    System Requirements

    The FLUX:: Analyzer is built around Flux::’s new 2D/3D efficient graphic engine, which employs full GPU-acceleration utilizing an OpenGL 2.0 compliant graphics card. USB displays are not supported.

    In order to experience the outstanding graphical response in FLUX:: Analyzer and to fully take advantage of the software’s analysis capabilities, using a modern nVidia or ATI Radeon graphics card is recommended.
    Older, and other less efficient graphics cards do not have the required performance and specifications, and will offload too much work to the CPU.

    The processor is an important factor as well, and we recommend using at least and Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i5 or newer architecture processor. AMD processors are also supported, but might exhibit lower performance, as they do not offer the same capabilities and optimizations as Intel CPUs.

    System Recommendations

    GPU: AMD/ATI Radeon or nVidia video-card. Intel integrated graphics are tested and works, but with limited capabilites, thus should be avoided.

    Minimum requirements

    • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 1.6 GHz
    • GPU: OpenGL 2.0 or superior compatible, with pixel-shader support

    Recommended configuration

    • CPU: Intel Core i5 @ 1.7 – 2.2 GHz or better
    • GPU: AMD/ATI Radeon or nVidia. Intel integrated graphic-cards are tested and works, but with limited capabilites.

    Common requirements

    • A FLUX:: account, and an iLok account (no iLok USB key required).

    Notes
    Please make sure that the latest version of vendor-provided optimized drivers are installed for your graphics card. Generic drivers may contain bugs and are in general less up-to-date with optimizations presented in drivers specific to your particular graphics card model.

    OS Compatibility

    Mac OS X 64 bit

    • FluxAnalyzer
    • FluxAnalyzer-f64

    The f64 FLUX:: Analyzer application works internally in 64bit float, while the non f64 version works internally in 32bit float, it’s a minor difference in precision, with the 64bit version consuming more processing resources.

    The 32bit version is already very precise, and more than enough for all common everyday applications. The 64bit version is provided for very specific applications; that sometimes may require extreme detail in the analysis.
