Given how slow the website is and how impatient customers are I thought I should flag this:

Notice recommended RAM: 6GB+.

Has anyone tested L5 with the minimum 2GB RAM? (Especially interested in Mac.)

Yes, it is slow. Thanks for this info!

Here's another one people need to be aware of:

Intel i3 (first gen) with 2gb of ram.

Its about the same I think... Maybe slightly slower. I've been contemplating upgrading the ram for a while... perhaps its time :)

Hi!

Are there some changes in the minimum system requirements in Logos 5 compared to Logos 4.6.? I couldn't find the Logos 4 specs anymore.

My laptop's video card has just 256MB of RAM (ATI Mobility Radeon HD3470) that is below the Logos 5 minimum requirements. It runs Logos 4 OK. Will it run Logos 5? (Other specs of my laptop exceeds the minimum requirements easily).

I'm running it with 2 GB RAM on my Acer Extensa (single-core Intel Celeron, 2.2 GHz) under Win 7 32bit. I haven't thoroughly tested/benchmarked it, but it feels snappier than L4 4.6. For me it's fast enough, but I'm not a heavy user.

The Mac guys are full of praise, as far as I could see through the various forums.

The minimum requirements contain a typo (it should be "512MB", not "2512MB"). It also seems a little high to me; there really shouldn't be any problem using a 256MB card. On my system right now, running Logos 5 and several other applications, the total video memory used is 131MB, jumping up to 170MB if I open Bible Facts to a map. I think if your computer ran Logos 4 well, it shouldn't have any problems running Logos 5.

Can I suggest your best upgrade would be a solid state hard drive. You can have a blazing processor but the bottleneck is always the HD.

Has anyone tried L5 on XP? Maybe the Installer checks Windows version before starting....

I'm actually wondering if L actually used DX10 let alone DX11?? There is no hard graphics that would require DX10 let alone DX11 (which is still fairly new technology).  1GB of RAM is a lot on graphics cards esp on low end machines.

 

They also should state that if you have more than 4GB of ram, you need 64bit windows.

I little slower, but not dramatically slow and unusable. I have L5 on an ASUS 1015PN Atom processor with 2GB RAM w/o SSD (I have a standard HDD on the netbook).

Oh. I'm on W7 32bit

L5 will not run on XP.

There are checks in place to prevent downloads and installations being attempted
