The real hardware requirements for Windows 10

After the release of Windows 10 version 1903, Microsoft updated its official hardware requirements so that a computer with this OS could work.

But those with low-hardware computers who have installed Windows 10 may have already noticed that the operating system is literally useless because it runs too slowly.

From a technical point of view, yes, it works with the minimum requirements, but its performance is poor. Below you will find the minimum requirements, according to Microsoft, but also the really recommended hardware requirements that your device must meet in order to have an impressive performance with the latest version of the operating system.

Officially, Windows 10 version 1903 requires a computer that meets the following specifications:
Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit
Hard disk space: 32 GB for 64 bit and 32 bit operating system
Graphics card: DirectX 9 or later
Screen resolution: 800 x 600, minimum screen diagonal size for main screen 7 inches or larger.

Anyone trying to use Windows 10 on such hardware can confirm that these system requirements are very optimistic. 2GB of RAM is nothing for the operating system, and the hard drive is its performance.

In another official Microsoft document, the company highlights the material it deems appropriate for its product. According to the document, you should have 8 GB of RAM or better 16 GB and the SSD / NVMe drive as it plays an important role in the configuration of the device.

Other important hardware requirements are 8th generation Intel processors (Intel i3 / i5 / i7 / i9-7x), Core M3-7xxx, Xeon E3-xxxx and Xeon E5-xxxx processors, AMD 8th generation processors (A Series Ax- 9xxx, E-Series Ex-9xxx, FX-9xxx) or ARM64 processors (Snapdragon SDM850 or later).

Therefore, the optimal hardware configuration for Windows 10 looks at least as follows:
Processor: 8th generation Intel processors (Intel i3 / i5 / i7 / i9-7x), Core M3-7xxx, Xeon E3-xxxx and Xeon E5-xxxx processors, 8th generation AMD Ex-9xxx, FX-9xxx processors) or ARM64 processors (Snapdragon SDM850 or later)
RAM: 4 gigabytes (GB) for 32-bit or 16 GB for 64-bit
SSD / NVMe: at least 128 GB for 64 bit and 32 bit operating systems
Graphics card: DirectX 9 or later
Screen resolution: 800 x 600, minimum screen diagonal size for the main screen 7 inches or larger.

The decision and the pocket is yours.

  1. A quad, even Phenom or Core 2 Quad decade is sufficient for comfortable operation with typical tasks. A graphics card with accelerated graphics, even average low performance 5 with 1GB memory, can also help. 4GB memory is enough, 8GB is good to be there. A simple 18-20 SATA SSD is also enough. Generally the requirements are low because they have not changed much in relation to Windows 7. What has changed is the program requirements, but nothing crazy. The other modern problem is the websites with 150 ads, which is corrected with a simple adblock.

  2. I think you're taking it to create comments and clicks. That's why I will avoid continuing my game by giving the features of my own system that although old enough, after the latest update 1903 goes now faster than the kubuntu, which I have preferred so far and for its speed.
