New report claims Windows 11 'AI PCs' will require 16GB RAM, but will they?

Seems like whoever wrote that report may have just made that up. I'd not be surprised if 16 GB was the recommended spec but, at most, that report would be based on a leak from a Microsoft insider so to state that Microsoft is going to do that without any qualifier is misleading at best.

The realistic minimum RAM now for Windows 10/11 is 8GB. With all the AI junk MS is reported to be throwing into Windows 12, I would not be surprised if 16GB becomes the new minimum.

"Microsoft has no comment on whether Windows PCs will need 16GB of RAM to run AI."

Which means it is true. If it was not true, Microsoft would have said so. Remember, MS also had "no comment" last year when asked - multiple times - about the Surface Duo being dead.

And the Surface Duo is clearly dead. And we all knew it was dead last year. MS "no comment" notwithstanding.

While "no comment" can be said when a report is accurate but Microsoft does not want to confirm it publicly at that time, that's not always the case. It's very normal for us to reach out to Microsoft for comment and to not get official word back or to receive "no comment" as a reply.
