Stupid question - System Requirements for Running GPlates


I’m looking at using GPlates for some creative projects in the near future, and I’m hoping to find out what requirements are needed to run the program effectively on a computer (CPU, RAM, or anything else that’s applicable). I haven’t been able to find this information, so if someone could tell me where to find it or tell me what the recommended specs are, I would really appreciate it!

The reason you can’t find such requirements is that there are basically none. I think any relatively modern system should probably work.

Thank you! That’s good news! I appreciate you taking the time to respond. :slight_smile:

That’s right, pretty much any modern system will do fine. Also, for GPlates 2.3 you’ll need graphics hardware supporting OpenGL version 2 or above (but that’s ancient, almost 20 years old).
