Microsoft announces new system requirements for Windows 10

Microsoft announces new system requirements for Windows 10

Starting with Windows 10, Microsoft will provide its OS as a service, which means that there will be no new versions of Windows. Instead users will get large updates once a year or more frequently that will add new features and functionality to the existing OS. On July 29 this year Microsoft will release one such major update called Windows 10 Anniversary Edition.

Unfortunately for some users Windows 10 Anniversary Edition will come with higher system requirements compared to Windows 10. True, the system requirements changes are nothing major but they are there – Windows 10 Anniversary Edition will need at least 2 GB of RAM to run properly. As a comparison Windows 10 32-bit needs just 1 GB of RAM to run. The free hard drive space remains the same – 16 GB for 32-bit versions of Windows 10 and 20 GB for 64-bit versions of the same OS. Users of Windows 10 Mobile have some more luck – now a device, which uses Windows 10, can have a display size of 7 inches, down from 8 inches before, while the upper limit goes from 7.99 inches to 9 inches. In addition the mobile OS will support resolutions from 800 x 480 to 2560 x 1440 pixels, which will give users and manufacturers more flexibility.

Windows 10 Anniversary Edition comes out on July 29, when it is going to be one year since the launch of Windows 10. Of course, the update will bring new features, apart from this increase in the hardware requirements, and they better be worth it.
