The minimum recommended workstation profile for running MicroStation is:

Processor Intel® or AMD® processor 1.0 GHz or greater. MicroStation is not supported on a CPU that does not support SSE2. MicroStation is not supported on a CPU which does not have AVX instructions.
Memory 4 GB minimum, 16 GB recommended. More memory almost always improves performance, particularly when working with larger models.

Video See the graphics card manufacturer for latest information on DirectX drivers. 512 MB of video RAM or higher is recommended. If insufficient video RAM or no graphics card supported by DirectX can be found, MicroStation attempts to use software emulation.
