In this blog post, I will discuss the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 8. As of now, there is no official information about the hardware requirements, but I will provide my views on it.
Microsoft has not officially announced the name of next version of Windows. Also, there is no official word about the hardware requirements for Windows 8.
Microsoft claims they will make the newer versions of Windows faster and thinner, but I don't expect that the minimum requirements for Windows 8 will be anything less than the windows 7 system requirements.
Considering the graphics improvements that everybody is expecting on Windows 8, there a big chance that we will have to have a better graphics card than we all currently have to take full advantage of advanced graphics features in Windows 8.
Ideally, all computers that run Windows 7 should be able to run Windows 8 as well. However, utill upgraded to the new minimum requirements for Windows 8, we may not be able to take advantage of some of the new features.
I will update this resource after I get any relaible information from Microsoft about Windows 8 and minimum system requirements.
