Here are the full specs of the Microsoft Hololens


Microsoft’s Hololens is a Windows 10 PC one wears on your head, which has allowed the WC to run a PC utility AIDA64 Mobile to find out the exact specs of the $3000 headset.

The results are as below:

OSWindows 10.0.11802.1033 32-bit
CPUIntel Atom x5-Z8100
1.04 GHz
Intel Airmont (14nm)
4 Logical Processors
64-bit capable
GPU/HPUHoloLens Graphics
GPU Vendor ID8086h (Intel)
Dedicated Video Memory114 MB
Shared System Memory980 MB
Storage64GB (54.09 GB available)
App Memory Usage Limit900 MB
Battery16,500 mWh
Camera Photos2.4 MP (2048×1152)
Camera Video1.1 MP (1408×792)
Video Speed30 FPS

Of particular note is the processor, which the processor, which is an Intel Atom x5-Z8100. Intel has withdrawn from development of the ATOM series of processors, which should leave Microsoft with a conundrum when they actually come to commercialize the device.  Microsoft will either need to stock up on supplies of the processor, contract with Intel to continue production just for them or use a custom foundry and licensed specs to create their own.

The specs are otherwise as expected for a low-end laptop, with 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, 2.4 megapixel camera and 16,500 battery.  The small battery can of course be supplemented with the usual power banks for longer autonomy.

Besides the basic PC bits the device of course includes some sophisticated custom hardware, including:

  • Custom-built Microsoft Holographic Processing Unit (HPU 1.0)
  • See-through holographic lenses (waveguides)
  • 2 HD 16:9 light engines
  • 1 IMU
  • 4 environment understanding cameras
  • 1 depth camera
  • 1 2MP photo / HD video camera
  • Mixed reality capture
  • 4 microphones
  • 1 ambient light sensor

The Hololens development unit is currently available for purchase for $3000. Those interested and well-funded can apply for a device here.
