System Requirements


  • Recommended system: Windows 7 – Windows 8.1, 64-bit.
  • 32-bit versions Windows: Windows Vista – Windows 8.1
  • Windows XP is supported in a separate “Legacy” version of FastRawViewer.
  • Processor with SSE3 support or later (meaning released 2005+):
    • Intel: Pentium 4 Prescott or later; Celeron D or later, any Core processor, Intel Atom.
    • AMD: Athlon 64 or later.
    • The complete list of supported processors is available on
  • Video card with DirectX 9.0 support or later, or with OpenGL 2.1 or later (see below Choice of version: OpenGL or DirectX).

FastRawViewer will work with practically any video card with 3D acceleration support, released 2006+ (users of older cards may experience some problems).


  • Intel-based Mac.
  • Processor with 64-bit support (that’s every Intel Mac, excluding Mac Mini  2006).
  • Mac OS X 10.6 or later.

We recommend a video card with OpenGL 2.1 support (that’s every native Mac video card, that works with OS X 10.6). An OpenGL emulator will be used if such a video card is not present in the system; some of the advanced features of FastRawViewer will take significant time to render.
