4 GB or higher NVIDIA graphics card with CUDA compute capability (5.0 or higher) required when working with point cloud classification.
8 GB or higher graphics card (for example, NVIDIA Quadro P4000) recommended when working with Aerial Photogrammetry, Mobile Mapping, and Scanning modules.
12GB or higher is recommended for Deep Learning-Based Point Cloud Classification.

Note: If you are using a laptop computer with both an integrated (on-board) graphics card and a discrete NVIDIA graphics card enabled via Optimus technology, your computer must allow you to select to disable the integrated graphics card and use only the discreet graphics card when working with point cloud data. See "Disabling a laptop integrated graphics card" in the "Important Notes" topic in the TBC Help.

Note: It is critical to maintain updates to graphics driver(s) if working with point data clouds.

Whether your computer has one or multiple graphics cards installed, you must ensure each has been updated with the latest driver provided by the card's manufacturer. The best way to determine if your driver needs to be updated and, if so, perform the update is to visit the card manufacturer's website. For more information, see "Update and Configure Your Graphics/Video Driver" in the online Help.

(If, instead, you decide to update your driver using the Windows Device Manager and the "Search automatically" option, the program may suggest using a Microsoft-approved WHQL version of the driver. However, to ensure you have the latest bug fixes and new features for your graphics card, it is recommended that you use the latest manufacturer version instead.)
