These are the minimumsAny of you know how much CPU or GPU power the AI denoising SW uses.
IOW, will I need to use a GPU card to use these denoise SW?
Hardware Minimum Requirements
|Processor (CPU)||Intel i5 or AMD Ryzen 5 equivalent or above (3.0 GHz and above)|
|System Memory (RAM)||8GB (16GB and higher is recommended for improved performance)|
|Graphics Card (GPU)||OpenGL 3.3 or higher required.|
Nvidia GTX 740 or AMD Radeon 5870 (higher series graphics cards recommended)
|Dedicated Graphics Memory (VRAM)||2 GB (6GB or more for optimum performance)|
|Display (Monitor)||At least 1024x768|
With that said, my system has an AMD Rhyzen 5 6 core 3.6GHz CPU, Nvidia GTX 1070 with 8GB, and 32GB system memory. I have DeNoise AI set to use my GPU, and a full session runs in about 1 minute, which includes opening the image, running all three denoise options in auto mode, and saving back to disk. The minimum requirements will work, but it takes a lot longer to run the process. A lot of people get all worked up, because they try to run the software on a standard notebook PC, which are usually underpowered, even if they meet the minimums, and the integrated video is very weak on those machines. If you have a good GPU, then use the GPU, since it should be faster. You can download a demo and test it out to get an idea of how well it works. Hope that helps.
