System requirements

Matrox RT.X100 Xtreme Pro requires the following minimum system configuration:

  • Pentium 4 at 2.2 GHz, or AMD Athlon XP 1500+.
  • 1 GB physical memory (RAM).

  • At least 2.5 GB of free space to install all included software.
  • Separate hard drive for A/V content.
  • Video camera or VCR.

Note:  Realtime DV output requires the recommended system configuration listed below. Certain complex effects, or combinations of effects, require a more powerful system to prevent dropped frames during playback. Because some of the Matrox realtime effects are CPU-based, upgrading to a more powerful CPU might allow you to combine more of these effects.

Important  It is recommended that you use a computer equipped with a power supply of at least 300 watts. Although RT.X100 Xtreme Pro does not consume much power, fully configured recommended systems with a high-end graphics card (such as Matrox Parhelia), two or three hard drives, and a powerful CPU, will push the limits of a 250-watt power supply.
