2.1.1 Hardware requirements

The compiler needs at least one of the following processors:

An Intel 80386 or higher processor. A coprocessor is not required, although it will slow down your program’s performance if you do floating point calculations without a coprocessor, since emulation will be used.
An AMD64 or EMT64 processor.
A PowerPC processor. (32 or 64 bit)
A SPARC processor
An ARM processor (32 or 64 bit).
Older FPC versions exist for the motorola 68000 processor, but these are no longer maintained.

Memory and disk requirements:

The memory and disk requirements vary from platform to platform. One should count in the order of 100 megabytes for a basic installation; 2 Gigabytes should be counted if you want to recompile the compiler and all basic packages.
