Windows 11 Requirements

Microsoft has made some changes to Windows 11 that should make it perform better on existing PCs that support it. Those changes are rather technical, but basically, Microsoft has tuned Windows 11 to give more CPU, memory, and other system resources to the apps that are running in the foreground. In addition, the instant-on experience has been improved by keeping the RAM powered even when the PC is sleeping. Finally, the app disk footprint has been reduced across the operating system and the browser cache.

While the requirements have increased, they’re still well under what most relatively modern PCs provide. Some requirements can be resolved if you’re running an older PC, such as upgrading your display, graphics card, RAM, or storage. Shop for Windows 11 Home and Windows 11 Pro on Newegg.com.
