    What is the minimum hardware specification needed to install Windows 8 in System?

    Is the hardware specification needed for Windows 8 going to be higher than the one which was used for Windows Vista and 7? Can you tell me what the minimum hardware requirement to install Windows 8 in System?

    The minimum hardware specification needed for Windows 8 is less when compared with the previous versions i.e Vista and Windows 7 but if you have better hardware then off course there will be better performance, the minimum system requirement required to install for Windows 8 is as follows,

    > Processor - 1 Ghz processor(min), you can use any intel i3, i5 or i7 processor or AMD.
    > RAM - 1GB(min) for 32 bit installation, 2GB(min) for 64bit installation.
    > Hard Disk Space - 16GB to run 32 bit installation and 20GB for 64bit installation.
    > Graphics - Need Direct X9 and integrated Graphics will be suffice for normal working if not a game lover.

    The above is the minimum requirement for WIndows 8 installation which is pretty less when compared with the previous version.

    Microsoft said that the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 works well on hardware suitable for Windows 7 but these may change in final release.

    Minimum hardware requirements for Windows Consumer Preview:

    For x86(32-bit) Architecture:


    Processor: I GHz
    Memory(RAM): 1GB
    Graphics Card: DirectX9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
    Storage: 16 GB

    For x86-64(64-bit) Architecture:

    Processor: 1GHz
    Memory: 2GB
    Graphics Card: DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher
    Storage: 20 GB

    To use touch interface, touch enabled hardware is required. In order to run Metro Applications, a screen resolution of 1024X768 or higher is required to run one app at a time, and a resolution of 1366X768 is required to run two apps side-by-side using snap.

    Hello,
    The minimum hardware requirements for installing the windows 8 in your computer are
    Same as that of the windows 7.
    If you have a windows 7 running in your computer than windows 8 will be installed easily on that machine


    -->Processor :- 1 gigahertz(GHz) or faster

    -->RAM :- 1 gigabyte(GB) or 2 GB(64 bit)
    -->Hard disk Space :-16 GB(32 bit) or 20 GB(64 bit)

    -->Graphics Card :-Microsoft DirectX 9 Graphics device or higher

    Also if you want to use the touch screen interface.
    Than you would need a touch screen instead of a normal monitor.

    Regards
    -Abhishek

    Hi,

    The hardware specification needed for Windows 8 is same as the needed for Windows Vista and Windows 7:
    • 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
    • 1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
    • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
    • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
    • Taking advantage of touch input requires a screen that supports multi-touch

    But if you want run window 8 i will suggest you to run it in the system which has graphic card also....

    Hope you have got your answer...

    Re: What is the minimum hardware specification needed to install Windows 8 in System?

    The minimum hardware specification needed for Windows 8 is less when compared with the previous versions i.e Vista and Windows 7 but if you have better hardware then off course there will be better performance, the minimum system requirement required to install for Windows 8 is as follows,

    > Processor - 1 Ghz processor(min), you can use any intel i3, i5 or i7 processor or AMD.
    > RAM - 1GB(min) for 32 bit installation, 2GB(min) for 64bit installation.
    > Hard Disk Space - 16GB to run 32 bit installation and 20GB for 64bit installation.
    > Graphics - Need Direct X9 and integrated Graphics will be suffice for normal working if not a game lover.
