    Skylake or above a requirement for D400 series

    DrMaxP

      The D415/D435 specs say that a Skylake CPU is a minimum requirement. Is this true, or will they still work on older generation CPUs?

       

      From the datasheet:

      https://software.intel.com/sites/default/files/Intel_RealSense_Depth_Cam_D400_Series_Datasheet.pdf

       

      Minimum System Requirements

           • 6th Generation Intel® Processors (Skylake) and above.

           • Ubuntu*16.04/Windows*10

       

      Here we see similar info:

      System Requirements for the Intel® RealSense™ Depth Camera D400 Series

       

      The Intel® RealSense™ Depth Camera D400 Series are validated to work with the hardware and software listed below.

      Hardware

      Platforms with 6th Generation Intel® Processors (Skylake) and above.

      Operating system

      • Linux*
      • Ubuntu* 16.04
      • Windows® 10

      Connecting the D400 Series cameras to any other platform is not supported.

      NB this suggests it's a testing / validation issue, not a hard requirement. (I did see this on yet another min spec page, but can't find that again).
