What are the PC requirements for the uScopeMXII?
The uScope Navigator software is a Windows application that requires one of the following:
In general, the PC used to run the uScope Navigator software must have the following capabilities:
We have found that Intel CPUs that are multi-core with hyper-threading work quite well since the software can take advantage of multiple execution threads. We have had good luck with the Intel Core i7-4790K.
Refer to https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html for CPU benchmark comparisons.
If you wish to use the software with a 4K monitor, we strongly recommend a high-performance video card like the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080.
Our test computers are outfitted with solid state drives (SSDs) which significantly improve the disk read/write performance. We have had very good luck with the Samsung 850 Pro SSD.
If the uScope whole slide scanner does not work with your PC's USB3 ports, you may wish to consider a third-party USB 2.0 plug-in card. We have had very good luck with the Startech 4-Port PCI Express USB 2.0 Card (part number PEXUSB4DP). This card is available from Amazon.com for a very reasonable price.
