Windows DPI setting: normal size (96DPI)
The following operating systems are supported in 64bit editions:
Note that GeneSys WILL run on 32bit versions of Windows (and versions of Windows older than 8 and 10), but we no longer recommend doing so.
We do not support AMD CPU systems.
Intel Core 2, Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 clocked at 2.2GHz (per core).
On 64bit operating systems: 8GB RAM (16Gb recommended.) (32bit operating system cannot use more than 4Gb of RAM, regardless of how much is physically fitted.)
Windows Experience Index: We recommend that you use a system which has a Windows Experience Index of at least 3.0 in both the "Graphics" and "Gaming graphics" categories. You can check the score of your system by going to: Control Panel -> Performance Information and Tools.
HDD (hard disk drive) or SSD (solid state drive) with 1GB or more of free space.

All systems that utilize GeneSys (except for the InGenius 3) require a port on the computer for connecting to the darkroom. Your computer must have one of the following ports:
All Syngene Darkroom Systems that utilize GeneSys, communicate with the darkroom camera via USB.
If you have a T:Genius, a USB 3 port is required. All other systems require a Hi-Speed (480 Mbps) USB 2.0 port.
