Ansys Software Compatibility Query

    • saliha.aviation

      Hello Everyone,
      I am currently an incoming postgraduate aerospace engineering student and looking forward to install Ansys student software on my MacBook Pro with M1 Pro chip.

      If any experts out there now, I would want to know that does your current Ansys system requirements are compatible to run this software on Apple silicon chips ?

      And if it happens to be not compatible what alternative laptops would you recommend to use with system specifications that can help efficiently run this software?

      Please advise me on this.

        We can’t recommend one manufacturer over another, but if you Google Laptop for Ansys,
        you should see returns for this.  The above are the Minimum Requirements.

        You can check the following for Platform Support also,..

      To add, some of the Windows emulators sometimes work, but as we don't test these we can't comment further. Use at your own risk.
