With the unveiling of their Creators Update, Microsoft unveiled their plans to release a set of VR headsets for Windows 10, which comes as part of Microsoft’s attempt to create their own VR platform, Windows Holographic.

With the release of the latest test builds of Windows 10, Microsoft is now providing testers with a “Windows Holographic First Run”, which is an application that will test a machine to ensure it is compatible with Microsoft’s VR system.

With this app we have learned the minimum requirements for the system, which are:

  • 4GB of RAM
  • USB 3.0 port
  • A graphics card with DirectX 12 support
  • 4 CPU cores, including dual-core processors with hyperthreading

These specs are pretty surprising and it is great news for anyone who doesn’t want to spend a ton of money on a virtual reality setup.

As we learn more about these devices we will let you know.

You can check out the Windows Holographic application via the trailer below.
