Windows Holographic Minimum PC Specs Revealed in Shell Setup

Microsoft is going to bring VR to all Windows 10 PC, and while it made it sure that PCs won’t need to have high end configuration, and everything will be handled by the VR hardware, the minimum configuration for PCs wasn’t revealed, until now.

Paul Thurrott found this during the Shell Setup process, has more info on this. Below are the minimum specs needed

  • 4GB of RAM
  • USB 3.0
  • DirectX 12
  • a CPU with 4 cores
  • 1GB of free storage
  • and 1.5m x 2m of open space.
  • You have options to add tracking sensors


According to the screenshots, looks like PCs with older configuration will also be able to support VR if it supports Windows 10, which sounds exciting, but lets stay calm until it arrives.

The point about free space is also important. You need to have some clearance around, which is obvious, and it should be 1.5m x 2m which is decent enough for most of the living rooms.


Windows 10 VR capability is still unknown, and it still had to test waters in consumer market, and business as well, but it does sound exciting. Whats your thought about it? Will you be investing in a VR headset for $299 when it arrives next year? Will you wait for the market to mature? Let us know in the comments.
