Minimum System Requirements

The minimum and recommended system specifications for new printer platform/driver solutions have increased dramatically. Sawgrass continually assesses the minimum system requirements needed to run each of its desktop systems. As technology continues to advance for printer platforms, computers, and graphic software, these requirements are more critical than ever for optimum performance. Please consult with your distributor to ensure that you have an adequate computer system to effectively run not only the printer, but your chosen graphic software programs as well.

Through our product development process and testing, we have found the following:

  • Newer printers, graphic design programs and software require more RAM and processor speed than ever before. As a result, the minimum and recommended system specifications have increased.
  • PowerDriver & SubliJet WinProfile (for SubliJet users), ChromaBlast Driver & ChromaBlast WinProfile (for ChromaBlast users), and ArTainium WinProfile (for ArTainium users) are all designed exclusively for Windows OS.
  • SubliJet MacProfile (for SubliJet users), ChromaBlast MacProfile (for ChromaBlast users), and ArTainium MacProfile (for ArTainium users) are all designed exclusively for Macintosh OS X.
  • Additional RAM and/or processor speeds, greater than the minimum recommended values, may be required for large graphic files, higher resolution images and/or for wide format printing.
Sawgrass Technologies minimum and recommended system specifications for whole product solutions:

Each new product has both a well-stated minimum and recommended system specification that take into account the printer and graphic design programs that can/should be used with the system. Sawgrass reserves the right to limit support to customers that use less than the minimum stated requirements.

NOTES 1Only Windows Professional, Business, Enterprise and Ultimate Editions have been tested and approved. Only select drivers for Windows 8 are available.2Only compatible with Intel systems running Macintosh OS 10.6 or later, current with the absolute latest Apple software updates. *Solution using ICC Profiles (embedded into select graphic programs) follow OEM printer driver compatibility. 3Not compatible with PowerDriver V4. 4Not compatible with any PowerDriver.

Effects of using computers and graphics applications that are below the minimum recommended system requirements:

  • Print speeds may be longer and therefore less economical to run
  • Larger graphic files may not print properly or at all
  • The computer may get 'hung up' or "time out' during the processing of the print command
  • Graphic design programs may be much slower to use
  • Print spooling may not work properly because of lack of computer or printer memory capacity
  • Graphics may not print correctly--images may be cut off
  • Longer print times can lead to nozzle drops or banding
