Windows requirements

  • Ultra Fractal 6 is designed to run on any computer with Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista or XP, but it works best with Windows 10. The new High DPI support requires Windows 10 or Windows 8.1.
  • Ultra Fractal will run on any CPU that works with Windows, but Intel Core i7 or i5 processors are recommended for best performance. Ultra Fractal will seamlessly take advantage of multi-core and multi-processor systems.
  • The OpenGL graphics acceleration in Ultra Fractal 6 works with almost any graphics card. If the card is not supported, OpenGL acceleration is turned off automatically.
  • A monitor resolution of at least 1920 x 1200 pixels (HD) is recommended to work comfortably. High DPI (4K/5K) monitors are highly recommended to take advantage of the high resolution support in Ultra Fractal 6. This lets you view your fractals in almost print-like resolution on the screen.
  • On 64-bit systems, 4 GB of memory (RAM) is recommended; 2 GB on 32-bit systems and 1 GB for Windows XP. More memory will enable you to create larger fractals with more layers. If you want to create large flame fractals, or if you want to render large images or animations with motion blur, more memory is always better.
  • Installing Ultra Fractal on your hard disk takes less than 20 MB, but you will want to reserve extra space to store fractals and rendered images. When rendering animations, you need enough free disk space for temporary data, depending on the length and size of the animation.

macOS requirements

  • Ultra Fractal 6 runs on all macOS versions since Mac OS X 10.8. It's recommended to use macOS 10.12 (Sierra) or higher. Use macOS 10.14 (Mojave) or 10.15 (Catalina) for Dark Mode support.
  • An Intel processor is required (no PowerPC). Ultra Fractal will seamlessly take advantage of multi-core and multi-processor systems, so quad-core i5 or i7 CPUs are recommended.
  • A Retina monitor is highly recommended to take advantage of the high resolution support in Ultra Fractal 6. This lets you view your fractals in almost print-like resolution on the screen.
  • At least 2 GB of memory (RAM) is required, 4 GB or more is recommended.
  • Installing Ultra Fractal on your hard disk takes less than 20 MB, but you will want to reserve extra space to store fractals and rendered images.

Linux

No native Linux version is planned. You can run the Windows version of Ultra Fractal on Linux with VMware or WINE.
