System requirements


Note: MARI will increase its level of performance with newer more advanced hardware configurations. However, MARI is tested and capable of operating on many older prior-generation systems. For this reason we are listing below minimum requirements, recommended, and on which tests have been performed. Each user’s particular needs may vary.

Officially supported operating systems

  • Mac OS X 10.9.5 (Mavericks) or higher
  • Windows 7 64-bit or higher
  • Linux 64-bit operating system (CentOS/RHEL 6)

Minimum hardware requirements

  • Quad-core processor
  • 10+GB disk space available for caching and temporary files 
  • At least 4GB RAM
  • Display with 1680 x 1050 pixel resolution
  • An NVIDIA or AMD* graphics card with the latest drivers
  • 1GB of graphics memory
  • OpenGL 3.2* or higher 

*Displacement preview is currently only available on the cards and drivers that support OpenGL 4.0 or newer.


Recommended System Requirements

  • 2.5+ Ghz  Quad-core processor
  • 250+ GB disk space available for caching and temporary files. SSD is preferable.
  • 16GB RAM w/ additional virtual memory*
  • Display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution
  • An NVIDIA or AMD* graphics card with the latest drivers
  • 2+ GB of graphics memory 
  • OpenGL 4.4 or higher support. 

*The use of virtual memory improves stability and helps prevent data loss on large projects.

Recommended does not guarantee that it will meet a user's particular needs.

Tested workstation hardware

The below are the configurations that The Foundry have been tested with MARI 3.0. Due to the constantly changing and wide variety of computer hardware available in the market, we are unable to officially certify hardware. The below can be used as a recommendation and does not guarantee that it will meet a user's particular needs.

Please download and install the latest graphics driver from the NVIDIA or AMD websites. Please ensure that you are using 8.982.8.1 drivers or higher for AMD cards.
