Microsoft Says: Next-Gen CPUs Will Only Require Windows 10

Beginning with the current sixth era Skylake processors, future CPUs are just going to be completely good with Windows 10, Microsoft has affirmed. At the end of the day, in the event that you purchase another Windows machine, you run Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 on it at your own danger. It’s all to do with late head-ways in silicon innovation and programming code, Microsoft says: modifying the code in more established OSes to exploit new equipment developments is obviously excessively difficult and wasteful at this stage.

For Microsoft and its equipment accomplices, getting everybody in agreement is a definitive objective. For clients who need another Skylake machine that is perfect with prior variants of Windows, Microsoft will be distributed a short rundown of PCs that will be upheld until July 2017.

In the event that these PCs are not moved up to Windows 10 preceding then, just “the most basic security redesigns” will be discharged for these gadgets. That implies any Skylake-controlled PC running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 after that date might be presented to an expanding number of security vulnerabilities or it may not work effectively by any stretch of the imagination.

“Organizations of any size intrigued by moving up to Windows 10 ought to contact their Microsoft innovation delegate today for help,” says the blog entry. Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 running on more established, pre-Skylake silicon is another matter.

Windows 7 machines will get all the vital “security, unwavering quality and similarity” overhauls until January 2020; for Windows 8.1, that date is reached out to January 2023. This new declaration just applies to more established programming on the most up to date equipment.

“This move empowers us to concentrate on profound mix in the middle of Windows and the silicon, while keeping up greatest unwavering quality and similarity with past eras of stage and silicon,” says Microsoft’s Terry Myerson. “Contrasted with Windows 7 PCs, Skylake when joined with Windows 10, empowers up to 30x better design and 3x the battery life.”
