Windows requirements

  • Ultra Fractal 5 is designed to run on any computer with Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, 2008, 2003, or 2000. Ultra Fractal 5 works best with Windows 10, 8, 7 or Vista.
  • Ultra Fractal will run on any CPU that works with Windows, but Intel Core i7 or i5 processors are recommended for best performance. Ultra Fractal 5 will seamlessly take advantage of multi-core and multi-processor systems.
  • There are no special requirements for the video card. Ultra Fractal does not use 3D acceleration. A resolution of 1024x768 pixels or better is recommended to work comfortably. It helps to have two monitors, so you can keep the main window on one monitor and the tool windows on another.
  • On Windows 10, 8, 7 or Vista, at least 2 GB of memory (RAM) is recommended. Windows XP requires 512 MB. More memory will enable you to create larger fractals with more layers. If you want to create large flame fractals, or if you want to render large images or animations with motion blur, more memory is always better.
  • Installing Ultra Fractal on your hard disk takes less than 10 MB, but you will want to reserve extra space to store fractals and rendered images. When rendering animations, you need enough free disk space for temporary data, depending on the length and size of the animation.

Mac OS X requirements

  • Ultra Fractal 5.5 for Mac runs on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9. 10.8, 10.7, 10.6 or 10.5.
  • An Intel processor is required (no PowerPC). Ultra Fractal will seamlessly take advantage of multi-core and multi-processor systems, so quad-core i5 or i7 CPUs are recommended.
  • At least 2 GB of memory (RAM) is required, 4 GB or more is recommended.
  • Installing Ultra Fractal on your hard disk takes less than 20 MB, but you will want to reserve extra space to store fractals and rendered images.

Linux
