What are the minimum system requirements to run Spectronaut™?

Although Spectronaut is developed to use as few resources as possible, the calculations made by the software are still intensive. Spectronaut was optimized for parallel computation and makes use of all CPU cores assigned in the global settings. Parallel computation is synchronized with disc IO so that running no more than one analysis at a time is optimal in terms of overall computation time needed. We recommend the following setup:

Minimum
Operating System:
Windows 10, x64
CPU:
Intel ® Core™ CPU, 2.7 GHz (4 cores) or similar
Hard Drive
200 GB free space
Memory:
16 GB
Software:
.NET 4.7


Recommended
Operating System:
Windows 10 or higher, x64
CPU:Intel ® Core™ i7 4770, 3.4 GHz (octa-core) or similar, or Intel or AMD CPU with 4 or more cores
Hard DriveTB of hard drive space or more (2x data set size). The required temporary storage space scales with the library size and the number of run files being analyzed.
Memory:64 GB or more (16 GB of memory or more (1 precursor in 1 run amounts to ~0.5 KB of RAM)
Software:.NET 4.7 or higher

You can also estimate the RAM (in GB) your analysis will need using the following formula:

 



Where n is the number of precursors in your library and r is the number of DIA runs.
