory enables efficient modelling and simulation of extremely large and therefore relevant morphologies.
Whether on single workstations with multi-core processors or over distributed computer systems with the Message Passing Interface (MPI), you benefit from GeoDict's scalability.

Graphics hardware

Required :

Intel Iris HD500 (Intgrated Graphics Card on Intel i-Cores)

Recommended :

GeForce 1000 Series


GeoDict's graphical user interface (GUI) requires a graphics card and an operating system that supports OpenGL 2.
To use the neural networks of FiberFind you need a graphics card from NVIDIA® with Cuda® cores.

RAM

Required :

4 GB

Recommended :

minimum 16 GB


The available RAM determines the size of the structures which can be edited with GeoDict.
For more information we have compiled a Recommended Systems Table.

Disk space

Required :

1 GB for the GeoDict installation

Recommended :

At least 1 TB for the storage of simulation results


GeoDict itself requires about 1 GB of disk space. To be able to perform large experiments, such as filter life time experiments with FilterDict, or to store many results from different experiments, GeoDict needs more memory to store the result files.

We recommend the following configurations based on the available budget, but do not sell the hardware.
Together with our hardware partner Delta Computer we created the configurations below.

Budget € Cores RAM GB Graphics RAM GB Visualization in Voxel Simulations in Voxel
