System requirements

  • 64 bit - Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows Server, Windows 10


  • NVIDIA GPU - CUDA capability 2.0 or later
  • NVIDIA GTX 4xx or later series
  • NVIDIA Quadro 4xxx or later
  • NVIDIA Tesla CM20xx

FurryBall RT

  • Autodesk Maya  64 bit  - 2011(hotfix 3), 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016
  • Maxon Cinema 4D 64 bit - R15, R16, R17 (R15.057, R16.050, R17.025) or higher

FurryBall 4.8

  • Autodesk Maya  64 bit  - 2010, 2011(hotfix 3), 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
  • Autodesk 3DS Max 64 bit -  2013, 2014, 2015
  • Maxon Cinema 4D 64 bit -  R15, R16 

System recommendation - NVIDIA TITAN 6GB

  • Always use the latest NVIDIA drivers! (some older versions can cause crashing of FurryBall)
  • Remember, if you will use FurryBall with OLD, or SLOW GPU, it NEVER be powerful as it is!!!
    It could be MUCH slower than CPU render if rendering on old GPU. - Compare your card with others.
  • Multi-GPU render is supported, but we recommend combine only SAME GPUs. Combining LOW and HIGH card in one computer can be paradoxically slower, than only one single GPU. 
  • You can't combine MAXWELL, KEPLER, FERMI and TESLA cards together. (for example: Titan core is KEPLER, but TITAN X is MAXWELL) - More info.
  • Processor (CPU) speed is NOT important for GPU rendering An expensive multi-core CPU is not required, but a fast multi-core CPU will improve the scene loading speed and working in 3D application.
  • The most important for rendering is GPU memory - Don't skimp on GPU Memory! Examples of memory usage.
  • We STRONGLY recommend at minimum 3 GB for Raytracing with latest KEPLER core (6xx, 7xxx, Titan series).
  • For serious work in bigger resolution there is optimal NVIDIA GTX Titan or Titan X with 6 or 12 GB memory, or Quadro K6000 with 12 GB memory
  • Your GPU card memory WILL NOT DOUBLE when you use 2x Titan with 6GB, your total memory will be still just 6GB!

  • When you combine LOW card with 3GB and HIGH with 6GB, your total memory will be just 3GB!
  • on Apple OSX there is possible to run FurryBall with dual boot.

Recommended hardware configuration for smooth working

  • i7 4-core or more core CPU for optimum CPU performance

  • 16 GB of system RAM
  • GTX TITAN, GTX 7xx or Quadro K5000, K6000 with the highest amount of video memory available (3-6 GB and more)
