  • SSE 4.2
  • POPCNT instruction specifically
  • 16GB of RAM.

The first two are available on CPUs starting from AMD K10 (Phenom) and Intel's Penryn and Nehalem architectures (Core 2 and original Core i5/i7).

Seriously? The old core i7 870 (not a typo) I have in my closet meets the requirements? Adding the watermark for CPUs older than that just seems mean-spirited.

I think there are also some ARM SoCs (now that Windows on ARM is a thing) that don't meet the requirements, and there are too many systems out there with only 8GB of RAM.

😁 I have a MacBook pro with only 2g ram running the newest linux kernel, nouveau and Gnome on Wayland without swap, höhö. Well it runs mostly, it’s enough to stream from plex, tho.
