The following is a list and explanation of minimum and recommended technical specifications for a computer to run MatrixGold™ effectively. If you have questions about a computer you are about to purchase, please feel free to contact Technical Support for assistance.

CounterSketch Software:

Recommended: A Multiple-Button Mouse with Scroll Wheel
Minimum: A two-button mouse
Tablet style computers, such as the Microsoft Surface, are not recommended
Laptop and Desktop computer systems, with mouse and keyboard, are the only computer systems that can run our products effectively.

Tablet style computers are popular for their compact size and portability, but at this time they do not have the recommended hardware performance, especially graphics cards, to run our products effectively. You may be able to install and run our software, but the experience will likely be very slow and limited. Additionally, while CounterSketch® does have limited touch screen functionality, it is not designed to operate entirely without a mouse and keyboard.

Minimum: Intel i5 Quad Core, 2GHz or higher
Intel Xeon Series processors are not recommended.
CounterSketch® is a very processor intensive program, so getting a fast processor is the best way to increase your performance. We do not recommend the i3 chipset for CounterSketch® as they are only dual-core entry level processors in the ‘i series’, and are meant more for low-power mobile platforms. While you can find a suitable computer with an i5 chip, if you plan on doing a lot of rendering, animations, or multi-tasking, the i7 would be a better option.

Minimum: 4 GB
CounterSketch® is a 64bit application that can use as much memory as your computer has available. Generally 8GB is plenty for most designers, however, if you plan on using your computer for more than just CounterSketch®, more memory would be helpful.

Minimum: NVIDIA GeForce 700 Series (GTX 750, 850, 950, 1050)
NVIDIA Quadro GPUs are not recommended or supported
NVIDIA GeForce GTX with minimum 1GB of Video RAM

Gemvision only recommends the GeForce Series of NVIDIA Graphics cards. Visit NVIDIA’s website for detailed descriptions of the various models. Please contact Gemvision technical support if you have any questions.

(64-bit) Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate

(64-bit) Windows 8/8.1 Standard, Pro, or Enterprise

(64-bit) Windows 10

If you are running Windows in any language other than English, period and comma characters may cause some issues with some tools. This can be corrected by contacting Gemvision Technical Support or your Authorized Dealer.

Minimum: 250GB free main hard drive space
The complete CounterSketch® installation will take up 10GB of free space on your Hard Drive. As you begin designing and incrementally saving your work, it will start to take up space quickly, which is why the hard drive sizes above are suggested.

Minimum: 1440×900 Pixels
A 21 inch monitor is a comfortable size for most people, but if you present to a customer who is looking at the screen from a distance, a 24 inch or larger monitor might be more effective. Desktop and laptop monitors vary in display appearance and quality – it’s best to visit a store so you get a feel for the monitor before deciding on a size and resolution.

Windows 7: Microsoft Security Essentials

Windows 8: Microsoft Defender (comes with Windows 8)

Windows 10: Microsoft Defender (comes with Windows 10)

Due to incompatibility issues outside of our control, Gemvision does not recommend the following antivirus programs: Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky, AVG, and Avast.

Choosing to run third-party antivirus software alongside Gemvision software may negatively affect functionality. Updates to antivirus software or changes in virus definitions may stop Gemvision software from launching.

CounterSketch Streaming:

Recommended: A Multiple-Button Mouse with Scroll Wheel

Minimum: A two-button mouse
