In Windows Vista (starting with about Beta 2) and 7, Aero requires a capable GPU with a WDDM driver to display (official requirement: DirectX 9, minimum 64 MB video memory). Otherwise only the basic style, which is rendered on the CPU like in XP, is shown. In [[Windows:8|Windows 8]] M2 and up, Aero can be rendered in software, allowing one to have Aero on any video card, but possibly taking a toll in overall system performance.
A new Aero theme, [[Windows:Visual Styles:Aero Lite|Aero Lite]] was first seen in Windows 8 Build 7955 and was later seen as a transparent theme in Build 7989. The existing Aero theme was revamped in Build 8102 .
