The PC is a critical component in the dyno setup. It records all data, displays it in the graphs and gauges, and controls the brake(s), all in real time. It needs to be able to keep up.
You can check the so-called CPU Mark number for your CPU (google CPU Benchmark <your CPU>). For new PCs a number above 10.000 is recommended, although it will run at 5.000 as well.
Minimum recommended CPU is:
Intel i5 @ 3ghz+
AMD quad core @ 3.5ghz+
If your CPU has less than 4 cores it may struggle to run YourDyno.
YourDyno is not very memory intensive and does not require a good graphics card. The CPU is what matters.
Windows 10 and Windows 11 are recommended. Windows 7 works too, but you need to manually install the drivers. Windows 8/8.1 is not a good OS in general, but it does work with YourDyno.
For downloading of the latest drivers and software they can be found on the downloads page.

Hi there. Building a PC for the Dyno, I see 8 core CPU and 4 core is recommended. I wanted to know if the program utilizes more cores well or if I am better of with fewer cores but more powerful ones.
Thanks a lot

Powerful cores are more important than many cores. Most of the application is single threaded. Some plugins and gauge handling are running different threads.
