Operating System

Spotlight beta is only available on Windows. Supported versions are:

  • Windows 11
  • Windows 10
  • Windows 7 SP 1
  • Windows Server 2019
  • Windows Server 2016

We expect the post-beta release to support Mac, though GPU acceleration will only be available on Windows due its unique support of NVIDIA GPUs.


Spotlight is resource intensive. Due to the significant acceleration provided, an NVIDIA GPU is strongly recommended. Access to one will likely affect admission to the beta program. 6 GB of VRAM is minimum, 12-16 GB is recommended, greater than 16 GB is optimal.

Spotlight is available in two performance modes: Fast and Accurate. Fast uses a lighter-weight model, Accurate uses the full model. Fast can offer acceptable performance on a CPU, though an NVIDIA GPU is recommended for both models.
