I need to work on Magento 2 EE and I have installed xamp 3.2.2 on windows 8.1 pro with 8GB RAM. I am on developer mode, cache is disabled and its running too slow, say it Admin login, frontend page load, and also the commands like

php -dmemory_limit=6G bin/magento setup:di:compile

php -dmemory_limit=6G bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy


Please tell what system configuration/hardware is recommended for this case.

1 Answer 1


These are the configurations I have.

RAM : 16Gb

Storage : 256GB SSD

CPU : i7

Graphic Card : 2 GB (i dont think that really matters)

Before I had HDD but i placed SSD and saw significant speed improvements. because Magento does code generation and symlinks so read write operations are faster when we use SSD.
