What are credits?

Credits are used to rent cloud computing on Frame. For example, you need 10 credits for one hour of usage of an Air 4GB system. More powerful systems use more credits per hour.

Frame System RAM CPU GPU Usage Ideal for
Air 4GB 4 GB 1 core - 10 credits per hour General purpose apps:
Office, coding/IDE
Air 8GB 8 GB 1 core - 20 credits per hour General purpose graphics apps:
Photo editing, 2D CAD
Pro 16GB 16 GB 4 cores 1 GPU 100 credits per hour Graphics-intensive apps:
SolidWorks, Creo, video editing
Pro 64GB 64 GB 16 cores 4 GPU 400 credits per hour Rendering & simulation.
Get results up to 10x faster.

Credit usage rate for North America.

Frame is the world's first elastic cloud computer that lets you add more RAM, CPU power or a graphics card with the click of a button. It's never been this easy to switch to a system that fits your needs (available in Standard and Plus plans as the Starter plan supports only the Air 4GB system). Please note that all credits are consumed based on full hour increments of usage.

How does System Switching work?

Imagine your students need to work on a design in their 3D modeling class and then write a report in Word. They can start working on a Pro 16GB system with a dedicated NVIDIA GPU for CAD, and then scale down to the Air 4GB when they're working on their report. Then, when they need ultimate performance (for simulations or rendering in their engineering class), they can crank things up with the Pro 64GB. With 16 CPU cores and 4 NVIDIA GPUs just a click away, they'll never be at a loss for speed.
