Re: windows 11 and older processers


 

Which is why I am asking.

My 4th generation aint gona cut it but its not like the user needs it.

The user that I have on the 7th gen is happy with 10.

However there is always that option if I wanted to.

That being said I really hope they either fix the default association thing or someone makes a hack so we can associate things like we do on windows 10 because right now microsoft are really trying to make users use their software which is fair but associating via each filetype is going to be madness.

Alongside a new preview build of Windows 11, Microsoft announced a significant update to Windows 11 minimum hardware requirements. The company has been blocking old Windows 10 PCs from downloading preview Windows 11 builds, allowing the new system to run only on devices with Intel 8th / AMD Ryzen 2nd gen CPUs and up. Following users' discontent with hardware requirements and evaluating data from early testers, Microsoft decided to backtrack some of the compatibility rules. Now, any Windows 10-compatible PC can run Windows 11 without significant limitations.
When it comes to upgrading PCs with unsupported processors to Windows 11, Microsoft says users are free to clean-install the system using official ISOs. If your computer has a 64-bit CPU with two cores running at 1GHz, 4 GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage, you are good to go.

I also believe they are going to remove the requirement for TPM, but tthat's not official, just rumors, and should be taken as a grain of salt.

And since Windows 10 will be supported until 2025, those who have older processors (including myself) have nothing to worry about.� By the time Windows 10 reaches end of life, any machine I have, including this one with an i7-4700MQ, will be over 10 years old and surely in need of replacement.

What follows is pure speculation on my part, but I won't be shocked if Windows 10 support ends up being extended past its original end of life date since there are a number of very recent hardware, as of this writing, that can't be upgraded to Windows 11, and that won't be ready for the recycling bin by 2025.
