Parsec Client System Requirements

Parsec is available for any Mac running macOS 10.9+, any PC with this hardware running Windows 7+, or the Raspberry Pi 3.

Machine Type

Parsec will only work on the GPU+ or P5000 machine types.

Parsec Mac Client

If you’re on a Mac, after downloading the application, you’ll need to right-click and open — double clicking will not work because the app is not distributed through the app store.
