The following article describes the minimum and recommended hardware/software requirements for PIX4Dmatic.

Minimum

  • OS: Windows 10, 11 (64 bit) or macOS Monterey and Big Sur.
  • CPU: Quad-core or hexa-core Intel i5.
  • GPU: Any  NVIDIA GPU that supports OpenGL 4.1 or higher.
  • RAM:
    • 32 GB (2'000-5'000 images at 20 MP).
    • 64 GB (5'000-10'000 images at 20 MP).
  • Disk Space*:
    • 100 GB - 200 GB Free space (2'000-5'000 images at 20 MP).
    • 200 GB - 300 GB Free space (5'000-10'000 images at 20 MP).
 
Note: Currently only Nvidia GPU cards can contribute to processing. AMD cards do not have the required CUDA acceleration technology.
 
Important: The maximum size of datasets that are being tested by Pix4D contain 10'000 images at 20 MP. We recommend splitting the datasets of more than 10'000 images into multiple projects in order to ensure optimal processing.
