Windows® 8 to land on Windows® 7 hardware requisites
Every change indicates Growth. Any advancement that takes shape evidently brings an array of situational changes. Like the inevitable change in the age of a human being, technology bears changes too. This change can be aptly demonstrated from the projected arrival of multi-device operating system, Windows 8, which, during some point of time, would replace Windows 7. However this advancement doesn't bring about any change in the present Windows 7-based system. This status quo is maintained mainly because Windows 8 is equipped to enhance the computing experience, but based on the pre-installed requisites of Windows 7. So now, without much hassles what-so-ever, users can enjoy enhanced and updated computing experience with Windows 8.
Being a multi-device operating system, Windows 8 is multifaceted and intended to work on desktops, laptops, tablets as well as mobile phones. Running Windows 8 effectively doesn’t depend on any particular hardware enhancement to suffice its requisites. It would not need any improved hardware insertion to the already existing Windows 7 requisites, be it the case of memory, CPU or disk space. Windows 8 is capable of running on Intel, AMD and ARM-based chips.
Let us find the minimum requisitions of Windows 7 that are expected to be well utilized by Windows 8 without the need to integrate any extra factor:
• 1 GHz processor,
• 1 GB of RAM,
• 16 GB of spare hard disk space,
• DirectX 9 graphics.
These are system requirements on which even Windows Vista operating system would work well. Hence, Windows 8 can effectively be upgraded in the systems using any of Windows 7 or Windows Vista-based operating system. Although regarding this fact, any official confirmation from Microsoft is yet to arrive.
According to Windows corporate vice-president, Tami Reller, "We've also built intelligence into Windows 8 so that it can adapt to the user experience based on the hardware of the user. So, whether you are upgrading an existing PC, or buying a new one, Windows will adapt to make the most of that hardware."
This multi-device operating system, compatible with Windows 7 and Windows Vista system set-up, is expected to glow brighter with enhanced technology and performance. So, once it is launched for retail consumers, buy it and install it without any worries.
