Minimum System Requirements

Hardware requirements for displaying and presenting image data are somewhat different.

Display (Client)

For good performance, at least a dual core processor and 2 GiB system memory with hardware accelerated video output is recommended. Direct3D or at least Direct Draw capable hardware with 32 MiB video memory should be available.
AnyDesk will display an image with 1 GiB system memory installed, but the performance will be reduced severely.
Netbooks are usually too slow to provide maximum rendering performance.
On single processor systems, AnyDesk automatically switches to a lower quality (16 bit per pixel) rendering mode to preserve system resources.
Switching AnyDesk to full screen mode is strongly recommended for maximum performance.

Presenting (Host)

Hardware requirements for presenting the desktop image to another location are dependent on the configuration.
To achieve 60 frames per second in normal mode, at least a dual or better a quad core processor with 1 GiB system RAM is recommended. AnyDesk benefits if an Aero desktop scheme (hardware compositing) is enabled in Windows.
With an installed mirror driver on Windows Terminal Server and Windows XP, the hardware requirements are the lowest.
To use the mirror driver on other systems, please check the option "Force Mirror Driver" in the options tab.
AnyDesk will run with a single core processor and as low as 512 MiB system RAM.

A DDR2 or DDR3 memory interface is recommended.
