Microsoft has confirmed the characteristics that computers and tablets will need to have for their manufacturers to install Windows 8.
Desktops or laptops are the least disturbed by the arrival of Windows 8. For them, Microsoft does not require minimum processor power or minimum amount of RAM. On the other hand, these computers will have to be able to update their graphics card drivers without restarting and waking up in less than two seconds, which will not displease Intel’s Ultrabooks.
Side Tablet, the deal is different. Much more draconian, the specifications are impressive.
Windows 8 should be available in beta in February. For its official release, it will be necessary to wait for the fall of 2012.
