Minimum Requirements:

Display

1024 x 768

RAM

4GB (32-bit OS)
8GB (64-bit OS)

Hard Disk

Up to 4GB of available space may be required.

Processor

Desktops: Intel Pentium 4 processor or equivalent (recommended, see discussion below)
Tablets: Intel i3 processor or equivalent.

Using Revu for working with typical Office documents

When using Revu for general administrative documents, a standard, general class computer that meets the above requirements may be used.

Using Revu for working with large sets of engineering documents

When working with large drawing sets (for example, construction project bid sets) in which the PDFs may contain hundreds of large format drawings, it is recommended that workstations have adequate memory and processor resources. A recommended hardware configuration would be 64-bit Windows with an Intel i5 Dual Core 3.2GHz, Quad Core 2.3 GHz or better processor, as well as at least 8 GB of RAM. Revu can run on systems with lower specifications; however, a workstation with these settings will provide the optimal performance.

Using Revu for OCR

When using the OCR functionality of Revu eXtreme edition, a 64-bit operating system is highly recommended for best performance.
