1.4. Memory Recommendations

A full installation of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition software requires up to 40 GB of available disk space.

Configure your system to provide additional virtual memory equal to the recommended physical RAM that is required to process your design. This additional virtual memory effectively doubles the total effective memory available to process your design.

Note: Peak virtual memory might exceed these recommendations. These recommendations are based on the amount of physical memory required to achieve runtime within 10% of that achieved on hardware with an infinite amount of RAM.
Table 1.  Memory Requirements for Processing DesignsThese requirements are the same for both Windows and Linux installations.
