Windows 10 and Windows 11 powers Windows Mixed Reality on variety of headsets across a diverse set of PC hardware. The power of your PC will determine what experiences you can have. With higher end PCs, you get some extra capabilities and features:
  • Crisper visuals and a higher refresh rate.
  • More apps and experiences—including the most graphics-intensive games.
  • A ‘’mirror’’ window on your desktop that shows what you see in mixed reality.
  • Record and share videos and photos of your mixed reality experiences.
See if your PC can run Windows Mixed Reality by reviewing the hardware guidelines below and running the Mixed Reality Portal app.

Remember, your performance will vary depending on your exact setup. You'll also need to make sure your PC has the right ports for the Windows Mixed Reality immersive headset that you're using.

If your PC supports Windows Mixed Reality, you an purchase any of the publicly available Windows Mixed Reality immersive headsets from various global retailers. You can also find headsets at the online Microsoft Store, all of which can be used for mixed reality development.

I've not tried mixed reality in a few years; I must dig out my kit and try it on Win11.
