Other Information

We recommend at least a dual-core processor with 4GB of available memory for running SIMULATE-5.

To get the full benefit of running SIMULATE-5 in parallel mode, we recommend a quad-core 64-bit machine with at least 8 GB of memory.  OpenMP parallelization requires Intel or AMD processor with multiple cores.
