is it ideal to use a 4gb ram for 10M rows of data(csv).

Hi, Can someone suggest hardware requirements to run 10M rows of data by importing it into desktop. Currently, I have 4Gb RAM and was wondering if that would be enough. 

Thanks

Hi @hari_!

 

You should be able to import this amount of data without problems. 

There are some optimization techniques which improve drastically the data compression:

Hi @hari_,

 

If you don't have many columns, you should run 10M rows of data by importing it into desktop, if you have many columns, I'm afraid that may cause an error for memory limit.

 

In addition, large data will affect the performance in Power BI Desktop. You could have a good look at this blog about it.
