Detailed HoloLens Hardware Specs

The innovations of Microsoft Holographics brought to life by the Microsoft HoloLens are quite remarkable. While the HoloLens Development Edition is still v1 hardware, it’s really amazing how well it works. One thing Microsoft hasn’t really published is what the hardware specifications (CPU, RAM, Storage, etc) are inside powering the HoloLens device. Using the HoloLens Settings app along with the AIDA64 app available in the Windows Store many of the hardware specification details can be discovered. A compilation of the HoloLens hardware specs are below.

This is likely far more technical hardware details than most people are interested in, but that’s the exact reason why I’ve compiled and posted it here. The purpose of this site is to take a deep dive into all things relating to the Microsoft HoloLens. What better to dive deep into than the hardware inside the Microsoft HoloLens itself.
