View Full Version : NDI Hardware Requirements

I remember seeing a forum thread that was, perhaps, lost during the forum outage last month, that discussed some hardware requirements for NDI capabilities. I seem to recall that there was a specific motherboard or processor requirement that NDI needs. Can anyone speak to those requirements?

NDI requires a CPU with SSSE3 instructions. These instructions started appearing in processors around 2006. All current CPUs have these instructions.

Some of the NDI applications also require AVX instructions, these instructions started appearing around 2011. Most CPUs have these instructions, some low end CPUs might not.

The tool CPU-Z can be used to find out what instructions sets are available on a target computer. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
