processor speed for Solidworks 2021


I am buying a licence of Solidworks 2021 and I have a computer with an intel processor having a speed of 3 GHz. The Solidworks site says that the spec for this version is 3.3 GHz+. The rest of my PC specification meets the Solidworks criteria. Has anybody loaded V 2021 on their old PC and tried to see if it struggles with the hardware spec for previous versions?
