Break out the screwdriver, Vista hardware Requirements have been announced.
A Windows Vista Capable PC includes at least:
A modern processor (at least 800MHz).
512 MB of system memory.
A graphics processor that is DirectX 9 capable.
The PC Above would barely run Windows XP. Will Vista perform any better?
The Vista beta is barely usable on a 1 GHz PC today so I wasn’t expecting much in regards to old equipment. I will be surprised if Vista is actually usable on anything less than a 1.5 GHz processor.
