MATLAB 2023 minimum Requirements

MATLAB 2023 minimum Requirements | Planning to dive into the world of MATLAB? Before you download and install the latest version of this powerful mathematical computing software, it’s important to make sure your system meets the minimum requirements.

While MATLAB can run on a wide range of computers, there are certain hardware and software specifications that are essential for ensuring smooth operation and optimal performance. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the minimum requirements for running MATLAB 2023, so you can be sure your system is up to the task.

We’ll cover everything from processors and RAM to graphics cards and operating systems, so you can make an informed decision about whether your current setup is sufficient or if you need to make some upgrades. So, let’s jump in and get started!

Here are the minimum system requirements for MATLAB 2023:

Operating Systems:

  • Windows 10 (64-bit) or 11 (64-bit)
  • macOS 10.15 (Catalina), 11.x (Big Sur), 12.x (Monterey), or 13.x (Ventura)
  • Linux (64-bit):
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x or 8.x (64-bit)
    • CentOS 7.x or 8.x (64-bit)
    • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, 20.04 LTS, 22.04 LTS (64-bit)


  • Minimum: Any Intel or AMD x86-64 processor with two or more cores
  • Recommended: Any Intel or AMD x86-64 processor with four or more cores and AVX2 instruction set support


  • Minimum: 4 GB
  • Recommended: 8 GB


  • 3.7 GB for just MATLAB
  • 5-8 GB for a typical installation
  • 25 GB for an all products installation
  • An SSD is strongly recommended


  • No specific graphics card is required, but a hardware accelerated graphics card supporting OpenGL 3.3 with 1GB GPU memory is recommended.
  • GPU acceleration using Parallel Computing Toolbox requires a GPU that has a compute capability 3.0 or higher.

Additional Notes:

  • A future release of MATLAB will require a processor with AVX2 instruction set support.
  • For Polyspace, 4 GB per core is recommended.
