Processor and RAM requirements
We’re aware that these requirements may seem scary! So we’ve included some simple guidance for checking them below.
Single Core 1Ghz or Higher
Dual Core 2Ghz or Higher (i3/i5/i7 or AMD equivalent)
Checking your processor and RAM on a Mac
To check your processor speed, you can click the apple icon in your Finder menu and “about this mac”. This will open a popup window with your computer’s processing speed and RAM.
Checking your processor and RAM on a Windows PC
Open Windows 10’s ‘Setting’s app.
Navigate to Settings > System > About.
There will be a heading called “Device specifications.”
Your processor speed is the last number beside “processor” (3.6GHz here)
memory = RAM beside “Installed RAM” (12GB here)
