It’s time to upgrade to your PC if you want to get into virtual-reality. Windows just unveiled its official minimum specifications for PC that’ll run Windows 10 VR headsets.



The minimum specs listed assure that it can support Windows 10 VR experiences, however, some games and apps may need more depending on their demand.

  • 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 or HDMI 2.0 or DP 1.3+ with 2880×1440 @ 90 Hz
  • Storage: 100GB and up SSD (preferred) or HDD
  • USB: USB 3.0 Type-A or USB 3.1 Type-C port with DisplayPort Alternate Mode
  • Bluetooth: Bluetooth 4.0 for accessories

Microsoft still isn’t spilling beans what Windows 10 VR will be like or how it will differ to the HoloLens platform. But there will be support for 360-degree video in the Movie & TV app, and WebVR support through Microsoft Edge. We’ll see more on the Windows 10 VR experience perhaps early next year.
