Will YOU Be Able to Run Vista?

Check it out, we now know what the official requirements for Windows Vista are:

Requirements for Vista

Absolute minimum:
“So-called Vista Capable PCs, Microsoft is expected to say, will require an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and a DirectX9 capable graphics processor, the sources said.”

And to get the REAL (all features with Aero Glass interface) system enhancements:
“Premium Ready guidelines will call for a 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 128MB of dedicated graphics memory. But, having met those, a PC’s graphics processor must also adhere to DirectX9, WDDM (the Windows display driver model format for writing drivers) along with supporting Pixel Shader 2.0 and offering a color depth of 32 bits per pixel, in addition to a minimum bandwidth requirement, the sources said. Microsoft is expected to say that 128MB of graphics memory will be capable of serving a display with up to 1.9 million pixels, a resolution of up to 1200 by 1600 pixels. It’s expected to say that higher resolutions will call for another step up in memory, an allotment of 256MB or more.”
