The first, most important and worst requirement is that Snow Leopard needs an Intel processor to work , so all PowerPC based computers are left without a system upgrade, as we mentioned earlier.

Going further in the requirements, we can see that Snow Leopard needs at least 1 GB of RAM (while in its development version the minimum was 512 MB, although it was already recommended to have the GB) and 5 GBs of hard disk space . Of course, an internet connection is also required and a DVD player is needed to install the operating system.

So far we have the minimum requirements to install and run Snow Leopard. But for some features, the requirements increase:

  • For screen sharing functionality, a 128 Kbs connection is required, and a 300 Kbs connection is recommended.
  • In order to play DVDs, a processor at a minimum frequency of 1.6 GHz is required.
  • OpenCL also requires an NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT, 8800 GT, 8800 GTS, 9400M, 9600M GT, GT 120, GT 130, ATI Radeon 4850 or an ATI Radeon 4870 graphics card.

Fortunately, most Macs with an intel processor meet these requirements, although some laptops with integrated Intel graphics cards (such as the previous generation of MacBooks), n or will be able to use OpenCL .
