Windows 11 is officially coming out this fall. The operating system has changed a lot, both internally and externally, such as the Start menu.
Microsoft has already published the official minimum system requirements:
Processor: at least two cores clocked at least 1 GHz on a compatible 64-bit processor or System on Chip (SoC)
- RAM: 4GB
- Storage: At least 64 GB on the drive
- Video Adapter: DirectX 12 / WDDM 2.x compatible graphics adapter
- Display: > 9 inches with HD resolution (720p)
- Internet connection: A Microsoft account and Internet connection is required to install Windows 11
To find out for sure, you can run the official utility to check if your hardware is compatible with the new Windows.
How to check whether your computer supports Windows 11
- Download and install the Windows PC Health utility.
- Run the program and select Check. This will show you whether the PC is suitable for Windows 11.
Important: Testing will require TPM 2.0, a cryptographic processor that performs encryption operations and contains several physical security mechanisms to prevent tampering. You can check its availability at the command line with the tpm.msc command.
