Just four days after the presentation of the new Microsoft operating system, we continue with the hangover of Windows 11. And one of the aspects that is having the most impact on the new Windows 11 are the minimum requirements necessary to be able to update. Some requirements that seem to leave many users out.
There is no Windows 11 beyond 2017
With the launch of Windows 10, the Redmond did something incredible by announcing that their new update would be available to almost all users. Something that made us see real “coffee makers” moving the latest Microsoft operating system. Something that seems to have weighed heavily on Redmond.
That is why Microsoft has decided with Windows 11 to get rid of a lot of weight by introducing some requirements for the update that leaves many users out of it. Specifically, everyone with a CPU prior to 8th Gen Intel, known as Coffee Lake.
Windows 11 could reach the seventh generation of Intel
However, as we already indicated when knowing the minimum requirements for the installation of Windows 11, with Microsoft not everything is said. Thus, today the company has taken advantage of the launch of the first build of Windows 11 within the Windows Insider program to make a great announcement in this regard.
And it is that despite the fact that the company maintains the minimum requirements announced, it is open to allowing PCs with processors 7th Gen Intel and AMD Zen 1 can upgrade to Windows 11. This will depend on the results of performance and safety that the company obtains from the telemetry of the program equipment Windows Insider.
According to Microsoft, the chips 8th Gen Intel Y AMD Zen 2, Qualcomm 7 Y 8 they do comply with the principles of safety and performance. Reason why the company decided to put the minimum bar there to be able to update. Although as we have already indicated, the seventh generation Intel and AMD Zen 1 could also end up making the cut.
That said, Microsoft has also wanted to make it clear that although they are open to studying the security and performance of the previous chips, the company is fully aware that the equipment with 6th Gen Intel and Pre-Zen AMD Will Not Live Up to Expectations of the company. That decision seems to be already made. What do you think of this news?
