    Some interesting news for PCs that "only" have integrated graphics:
    Microsoft hasn't published the full Windows Holographic hardware requirements yet, but an application shipping in the latest preview builds, the Windows Holographic First Run app, gives some hints as to what they are. The app is similar to apps that Oculus and Valve have produced for their respective platforms: it checks your system specs to determine if it's going to be ready for VR systems. Microsoft's app is a little vague, but it seems to be aiming quite low: it requires a four-thread processor (either quad core or two core/four thread), 4GB RAM (lower than Oculus' 8GB requirement), USB 3, and some amount of disk space.
    The most striking difference is in the GPU requirement. The Microsoft tool demands only DirectX 12 graphics. Notably, this isn't a requirement for a discrete GPU: the integrated GPU in Intel processors appears to pass the test (verified with Skylake), and in principle, everything from Haswell onward should make the grade. AMD's integrated graphics on 6000-series processors or better should also be good enough.
    Integrated GPUs look like they’ll be good enough for Windows 10’s VR | Ars Technica

Anyone running 10 on a low spec machine? ( eg. Core 2 processors, and pre Windows 7 compliant) I'm keen to know how the performance keeps up after a few days, weeks etc.
