Autodesk Flame Hardware Recommendations

Processor

Autodesk Flame Family certified processors as of May 2022.

HP Z8 G4 workstation: Dual Intel Xeon Gold 6226R | 16 cores @ 2.9 GHz

Lenovo Thinkstation P620 workstation: AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3975WX | 32-Core 3.5Ghz

Graphics

Autodesk Flame Family certified graphics as of May 2022.

NVIDIA Quadro RTX A5000 24GB or
NVIDIA Quadro RTX A6000 48GB

Optional: Secondary NVIDIA Quadro Graphics

Note by Autodesk about NVLink Bridge for dual graphics cards:
Flame Family products do not use NVLink. Dual GPU configurations allow main GPU for interactive and second GPU dedicated for Background Reactor. Note that Background Reactor can also be used on single GPU configurations, but in this case, performance may vary since you are sharing the GPU for both interactive and background rendering.

Storage

CentOS Linux and Flame: 1x NVMe SSD (typically 500GB)

Flame Projects: 1x NVMe SSD [2500MB/s] or 2x NVMe SSD in RAID0 [4000MB/s] for performance (tyically 2TB to 8TB)

Optional Dual-Boot: 1x NVMe SSD for Windows

Memory

Autodesk Flame Family certified memory configuration as of May 2022.
