Windows 11 Minimum System Requirements Updated

Update for Windows 11 system requirements has arrived. Microsoft has made a new statement.

As of today, the Windows 11 Insider version has been released. In addition, changes came for Windows 11 system requirements. This situation, frequently expressed by our readers, was finally updated by being registered from the most accurate source, namely the company itself.

“The purpose of today’s post is to acknowledge and clarify the confusion caused by our PC Health Check tool, to share more details on why we’re updating the system requirements for Windows 11, and to lay out the way for us to learn and tune in. Below is what we’ve done based on this feedback, including updating our PC Health check app for greater clarity and ensuring Windows Insiders have the ability to install Windows 11 on 7th generation processors to provide us with more data on performance and security. You will find the changes.

also We are committed to providing more technical details about the principles behind our decisions. With Windows 11, we are focused on improving security and reliability and ensuring compatibility. This is what drives our decisions.”

Why have the Windows 11 system requirements changed?

“Windows 11; Designed and built as a complete set of experiences that unleash the full power of the PC our customers trust, including security, reliability, compatibility, video conferencing, multitasking, playback, creation, creation, learning. In addition, we need a minimum system requirement that allows us to adapt the software and hardware to use the true value and power of the computer to keep up with people’s expectations and needs and deliver the best experiences now and in the future. To do this, we have adopted the following principles.”


“Windows 11 raises the bar on security by requiring hardware that can enable protections such as Windows Hello, Device Encryption, virtualization-based security (VBS), hypervisor protected code integrity (HVCI), and Secure Boot. The combination of these features has been shown to reduce malware by 60% on tested devices. To meet the principle, all Windows 11 powered CPUs have a built-in TPM, support secure boot, and support VBS and certain VBS features.”


Devices upgraded to Windows 11 will be in a supported and trusted state. (By choosing CPUs powered by our OEM and silicon partners that adopt the new Windows Driver model and provide a 99.8% crash-free experience.)

Compatibility and Microsoft Office system requirements

“Windows 11 is designed to be compatible with the apps you use. It has baselines > 1GHz, 2-core processors, 4GB memory and 64GB storage, in line with our minimum system requirements for Office and Microsoft Teams.

Adhering to the above principles, we are confident that devices equipped with Intel 8th generation processors, AMD Zen 2 and Qualcomm 7 & 8 Series processors will meet our requirements for security & reliability and minimum system requirements for Windows 11. In addition In partnership with our OEMs, we will test to identify devices running on Intel 7th generation and AMD Zen 1 that can meet our policies. We are committed to sharing updates with you on the results of our testing over time, and to posting additional technical blogs.”

PC Health Check App

“Given these minimum system requirements, the PC Health Check application is intended to help users check whether their current Windows 10 PC can be upgraded to Windows 11. Based on the feedback so far, we acknowledge that we are not quite ready to share the level. To confirm the detail and accuracy you expect as to why a Windows 10 PC is eligible for an upgrade, we’re taking the app down temporarily. We will prepare it again this fall and make it available for use. You can reach our page for minimum system requirements.”

First Windows 11 Insider program released

“Today we are releasing the first preview build of Windows 11 to the Windows Insider community. To support Windows 11 system requirements, we’ve set the preview bar in our Windows Insider Program to match the minimum system requirements for Windows 11, excluding TPM 2.0 and CPU family/model. By providing preview builds to the various systems in our Windows Insider Program, we’ll learn how Windows 11 performs more extensively across CPU models, and we’ll let you know what adjustments we need to make to our minimum system requirements in the future. We look forward to product feedback and learnings as this is an important step towards making Windows 11 generally available this year – thank you to the Windows Insider community for your excitement and feedback so far!”
