Hardware requirements for Game DVR on Windows 10

To record game clips with Game DVR on Windows 10, you need one of these video cards:

  • AMD: AMD Radeon HD 7700 series, HD 7700M series, HD 8500 series, HD 8500M series, R9 series, and R7 series or later.
  • NVIDIA: GeForce 600 series or later, GeForce 800M series or later, Quadro Kxxx series or later.
  • Intel: Intel HD graphics 4200 or later, Intel Iris Graphics 5100 or later.

To check the video card on your PC, go to the search box on the taskbar and search for “Device Manager.” In Device Manager, expand Display adapters

If your PC can’t record game clips, you’ll see one of the following messages to let you know it won’t work:

Sorry, this PC doesn't meet the hardware requirements for recording clips. For more info, go to Game bar settings.

Sorry, this PC doesn't meet the hardware requirements for recording clips. Learn more.

If you see one of these error messages, it means you'll need to upgrade your video card to record game clips. You always have the option to take a screenshot of your game, even if you don’t have one of these video cards.
