Windows 10 Anniversary Edition’s New Hardware Requirements

Windows 10 Anniversary Edition’s New Hardware Requirements

As Microsoft is preparing for the upcoming Anniversary edition of Windows 10 in late July, the company has modified expectations for hardware support.

According to updated pages on MSDN (HERE and HERE), here’s the important pieces you need to prepare for…

  • Windows 10 mobile will now run on devices up to 9 inches (that’s up from 7.99 inches)
  • Windows 10 desktop’s lower screen limit is 7 inches (that’s down from 8 inches)
  • Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions required at least 2GB of RAM. (originally 32-bit would run on 1GB)
  • 32-bit devices must have 16GB of storage
  • 64-bit devices must have 20GB of storage

Most corporate PCs and devices should already be enough to run Windows 10 Anniversary Edition, but it’s good to know what to expect.
