The requirements listed here are for the latest version of V-Ray for 3ds Max.
Please make sure that your system meets the requirements listed below before installing V-Ray.
Intel 641, AMD64 or compatible processor with SSE4.2 support
Minimum 8 GB RAM, recommended 64 GB RAM
Microsoft® Windows 10 or Windows 11 operating system
Autodesk® 3ds Max
3ds Max® 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 (64-bit)
Required for customers using legacy hardware lock, preferably USB 2.0
Only IPv4 required for distributed rendering is supported. IPv6 is currently not supported.
6.0.0 or later
NVIDIA CUDA with minimum required compute capability 5.22: Maxwell-, Pascal-, Volta-, Turing-, and Ampere-based NVIDIA card(s);
NVIDIA RTX with compute capability 5.22: RTX cards with latest recommended video driver3;
V-Ray Production Denoiser: AMD or NVIDIA GPU supporting OpenCL 1.2;
NVIDIA AI Denoiser: Maxwell-, Pascal-, Volta-, Turing-, and Ampere-based NVIDIA card with latest recommended video driver3
1 – Windows 11 is required for running Intel Alder Lake processors.
2 – CUDA compute capability and card reference
3 – With V-Ray 6, using older drivers (less than 495.xx) on Ampere cards may lead to incorrect render results with RTX. More information on V-Ray GPU is available at Chaos.com.
