→ Minimum: Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon 64.
→ Recommended: Intel Core 2 Duo, AMD Athlon 64 X2, or better.
→ A CPU that has SSE2 support is required.
→ The AxisVM Analytical Engine includes a multi-threaded solver that can take advantage of multi-core CPUs.
→ Minimum: 2 GB for XP O/S, 4 GB for Vista/Windows 7 O/S.
→ Recommended: 4 GB for 32-bit O/S, 8 GB or more for 64-bit O/S.
→ The problem size that can be solved & the solution speed increases considerably with more RAM.
→ Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8 requires more RAM than XP for the operating system itself.
→ 6 GB to install the program.
→ Recommended: 500GB or larger Hard Disk Drive (7200/10000 rpm SATA).
