Microsoft has just recently unveiled its latest version of Windows OS. The new operating system is set to roll out later this year, and here are the system requirements for the Windows 11 update.
According to official notes from the American tech giant, a PC would need a processor that has at least two or more cores that have a clock speed of 1GHz or higher. Furthermore, the system requirements would also require at least 4GB of RAM or more, along with a minimum of 64GB of storage. A notable requirement to be eligible for the Windows 11 update is the need for a TPM security version of TPM 1.2 or higher and SecureBootCapable support.
In other words, this also implies that the users’ PC that run on Intel‘s sixth and seventh generation processors are not eligible for the new update. On the other hand, AMD based PCs that are powered by A series and FX series are not supported. Similarly, Team Red’s Ryzen 1000 series and most Ryzen 2000 series of chips will also not run Windows 11 OS. Additionally, Windows 11 will require users’ setup to have at least a 9 inch display output with a 720p resolution.
The system will also be required to support DirectX 12 graphics or WDDM2.x. These system requirements imply that certain laptops just a couple of years old would not be able to run Windows 11. Although, desktop PC owners have the chance to upgrade certain components like the CPU to be eligible for the update. Note that some aspects like the TPM version may need to be first activated from your system’s BIOS settings. This process makes it quite troublesome for the average user.
