Posted on Saturday, Aug 06 2005 @ 11:21 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
We already reported about some of the minimum requirements of Windows Vista a few weeks ago, but today Microsoft disclosed some additional information regarding the graphics card requirements:
"Windows Vista provides the best possible user experience allowed by the graphics capabilities of each computer," a Microsoft spokeswoman said in an e-mail to Ziff Davis Internet. "As graphics support is still being finalized, customers who plan to purchase new PCs should consider specifying graphics cards with AGP or PCI Express interfaces, which are most easily upgraded. For Aero effects video graphics cards should support: DirectX 9 with an LDDM [Longhorn Display Driver Model] driver, 32 bpp [bits per pixel] color depth, and 64MB of graphics RAM."
