I'm running SageMath 9.2 on windows (and also tried 9.0 on Ubuntu). My specs are: Intel i5-10600K CPU @ 4.10GHz, 32.0 GB RAM, and a RTX 3060 graphics card.
Or perhaps I simply don't have enough memory--which would be odd considering I can ray trace much more complicated objects on Blender with no trouble.
f = lambda t: (t, t^2, t^3)
t = Tachyon(camera_center=(5,0,4))
t.texture('t0', ambient=0.1, diffuse=0.9, specular=0.1, opacity=1.0, color=(1.0,0,0))
t.light((-20,-20,40), 0.2, (1,1,1))
t.parametric_plot(f, -10, 10,'t', min_depth=20, max_depth=40)
t.save(filename='parametric.png', verbose=0, extra_opts='')
