Many Windows users are holding their breath on the latest release called Windows 7. It is said that Windows 7 is a lot better than Windows Vista because of its big new features such as easier run time behavior.
What are the Requirements?
Windows 7 style shall be maintaining the status quo in terms of resource requirements. This means that users who are expecting more are in for a disappointment. Windows 7 style is said to be at best quite similar with Windows Vista in terms of resource footprint.
One of the requirements of Windows 2 style is enormous memory. Unlike Vista, which needs 2GB as the minimum requirement, Windows 7 shall need 4GB. Moreover, single core is passé and dual cores are a must.
Windows 7 shall also be building on top of Windows Vista’s graphics, audio and storage subsystems. It shall also feature all the usual details such as the UAC, the kernel, driver integration and others.
The requirements under Windows 7 style shall be a computer with a 1-GHz 32-, or 64-bit (x64) processor, 1 GB of system memory, a DirectX 10 graphics card, with over 128MB of graphics memory, and a 40 GB hard drive. These requirements shall be enough to run Windows 7 style.
Microsoft Windows is trying its best to make Windows 7 more energy efficient that needs fewer resources in RAM. The release of this version in 2010 is being waited upon because of its claims of less hardware resources. But is this quite true?
