FBI : Minimum requirement

I got a Dell vostro laptop has basic configuration like this : 

- CPU : core i5

- RAM : 4GB

- Hard driver : HDD 500GB.

I set up PBI, when it works, I have to take 5 minutes for 1 action. So I think I should buy a new one, and I want to ask about laptop configuration is needed for PBI working? Minimum requirement  for laptop configuration : RAM, Hard driver, CPU, screen driver?

Re: FBI : Minimum requirement for Computer configuration

Hi @hoandatamaker,

 

Please refer to #minimum-requirements for details. 64-bit Win 10 would be a good choice. I would suggest you optimize your data model. Your computer seems powerful enough.

Re: FBI : Minimum requirement for Computer configuration

Hi @hoandatamaker,

 

This configuration is cool. Since you have a large dataset, more RAM would be great if possible. BUT the point is the dataset is very large. The new computer might not reduce the time from 5 minutes to seconds. I would suggest optimizing the data model at the same time.

1. Try Direct Query instead of Import.

2. Delete unused columns.

3. Break a one-step formula to smaller steps.

 

Best Regards!

Re: FBI : Minimum requirement for Computer configuration

Hi @v-jiascu-msft,

 

Thanks alot for your suggestion, my computer seems powerful enough, but maybe  my database has more than 11 milion, so it works too slow ( I had to take 5 minutes ). So how is your idea if I buy a new one with this configuration:

- RAM: 8GB

- Hard driver: SSD 256GB 

- systeam type: 64bit windows 10.

- processor: core i7 0.27Ghz.

So when I upload database, it can work better?
