Specification for running energy simulation

Hi all,

My computer is taking way too long to run the energy simulation and crashes frequently. It takes more than 4 hours to run a simulation for 40 simple rooms. Is this normal?

I am considering to upgrade my desktop so as to reduce the time for the simulation. May I ask whether RAM or CPU is the most important thing for running the energy simulation? Anyone can advise me if there is any suggested specification for running energyplus simulation?

Thanks a lot.


Hi @Ivanita,
