KeyShot is designed to run fast on the most basic hardware configurations or the most powerful of systems to take full advantage of all CPU cores available and scale performance linearly. To get started, here are the minimum recommendations and system requirements for the latest version of KeyShot.
2GB Disk Space
Dual core CPU1, 2
OpenGL 2.0 capable system3
1024 x 768 resolution or higher
Internet connection (to activate product)
Windows 8 or 10
Windows Server 2012 and above
Intel® Core 2 or AMD Athlon® 64 processor
Apple OS X
macOS 10.13 High Sierra or higher
Intel Core 2 Duo with SSSE3 or higher
 KeyShot will utilize all available CPU cores. Therefore, more CPU cores/threads will produce faster rendering times.
 CPU denoiser in KeyShot 9 requires SSE 4.1
 While KeyShot doesn’t require GPU for rendering, certain UI elements in KeyShot require a GPU with support for OpenGL 2.0 and up.
