Windows 11: We are no longer “minus XX hours”, but count the hours that have passed since the new version of the most popular computer system can be downloaded. Windows 11 is no longer a promise or an advertisement: it is a reality and its download has been active for almost 24 hours. Although you have to check one thing first: whether your equipment is compatible.
Windows 11 is only officially supported on 8th generation and newer Intel Core processors, along with the Apollo Lake and the new Pentium and Celeron processors. This potentially excludes millions of existing Windows 10 devices from the fully supported Windows 11 upgrade, and even devices like Microsoft’s own Surface Studio 2 – which, by the way, still sells for at least $4,000 at the moment.
Older devices that are not officially supported will see a warning during: Windows 11 installation that updating is not recommended. But the operating system still needs to be installed.
Windows 11 will also be officially compatible with AMD Ryzen 2000 and newer processors, and second generation or newer EPYC chips. On the Microsoft site you have the list of compatible processors: – AMD processors that are compatible with Windows 11 – Intel processors compatible with Windows 11 – Qualcomm processors compatible with Windows 11
