Will omniverse apps run on a GTX 1080 system?

Hi. I want to participate in the Omniverse marbles rendering challenge. But I am using a PC with GTX 1080 and nothing shows on the Omniverse create viewport. is there any way I can get Omniverse create to work on my machine?

Hi! I want to participate too with my GTX 980, but reading from the Omniverse System Requirements, it seems an RTX GPU is required.

I can’t think of a worse timing from Nvidia, creating a contest where the prize is an RTX GPU, but where an actual RTX GPU is required to participate in the contest in the first place.
With RTX GPUs sold out everywhere it’s just mind boggling why this contest even exists.

Hey did you check the driver compatibility. I am giving this a go

Exactly !

I installed Omniverse today just to find out that nothing is rendering :-(
I also try the recommended Studio Driver 456.71 but without success.

Too bad because the plugin based ecosystem seems incredible and I love the UI (even if Dear IMGui is a bit weird~sensitive when you scroll or interact with the UI).
It just lacks the support of C# I would say.

I thought we were supposed to have a compatibility layer with the “old” non-RTX cards!?
Like the raytracing falldown in Unreal Engine.

Also, I have some doubts about the support of other platforms (ARM, Mobile, Mac, etc.) if the editor already does not support my (fairly) high-end Windows 10 configuration.

Don’t tell me that a GTX 1080 Ti is already out of date in 2021 :-(

Looks like we are not in the league brother XD. Switching drivers was futile too.
Too bad.

Hi All,

The Min Spec for GPUs for Omniverse Create is a GeForce RTX 2070. You can view all the requirements here: Omniverse Create Requirements — Omniverse Create documentation
