Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

What are Mathematica 10.0–10.3 system requirements?

Hardware Specifications

  • Processor: Intel Pentium IV 2.4 GHz or equivalent
  • Disk Space: 8.8 GB
  • System Memory (RAM): 2 GB+ recommended
  • Internet Access: Required in order to use online data sources from the Wolfram Knowledgebase.
  • GPU: To use Mathematica’s built-in GPU computing capabilities, you’ll need a dual-precision graphics card that supports OpenCL or CUDA, such as many cards from NVIDIA, AMD, and others.

Mathematica 10 has been fully tested on the Linux distributions listed above. On new Linux distributions, additional compatibility libraries may need to be installed. It is likely that Mathematica will run successfully on other distributions based on the Linux kernel 2.6 or later.

Mathematica supports an X Window System front end, and since Version 7 has used the Qt application framework for its user interface—the same used by the major Linux desktop environment KDE. Regular tests are run on both enterprise and popular open-source Linux distributions.

Additional Notes:
For assistance migrating your Mathematica installation to a new computer, contact customer service »
To use the C compilation feature in Mathematica, a C compiler is required to be present.
