Access all the memory on your Mac; 64-bit now available

Break memory limits

Stata for Mac can now take advantage of greater processing power and memory. 64-bit computers process larger blocks of information at a time and can directly address more memory than their 32-bit predecessors. Previously, only Stata for Windows and Stata for Unix used 64-bit capabilities, but now Stata for Mac does, too.

For exceptionally large datasets, the more memory you can access, the better. With 64-bit Stata software, you can maximize your 64-bit system's potential and say goodbye to the old 2-GB memory barrier imposed by 32-bit systems. You are limited only by the total amount of memory on your machine.

In addition to accessing more memory, Stata processes larger datasets more efficiently, making 64-bit Stata faster than 32-bit Stata.

For details, see What kind of performance increase can I expect in going from 32-bit to 64-bit Stata? and our list of supported platforms.

64-bit Stata for Mac includes Stata/IC, Stata/SE, and Stata/MP and requires an Intel-based Mac with a 64-bit processor and Mac OS X 10.5.

Existing Stata 10 for Mac users can upgrade for free to 64-bit Stata for Mac by visiting www.stata.com/support/updates/stata10/mac64/.

Stata for Windows and Stata for Unix users, contact us to obtain 64-bit Stata.

Since Stata 12 licenses are not platform specific, all you need is 64-bit hardware and Stata 12 to take advantage of 64-bit Stata.
