1) min. 16 GB required for Design Workstations, 32 GB for Production Systems
2) Xeons offer a higher amount and bandwidth of PCI-e lanes, L3-cache size, support for ECC-RAM and durability (qualified to handle
the heavier load over a longer period). Therefore, Xeon processors are mandatory for extensive Video I/O and playback
3) While most dedicated (discrete) graphics cards are compatible with Ventuz we highly recommend the professional series of NVIDIA
or AMD for production use.
4) While Ventuz is not very demanding regarding disk speed in general, the data transfer rate from HDD to GPU becomes a crucial
factor for good results and fluid playback when dynamic assets or video content are used in a project. Solid State Disks (SSD) or SSD RAIDs
with high data transfer rates are highly recommended for projects with content alike.
