Microsoft has announced its Next-G Windows11 operating system for desktop users after six years of its previous version Windows10. The operating system will be launched till the end of this year for which Microsoft has shared a stringent list of requirements that will be needed for any device to be eligible for its latest Windows11 update.
Users need to have a device with a 1GHz or faster processor with 2 or more cores on a compatible 64-bit processor, at least 4GB of RAM, at least 64GB of storage, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0, and a graphics card that is compatible with DirectX 12 or later with WDDM 2.0 driver. For the time being, the company has shared more details on how this update will be delivered to users.
During a recent Ask Microsoft Anything session, Microsoft’s Aria Carley confirmed that the company doesn’t want IT Admins and users to keep pondering over whether their device is supported or not, the device will actually be able to determine by itself before ever being offered and wasting that download. The Microsoft executive also said that modifying group policy will not enable users to skirt the listed requirements at all. “We’re still going to block you from upgrading your device to an unsupported state since we really want to make sure that your devices stay supported and secure.
