Windows 10: New system requirements as risk for cheap tablets
The “anniversary update” for Windows 10 increase the system requirements for the 32-bit version. For narrow gauge equipment that could be a security threat.
Microsoft has 10 on the occasion of the end of July 2016 “anniversary update” for Windows (version 1607, formerly “Redstone”) revised the system requirements. In addition to a relaxation of the permitted display sizes and the TPM duty known since summer 2015 for devices with preinstalled Windows, windows 10 key generator, the associated document also describes that increases the minimum required for the 32-bit Edition with the anniversary update from 1 to 2 GB RAM.
With this change, especially cheap tablets, which are equipped with only 1 GB RAM manufacturers, are likely to disappear from the market in the medium term.

Possible consequences for cheap tablets
Is so far not clear what the consequences for existing Windows-10 devices with just 1 gigabyte of RAM. Such devices are still as new goods in the trade; normally it is simple tablets or 2-in-1 devices. Similarly equipped devices with Windows 8.1 got a free upgrade offer on Windows 10 in summer 2015.

The feature upgrade to the current version of 1511 (build 10586) fails but then stating that the minimum requirements are not met – and via Windows Update, as well as when using the media creation tools.
