With the announcement of Windows 11, as expected, Microsoft quickly realized that millions of its users were excited to try out the new version of its operating system. With that, the company was quick to release a tool – PC Health Check – to help users understand if their PCs will be able to upgrade to Windows 11.
However, this app ended up not working as desired and sparked a lot of controversy among the users. With great displeasure, the company decided to remove the app from its website while working to resolve these issues.
Basically, it looks like Microsoft decided to make Windows 11 official without being completely sure of its minimum system requirements, spreading a real “mess” of information online.
Microsoft still does not reveal a summary list of requirements for Windows 11
Interestingly, even though the most recent post on his blog was aimed at educating users about the system requirements, he ended up not revealing a summary list to guide users.
In the post, the company explained in a very detailed way that Windows 11 was designed as a complete package of experiences, enabling to unleash the full potential of every PC. To do this, they had to increase requirements in terms of security, reliability, and compatibility.
With this in mind, they added that they are confident that devices with 8th generation Intel processors, AMD Zen 2 and Qualcomm 7/8 will be able to meet the minimum requirements.
The first version of Windows 11 is now available for download
For users registered in the Windows Insiders PC Program who can respond positively to the requirements, the first version of Windows 11 is now available.
However, it is important to emphasize that this is the Developer Preview version, still in the initial testing phase and that it may present many bugs and lack of some features that are not fully finalized yet.
