Officially Supported Operating Systems
- Windows 7 64-bit, or a Linux 64-bit operating system (Fedora 12 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4)
Some newer Linux distributions have changed their network device
configuration handling and do not work with MARI without some
configuration changes. Known affected distributions at this time include
Fedora 16, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, and CentOS 6 on certain, notably
Dell, hardware. Please see our support FAQs
for more information.
Minimum Hardware Requirements
- Quad-core processor
- 250GB disk space available for caching and temporary files (or a minimum of 50GB if you're working on a small project)
- At least 4GB RAM
- Display with 1680 x 1050 pixel resolution
- An NVIDIA or AMD graphics card with at least 1GB of RAM and OpenGL 3.2 support (see Tested graphics cards below)
Displacement preview is currently only available on the cards and drivers that support OpenGL 4.0 or newer.
Virtual Memory Requirements
It is recommended that virtual memory be available for MARI to use, especially when handling large projects.
The use of virtual memory improves stability, helping to prevent data loss on large projects.
Tested Graphics Cards
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680
- NVIDIA Quadro (Fermi Series) 4000

Please download and install the latest graphics driver for your card from the
NVIDIA or AMD websites.
Please ensure that you are using 8.982.8.1 drivers or higher for AMD cards.
Due to the number of cards available in the market, we are unable to test every card and, therefore, cannot
officially qualify all of them individually. However, If your machine/GPU specifications meet the requirements mentioned,
theoretically Mari should work fine for you.
