New processors Intel Just Can Use Windows 10
the latest generation of Intel processors will only be able to use the operating system Windows 10. This is a result of a change in Microsoft policy against his older operating systems, namely Windows 7 and 8.
Microsoft is not going to waste the sweat to make the new device works using the old operating system. There will be no updates and it could be, Windows 7 and 8 will not work at all.
"As the walk, there will be a new generation of processors and they need the latest Windows platform as well as the most suitable to support it," wrote the software giant as quoted ColekcolekTekno on its official blog on Monday (18/01/2016).
In addition to Intel, processors made by AMD and Qualcomm will follow the "rules" of Microsoft's new.
It should be noted, this does not mean Windows 7 and 8 has not received an update at all. Microsoft still keep its promise to continuously update the system until January 14, 2020 and January 10, 2023.
Only Microsoft and his colleagues agreed that the old operating system is quite pinned on a computer with hardware as old.
As for the new generation of processors, such as Intel Kaby Lake, 8996 Qualcomm and AMD Bristol Ridge matched pairs only with Windows 10.
Intel Skylake, which was released late last year, has also been subject to the policy. Therefore Skylake-based computers that you buy can not use the old Windows.
However, Microsoft is providing relief to customers from the enterprise segment, which usually miss an update because it needs to ensure stability of their system.
The software giant will manage a series of list Skylake system, which still gets updated Windows 7 and 8.1. Note that this support is only valid until July 17, 2017.
