Is my machine compatible with Salad?
Plus sign
GPU
Salad supports most dedicated graphics cards from recent product generations that possess at least 2 GB of VRAM. This means that GTX 1000-series NVIDIA GPUs (or greater) and R9 300-series AMD GPUs (or greater) should work, though some GPUs in either category may not be supported due to insufficient core power.

Examples of supported GPUs:
• GTX 1650
• RTX 3070
• Radeon RX 470
• Radeon RX 6700xt

CPU
Salad supports most 64-bit x86 CPUs produced within the past decade, provided that they meet our CPU cache requirements of 2 MB of CPU L3 cache per CPU core. If you are unsure about the size of your CPU cache, try looking up your CPU model online and reading the manufacturer's specs.

In order to operate with CPU Mining mode enabled, Salad also requires a minimum of 3 GB of installed system RAM, with at least 2.3 GB of that RAM to be free at any given time. We recommend having at least 4-6 GB installed to use CPU Mining on Salad.

Examples of supported CPUs:
• Intel Core i5 8300H
• Intel Core i7 11700k
• AMD Ryzen 5 4600u
• AMD Ryzen 7 5800x
Can Salad affect my PC?
Plus sign
Salad won’t tax your hardware any more than playing your favorite AAA game title would. Consumer graphics processing units (a.k.a. "graphics cards" or GPUs) and central processing units (CPUs) are designed to run at peak performance 24/7.

With proper physical maintenance, using Salad should never adversely affect your PC. If you still have doubts, feel free to check out this article on whether mining will damage your GPU (spoiler: it won’t), or read this one about running Salad on your CPU.

We recommend that all Salad Chefs keep their corners of the Kitchen tidy to ensure the best performance. You should regularly clean your gaming PC and ensure adequate airflow, as dust build-up and poor access to fresh air are the primary causes of overheating.

Salad will never harm your gaming PC or spoil your privacy. If your antivirus software has blocked Salad, it is likely because the third-party cryptomining libraries we use under the hood are often mistaken for malicious software, despite being shared or otherwise trustworthy open-source apps.
