We've recently begun setting up several different things for our organization and on the mobile side, we have access to Windows Phone 8 SDK. But, we were told that we need some type of special hardware for the emulator. What would be the system requirements for the emulator?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The emulator is a virtual machine, so the requirements for the emulator are the requirements to run Hyper-V.

These are the basic requirements:

-A 64 bit version of Windows 8 (Professional or higher)
-Hardware assisted virtualization
-Second level address translation (SLAT)
-Hardware-based Data Execution Prevention (DEP)
-At least 4 GB of RAM

For a complete list and more details, check the official documentation:
