Graphic card for Altair Flux

The graphic cards required to run Altair Flux 2D, Skew, 3D and PEEC should have the following characteristics:

Element Characteristics
Graphic card
  • OPENGL V2.0 compatible for an optimal graphic quality (see below)
  • NVIDIA chipset recommended

Altair Flux uses the OPENGL V2.0 graphic technology. This technology provides improved rendering and smoother motion when moving objects.

This technology requires:
  • the use of a graphic card compatible with OPENGL V2.0
  • the latest version of the graphic card driver supplied by the manufacturer
A summary of the conditions of use is presented in the table below:
Conditions of use
Installation of a graphic card compatible with OPENGL V2.0:
  • NVIDIA GeForce 6200 and higher
  • ATI Radeon X1300 and higher
Installation of the latest version of the card driver
Warning: The use of graphic chipsets with shared memory is not recommended.

It is preferable to use graphic chipsets with dedicated memory.
