Improper computer configuration or hardware issues will cause CPU performance degradation and affect the user experience, it is recommended to use the CPU-Z tool to check CPU performance before starting scanning.


Install and launch CPU-Z, follow the steps in below figure to get a CPU multi thread performance score. A score of 4000 or more is required.


To use the scanner, you need a graphics card (integrated or discrete) which can support OpenGL4.3 or above.

Use OpenGL Extensions Viewer to check the OpenGL version, if it's lower than 4.3, please update the graphics card driver and check again, If it's still lower than 4.3, it means that the graphic card CAN NOT support the scanner.


Highly recommend to use a NVIDIA1 discrete graphics card for the scanner.

The NVIDIA discrete graphics card should support CUDA10.2 or above.

Use NVIDIA Control Panel to get the CUDA version with follow steps.
