System Requirements


Windows 10 or Linux Ubuntu 18.04/20.04/22.04 1

Dedicated GPU

A dedicated GPU gives the best performance with Zivid. It is also the best choice if the GPU will be used for more than Zivid’s computations. A medium to high-end AMD or NVIDIA GPU with at least 3 GB of memory is required for optimal performance. This is the preferred solution for Zivid.


  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or better

  • NVIDIA GeForce MX150 or better

  • AMD Radeon RX 550 or better 2 3

CPU with integrated GPU

This is the most cost-efficient solution for Zivid. The benefit of an integrated GPU is that the data transfer from GPU to CPU is fast. A high-end integrated GPU with at least 3 GB of memory available is required for optimal performance.


  • AMD Ryzen 5 2400G or better 2 4

  • Intel i7 with HD630 or better


SuperSpeed USB3 port

Note: Only for Zivid One+


Full performance:

  • 10GBASE-T (10G Copper Ethernet) adapter connected via PCI Express or Thunderbolt 3

Reduced performance:

  • 1000BASE-T and NBASE-T (1G, 2.5G, and 5G over copper) connections

Note: Only for Zivid Two


Use CPU with integrated GPU for applications that require low power consumption, e.g., battery powered mobile platforms with cameras.

Support for Ubuntu 16.04 is removed since SDK 2.7.

To see system requirements for an earlier SDK version that supports Ubuntu 16.04, change the Knowledge base version in the bottom left corner.


Radeon no longer supports SPIR on some GPUs, please verify your GPU drivers support SPIR to be compatible with Zivid Software.

Only relevant for SDK 2.6 and lower; SPIR is no longer required since SDK 2.7.


AMD RDNA cards (such as RX 5500 and RX 5700) can be unstable on Ubuntu depending on the installed GPU driver version and OS version. We recommend to test stability carefully with your setup if you use these models.


AMD integrated GPUs can be unstable on Ubuntu. We recommend to test stability carefully with your setup if you use these GPUs.
