System Requirements

As of February 2019, here are the recommended system requirements for Adobe Premiere Pro CC:

  • 64-bit multicore processor
  • 64-bit OS
    • Microsoft Windows 7 with Service Pack 1, Windows 8, or Windows 10
    • MacOS X v10.10, v10.11 or v10.12
  • 8GB of RAM minimum (16GB recommended)
  • 8GB of available HDD space
  • 1280×800 display

Note that these are for both Windows and Mac. You will also need additional HDD space–apart from the 8GB that the program itself will occupy–for the installer and the installation process; and you cannot install the program on a removable flash storage device. There is also a list of Adobe-recommended GPU cards on the company’s website; including one of them in your machine is an option that facilitates efficient GPU-accelerated performance. Additionally, a sound card that can work with ASIO protocol or a Microsoft Windows Driver Model is also a necessity for Windows PCs.

On top of hardware specifications, you will also need an Internet connection–and an Adobe ID–to be able to register and activate the software, validate your subscription to the service, and access other online services related to Premiere Pro CC.
