Microsoft: Windows Mixed Reality Check checks computer

Friday, September 15th, 2017 | Gadgets

A question often asked by Virtual Reality is that of a sufficiently fast system. If you do not want to match your own components individually with partly inaccurate system requirements, the tools of the manufacturers help. One such app has enabled Microsoft in the store. The Windows Mixed Reality Check checks whether the computer is fast enough and all necessary hardware and software is available. Windows Mixed Reality is – regardless of its name – Microsoft's virtual reality platform.

Headsets are available from the middle of October 2017 from Acer, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo. However, the models differ technically from each other, only the haptics and the adjustment of the holding strap as well as the front upholstery show smaller differences. Microsoft requires the system requirements of Windows Mixed Reality as mandatory Windows 10 with the case Creators Update and Bluetooth 4.0 – without the controllers do not work. With a notebook and with many complete systems, this is no problem, but many gaming machines lack Bluetooth. The wireless connection is usually only installed on Mini-ITX or very expensive high-end boards.

An ultrabook should suffice
The Windows Mixed Reality Check can not be carried out yet, at least we received a corresponding message on three VR-compatible systems. Basically, CPU and graphics card must be given fast enough, Bluetooth 4.0 as well as USB 3.0 plus Displayport 1.2 or HDMI 1.4 and Windows 10 together with drivers must be up to date. Microsoft also differentiates between standard and ultra in Windows Mixed Reality.
For standard is an Ultrabook chip with integrated graphics and 8 GB of RAM is sufficient. A dual kore with hyperthreading of the Kaby-Lake generation (about a Core i5-7200U) is required. But if you have at least one AMD Ryzen 5 1400 or an Intel Core i5-4590 with a Geforce GTX 960 or GTX 1050 or a Radeon RX 460, you get a much more comfortable 90 Hz.
