Microsoft Reveals Windows 10 VR Minimum Specs

Need at least Intel i5 to start with.

Posted By | On 09th, Dec. 2016 Under News

As we get closer and closer to the eventual release of the VR devices that can be run on Windows 10, we’re getting more information about what to expect when they are available. Among the details we can expect are the companies that are going to be making VR headsets.

We found out back in October that Lenovo, Acer and other firms were going to be making these headsets and that they would cost an affordable $299. Now we have the minimum requirements when it comes to the kind of computers that will have to come along with these headsets.

We have gathered up the specs, starting with the fact that you’re going to need a computer that has an Intel i5 processor. That’s not a top of the line computer, but there are a few on the market that come in under that. Check out the rest of the minimum specs below.

  • CPU: Intel Mobile Core i5 (e.g. 7200U) Dual-Core with Hyperthreading equivalent
  • GPU: Integrated Intel® HD Graphics 620 (GT2) equivalent or greater DX12 API Capable GPU
  • RAM: 8GB+ Dual Channel required for integrated Graphics
  • HDMI: HDMI 1.4 with 2880×1440 @ 60 Hz
  • HDMI 2.0 or DP 1.3+ with 2880×1440 @ 90 Hz
  • HDD: 100GB+ SSD (Preferred) / HDD
  • USB: USB 3.0 Type-A or USB 3.1 Type-C Port with DisplayPort Alternate Mode
  • Bluetooth: Bluetooth 4.0 for accessories

      You should email MS and tell them. I’m sure that despite the millions in R&D expenses, they could really use some armchair engineer’s input.

      They also need a new designer as it kinda looks similar to another VR system on the market. You know, kinda… I bet you cant guess who

    • Luke Skywalker

      Microsoft aren’t the ones designing 3rd party headsets. you should take that observation up with the 3rd party manufacturers like hp, asus, etc.

    • Luke Skywalker

      i think you’re jumping the gun there buddy. I believe I made an observation about the minimum specifications and asked a question. the question is based on what other VR manufacturers are doing which is low latency coupled with high framerates (90fps and above) to reduce motion sickness.
      so please show where I am armchair engineering.
