Jd Pc Computer Speed

I bought JD and assembled him. He's a fantastic humanoid! Now I need to buy a PC computer. When matching the specs quoted below, the computer speed is 1.7gHz (with 2.7 Turbo boost). Is this too slow?


System Performance ARC was designed to be very efficient and run on lower scale PC's. This does not mean that we recommend low scale PC's, even though the software will run. The recommended CPU is an Intel i5 equivalent with 4GB of RAM and Windows 8.1. The 3D designer and 3D instruction interface will use video hardware acceleration, if available. Screen Resolution The minimum screen resolution for ezbuilder is 1024x768. Ideally, the best resolution for ezbuilder is 1920x1080.



Upgrade to ARC Pro

Your robot can be more than a simple automated machine with the power of ARC Pro!
