SOCET GXP® System Requirements

Systems Requirements

  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows® 10; 64-bit
  • Network: 1 Gigabit (1 Gbps) or better recommended, minimum 10 Megabit (10 Mbps)
  • System Disk/Installation Location: 14 GB of free disk space for software – recommend SSD for best performance
  • Data Disk: Recommend 1-2 TB disk space for data – 7200 RPM or faster disks
  • RAM: Minimum 16GB RAM; 32GB or more recommended
  • CPU: Minimum 8 core CPU; recommended 16 core or better and minimum 2.0 GHz speed

Hardware Requirements/Supported Video Cards

The minimum recommended graphics card is the Nvidia® Quadro K4000; however, it is recommended to have a Nvidia Quadro P4000 or better for better performance. Lower level Nvidia Quadro cards are available, but they do not offer stereo sync nor do we test SOCET GXP with them.

When performing ASM terrain extraction, it is recommended to use a Nvidia Quadro P6000 or RTX6000.
