Cummins INSITE remains one of the most demanding diagnostic programs out there. If you are going to run INSITE on an older computer with you may experience extreme delays and long load times as it requires a powerful processor and plenty of RAM. The recommended computer specs for the program are some of the highest in the industry so if you want your diagnostic laptop to run smoothly it’s important to meet or exceed the minimum requirements, or purchase a complete diagnostic laptop kit that already comes with a high performance computer.
Officially the recommended required computer specifications from Cummins are:
- Intel i5 Processor
- Windows 10 (64-bit)
- 8GB+ RAM
- 6GB of available hard drive space.
However, we recommend that you go beyond those recommendations and get a higher performance computer.
For the absolute best speeds and highest performance possible with Cummins Insite, try the following computer specifications:
- Intel i7 Processor
- Windows 10 (64-bit)
- 16GB of RAM
- Solid State Hard Drive
A laptop with the components listed above will be better in every measurable way. Cummins Insite will be able to open up to 80% faster on this computer. Generally speaking, older more outdated computers can take up to 3-5 minutes to open up Cummins Insite.
Another important thing to note, since Cummins Insite requires a lot of power to run properly, trying to run Cummins Insite on a lower power/old computer will often cause the program to freeze or experience glitches.
We could go on and on about the benefits of putting your Cummins Insite on a high performance computer but it’s not something most shop owners or technicians understand until they’ve experienced it first hand. Sitting and staring at a blank screen while you wait for it to open is not only infuriating, but it also reduces your shop’s productivity and efficiency. Like they say, “time is money”.
If you are ready to take the next step and purchase an Insite license for your shop or fleet, you can do that here.
