When my computer was custom made, the store installed a AMD 750 MHZ K7 Duron processor. This was done in January 2001.

I am reviewing new software for the computer and the software manufacturer's recommended system requirements is for a Pentium II or better CPU.

Is the AMD 750 MHZ Duron Processor sufficient to run this type of software?

I look forward to any information you can provide.

G'day Jim, and welcome to the forum.

Sure, an AMD Duron running at 750 MHz will be plenty good enough to run that particular software. It can be compared to a Pentium III, some of which run at around 733 MHz.

It should work fine, just make sure you've got enough RAM and hard disk space available (as per the manufacturers' requirements).

Yes, in your case the CPU is more than suffiicient for the task at hand based on the manufacturer's specifications.

Cheers,

Logan
