Render pipeline compatibility
Projects made using HDRP are not compatible with the Universal Render Pipeline (URP) or the Built-in Render Pipeline. Before you start development, you must decide which render pipeline to use in your Project. For information on choosing a render pipeline, see the Render Pipelines section of the Unity Manual.
Unity Player system requirements
This section describes the HDRP package’s target platform requirements. For platforms or use cases not covered in this section, general system requirements for the Unity Player apply.
For more information, see System requirements for Unity.
HRDP is only compatible with the following platforms:
- Windows and Windows Store, with DirectX 11 or DirectX 12 and Shader Model 5.0
- Modern consoles (Sony PS4 and Microsoft Xbox One)
- MacOS (minimum version 10.13) using Metal graphics
- Linux and Windows platforms with Vulkan
Note: HDRP only works on these platforms if the device used supports Compute Shaders. HDRP does not support OpenGL or OpenGL ES devices.
To use ray tracing in HDRP, there are hardware requirements you must meet. For information on these requirements, see Getting started with ray tracing.
