Microsoft Reveals Windows 10 VR Specs

Everyone is talking about VR games and videos right now. It seems to be a hot topic for 2017. Oculus and HTC already have headsets on the market, but many are awaiting Microsoft’s HoloLens system which will be natively supported on Windows-based PCs. Microsoft recently announced the hardware specs (listed below) to support native VR on Windows 10 (currently called Windows Holographic). While many analysts thought the requirements would be prohibitive, they’re actually not bad.

  • 4 GB RAM
  • 4 CPU cores (hyperthreading is supported)
  • GPU with DirectX 12 support
  • USB 3.0 support
