Minimum requirements Kinect 2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I know the minimum requirements for Kinect v2 is 3.1 GHz.

    My laptop meets all other requirements with ease but the processor is set to 1.6-2.3 GHz.

    Does that mean that Kinect 2 won't work at all, it will work but with heavy latency problems, or it will work with non heavy applications?

    A laptop with a speedy 3.1 GHz processor costs very very mucho much!

  • I have used the Kinect 2 (for Windows) on a original Surface Pro using a i5-3317U CPU (1.7 up to 2.6 GHz) without many problems, and I'm not even sure it was throttling for anything but KinectFusion (achieving 5fps on an integrated GPU), so I'm guessing 2.3GHz should work...depends on what's a non-heavy application?

    I'd like to know if anyone used it on an Atom CPU, something like a Surface 3 (non-Pro) device, at least only to record streams via Kinect Studio connected to a Kinect v2...any Cherry or Bay Trail 2-in-1s?

    P.S. I do have some problems using a Kinect for Xbox One with a PC adapter, but I think it's due USB bandwidth
