Virtual reality has warmed the hearts of many fans in the last year and promises to be one of the strong themes for 2017 as well. Microsoft is working to roll out VR in upcoming Windows 10 updates.

With HTC Vive and Oculus Rift using proprietary software, Microsoft is considering creating its own platform dedicated to virtual reality with Windows Holographic. The same used also for the use of HoloLens. The company said its headsets will cost just under $ 300, and Microsoft also let it be known the minimum requirements that our devices must have to use this type of technology. However, these are not top-of-the-range specifications on the contrary, the requests of the US company in this sense they are quite low, although some computers we have at home may not be up to par.



The specifications for using Microsoft's VR

In order to use Microsoft viewers, our device will have to have at least 4GB of RAM. A request that satisfies most users, but not all. Have a USB 3.0 port, and this knocks out low-end or outdated devices. Have a graphics card that supports DirectX 12. Have at least 4 CPU cores. This is good news for many users who will want to do the first steps with virtual reality without spending too much on expensive devices.

In December, Microsoft will hold an event where it will reveal much about the future of its headsets, including some of the applications inside. At that moment the future of Windows Holograpich and its various future uses will also be clearer.
