Recommended Systems Requirements

Processor (CPU)
Quad-core and multi-core processor. ZPS is fully optimized for working with multi-core processors. 

Memory (RAM)
A minimum of 4 GB of RAM is sufficient for editing one photograph at a resolution of up to 25 Mpix in the Editor or Develop modules. In order to process larger photos or if you are running other applications such as an internet browser, we recommend at least 8 GB of RAM. Processing multiple photographs simultaneously may require up to 3 GB of RAM for each additional 25 Mpix photo. 

Graphics card (GPU)
ZPS utilizes graphics cards to display images and increase computation speed. Make sure your drivers are up-to-date. 

An integrated graphics card is sufficient for displaying images. 

To increase computation speed, ZPS uses CUDA and OpenCL technologies. Processing images requires more memory than displaying them so we recommend a graphics card with a minimum of 4 GB of RAM.

Hard drive (HDD)
For working with ZPS, we recommend SSD. These drives provide much higher read and write speeds for your files. Because the SSD market is constantly evolving, choose the right product based on current independent reviews.
