Here are our recommendations:

CPU: A modern Intel or AMD CPU will work great with evo. We are currently not using all the cores, but will parallelize more parts of the software in the future. We work with Intel i7 CPUs but AMD should be okay too. A fast CPU will reduce calculation time and is very important. If you need to save money: Top Models are not necessary, but high end models are highly suggested. 

RAM: As the amount of RAM will greatly influence the performance of evo and RAM is not very expensive at the moment: As much as possible.

GPU: A good graphic card is the most important thing. These graphics cards don't have to be very expensive, but for our newest DIALux evo software they must support OpenGL 3.0. Your graphic card should have a memory of minimum 1 GB, but 2 GB or more are recommended. It is also very important that the graphic card has got its 'own memory' and not a 'shared memory'. More than one GPU will not help.

We have learned that there were frequent problems with (new) drivers of Intel graphics cards, so we would like to suggest a graphic card from NVIDIA or AMD.

The display resolution should be min. 1024 x 768 pixel.

Our DIALux evo software runs with the following Windows operating systems: 


  • Windows 7 (32/64 bit)
  • Windows 8.1 (32/64 bit)
  • Windows 10 (32/64 bit)
