System Requirements for GeoDict

GeoDict can be used on a wide variety of hardware and operating system configurations, from mobile workstations or shared memory workstations to high-performance computing clusters.

Software Recommendations

Operating systems

Microsoft® Windows® 10 Home / Pro (64 bit) für Current Business Branch

Math2Market GmbH guarantees that the current GeoDict release is always compatible with the following operating systems:

  • Windows 10 Home / Pro (64 bit) für Current Branch for Business (CBB)

Hardware Recommendations

CPU

Required :    64-bit Intel® or AMD® Single-core processor with SSE2 instruction set
Recommended :    64-bit Intel® or AMD® multi-core processor with SSE2 instruction set

The use on multi-core systems with a lot of main memory enables efficient modelling and simulation of extremely large and therefore relevant morphologies.
Whether on single workstations with multi-core processors or over distributed computer systems with the Message Passing Interface (MPI), you benefit from GeoDict's scalability.

Graphics hardware

Required :    Intel Iris HD500 (Intgrated Graphics Card on Intel i-Cores)
Recommended :    GeForce 1000 Series

GeoDict's graphical user interface (GUI) requires a graphics card and an operating system that supports OpenGL 2.
To use the neural networks of FiberFind you need a graphics card from NVIDIA® with Cuda® cores.

RAM

Required :    4 GB
Recommended :    minimum 16 GB

The available RAM determines the size of the structures which can be edited with GeoDict. For more information we have compiled a Recommended Systems Table.

Disk space

Required :    1 GB for the GeoDict installation
Recommended :    At least 1 TB for the storage of simulation results

GeoDict itself requires about 1 GB of disk space. To be able to perform large experiments, such as filter life time experiments with FilterDict, or to store many results from different experiments, GeoDict needs more memory to store the result files.

Recommended RAM configurations

We recommend the following configurations based on the available budget, but do not sell the hardware.
Together with our hardware partner Delta Computer we created the configurations below.
