VCV Manual driver version note

In the manual would it be good to have a note for having ‘up to date GPU driver versions’.

There is a good few threads recently and in the past and a driver update is the fix, especially for on board graphics.

VCV Rack is free software, so you may simply download and run the software to see if it works. However, if you are experiencing performance issues, make sure you have at least the following hardware.

  • Operating system: MacOS 10.7+, Windows 7+, or Linux (Ubuntu 16.04+, etc)
  • CPU: Intel/AMD 64-bit processor from ~2011 or later
  • Graphics: Dedicated Nvidia/AMD graphics card from ~2013 or later. Integrated (non-dedicated) graphics such as Intel HD/Iris are not recommended and cause significantly increased CPU usage
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Disk space: 1GB

NOTE: Having the most recent graphics drivers is highly recommended.
