Microsoft: Windows 10 VR headsets will not need high-end systems

Posted on Tuesday, November 22 2016 @ 16:54:34 CET by

Microsoft has shared a bit more details about the system requirements for the upcoming virtual reality headsets that will be launched alongside the Creators Update for Windows 10. Various partners are working on headsets, which will be available for as low as $229.

Looking at the target system specifications for the Windows Holographic First Run, which is present in the new Windows 10 Insider builds, I assume Microsoft isn't really targeting hardcore gaming applications but is instead focusing on content creation, casual gaming and some other tasks.
In the latest test builds of Windows 10, Microsoft is now including a "Windows Holographic First Run" application that tests a machine to ensure it’s compatible. I’ve tested a variety of machines, and it appears that Microsoft’s minimum requirements are pretty basic:

  • 4GB of RAM
  • USB 3.0 port
  • A graphics card with DirectX 12 support
  • 4 CPU cores, including dual-core processors with hyperthreading
  • More detail at The Verge.
