According to Microsoft, Windows 11 will be released in October. Windows 10 users will be able to upgrade to the upcoming system for free, provided their device meets all system requirements. If the hardware they have does not support the upcoming operating system can remain in Windows 10, which will continue to be supported until 2025.
These are for a start.
What are the requirements for processors?
According to the first list published by the company, the 8th generation Intel and the newer ones will be supported, as well as the AMD Zen 2 APU. If you have a three year old computer it will probably not be suitable for Windows 11.
So today I looked at the lists again. Of course I should mention that one page sent me to the other, like the well-known Greek sites that do clickbait. I do not think that Microsoft was trying to collect clicks, just at the moment it is probably confused, confusing everyone else.
Well I will mention the route in order.
First visit to this page.
Somewhere in the middle, I read “a compatible 64-bit processor or System on a Chip (SoC) ”and open the link.
The next page is called “Windows Processor Requirements”And for Windows 11 displays a table with more links
|Windows 11||Supported AMD Processors||Supported Intel Processors||Supported Qualcomm Processors|
If you open the links to see the supported AMD and Intel processors, a surprise awaits you.
Let me mention that the above pages that show the compatible processors of AMD and Intel, were last updated on 24/06/2021 and there does not seem to be any restriction.
