I'm a little bit late to the party here but I've been very busy this year. Some of my customers have started asking about Windows 11 so I've started looking into Windows 11 readiness. There has been some controversy about this already. Organizations are finding that many of the devices that easily run Windows 10 are not capable of running Windows 11.
Windows 11 requirements.
Let's start with the hardware requirements. They are clearly defined in the Microsoft documentation.
- Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with two or more cores on a compatible 64-bit processor or system on a chip (SoC).
- RAM: 4 gigabytes (GB) or greater.
- Storage: 64 GB or greater available storage is required to install Windows 11.
- Additional storage space might be required to download updates and enable specific features.
- Graphics card: Compatible with DirectX 12 or later, with a WDDM 2.0 driver.
- System firmware: UEFI, Secure Boot capable.
- TPM: Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0.
- Display: High definition (720p) display, 9" or greater monitor, 8 bits per color channel.
