Some of the required specs for Windows 10 VR were revealed last month and now the full list is available. Based on Microsoft’s announcement, VR headsets for the desktop OS will work with fairly inexpensive systems. Individual apps and games will have different requirements.
Here’s the list of minimum specs:
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
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
Microsoft and Intel came up with the specs together. They’re working together on augmented reality for Windows 10 and the Windows Holographic shell is going to work with Project Alloy, a VR headset unveiled by Intel earlier this year.
