Minimum Specs For Windows 10 VR Headsets Revealed

All Windows 10 PCs will receive the software required for virtual reality experiences when next year’s Creators Update is released, but there are still hardware requirements to meet if you want to run the OS in VR. The latest test build of Windows 10 includes a “Windows Holographic First Run” app which reveals the minimum requirements and checks to see if your PC will be adequate.

Here are the necessary specs:

4 GB of RAM
USB 3.0
A graphics card with DirectX 12 support
4 CPU cores (which includes dual-core hyperthreading processors)

As long as your PC meets those requirements, which aren’t very significant, “your set up is good to play most experiences.”

VR headsets for Windows 10 will be available from multiple companies and will begin at $299.
