In general, Arnold is going to work on pretty much any 64-bit system where Houdini, Maya, Cinema 4D, 3ds Max, Katana, or Softimage works. However, there are some minimum OS requirements:

  • OSX 10.8 or later
  • Windows 7 or later, with the Visual Studio 2015 redistributable
  • Linux with at least glibc 2.12 and libstdc++ 3.4.13 (gcc 4.4.7). This is equivalent to RHEL/CentOS 6
  • CPUs need to support the SSE4.1 instruction set

Other than that, Arnold works on Intel and AMD processors, and has no graphic card or GPU requirements, since Arnold is a CPU-based renderer.

This is an FAQ, so I'm asking and answering.
