Required Processor : 1 gigahertz (Ghz) or faster x86- or x64-bit processor
with SSE2 instruction set
Required Operating System : Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2,
or Windows Server 2012; Mac: OS X v.10.6
Required Memory : 1 GB RAM (32 bit); 2 GB RAM (64 bit)
Required Hard Disk Space : 3.0 GB available
Required Display : Graphics hardware acceleration requires a DirectX 10
graphics card and 1024 x 576 resolution
Required .NET Version : 3.5, 4.0, or 4.5
Multi-touch : A touch-enabled device is required to use any multi-touch
functionality. However, all features and functionality are
always available by using a keyboard, mouse, or other standard
or accessible input device. Note that new touch features are
optimised for use with Windows 8.
Additional System Requirements : Some functionality may vary, based on the system configuration.
Some features may require additional or advanced hardware or
Note: System requirements are rounded up to the nearest 0.5 GB, to be
conservative. For example, if we measure an application’s required hard disk
space to be 1.99 GB, we recommend 2.5 GB of disk space. Our hard disk system
requirements are intentionally larger than the actual disk space usage of the software.
A graphics processor helps increase the performance of certain features, such as
drawing tables in Excel 2013 or transitions, animations, and video integration in
PowerPoint 2013. Use of a graphics processor with Office 2013 requires a Microsoft
DirectX 10-compliant graphics processor that has 64 MB of video memory. These processors
were widely available in 2007. Most computers that are available today include a graphics
processor that meets or exceeds this standard. However, if you or your users do not have a
graphics processor, you can still run Office 2013.
