Windows 11 minimum system requirements announced: older processors won’t pull

At the presentation of Windows 11, the developers announced the minimum system requirements for the new operating system – they are higher than those of Windows 10. The main difference is that Windows 11 is available only for 64-bit processors – there will simply not be a version for chipsets based on 32-bit architecture.

Windows 11 minimum system requirements

  • Processor: 64-bit, dual-core, 1 GHz.
  • RAM: 4 GB.
  • Storage: 64 GB.
  • Display: 9 inches, 1366 × 768 pixels.
  • Graphics: DirectX 12 compatible, WWDM 2.x drivers.
  • Security: UEFI, Secure Boot and TPM 2.0.

Although Windows 11 is not available for 32-bit processors, 32-bit applications will still work.

The point about security is optional – if the computer does not have, for example, a modern TPM 2.0 chipset for processing confidential data, the system will still work. It’s just that Microsoft doesn’t guarantee that the job will be perfect.

  1. Why only support 8th generation CPU and higher? I have a laptop with a Core i7-6820HK that should be plenty for Windows 11 and yet it won’t be supported. Heck that laptop also has a TPM2.0… what gives???
