This is a very low bar to clear, as even Intel's low-powered Atom and Celeron processors have been above the 1GHz mark for several years.
If you're running an AMD processor or Intel Core processor from this decade, you'll have no problems.
This processor will need to be paired with 1GB of RAM for 32-bit and 2GB for 64-bit.
(Naturally, 4GB or more is where you'll get the best performance.) There are also basic requirements for storage, with a minimum 16GB of hard disk space for the 32-bit version of the OS and 20GB for the 64-bit version.
Updating or upgrading the software on your computer can make a difference too, especially when the latest version includes performance enhancements.Firefox and some plugins use your graphics card to help speed up the display of web content.Graphic cards are also used by advanced web features like Web GL.If you're thinking that these basic requirements don't seem that demanding, you're right.Aside from up-to-date software and drivers, these are pretty much what you get with every Windows PC sold in the last decade.There are reports of weirdness with Windows 10 if you have a monitor (say on an all-in-one PC) with a non-standard resolution (like 1,600 by 900) making the change, so look for updated display drivers before you upgrade.Almost any current desktop PC, from the revved up MSI Aegis Ti3 gaming rig to the unbelievably small Intel Compute Stick will run the Fall Creators Update without any trouble. Again, most laptops will upgrade without a hitch, whether it's the ultra-affordable Acer Aspire E 15, the potent Acer Predator 21.In these instances you fix the problems by disabling hardware acceleration and Web GL. (If you're upgrading from Windows 7 or 8, you'll pay 9 for Windows 10 Home or 9 for Pro.) But another question looms large. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update also adds support for Mixed Reality Headsets.When your computer starts to slow down or fails to meet your needs, contact San Diego Computer Consultants and we’ll help you determine what computer upgrades will allow your system to regain some of its former glory.Computer upgrades are something we do on a daily basis, and we would be more than happy to assist you in upgrading the right components that will improve performance and prolong the life of your machine.
