New Processors Will Not Support Windows 7 And Windows 8.1 Any Longer


Microsoft has decided to take extreme measures to make sure that Windows 10 gets sold.

A new policy that it has come up with clearly states that in the new future, anyone who decides to buy the latest versions of the Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm processors will not be able to get away without buying Windows 10.

The policy implies that if you are to buy the Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm new range of processors, then you will have no choice but to upgrade to Windows 10.

This is because the new processors will be designed in such a way that they will not be able to Support the windows 7 and windows 8 or 8.1 operating systems any more.

Of course, you will not stick to your current device all your life as computers are prone to slow downs the moment they become a few years old.

Also, the current scene of development puts them at a stage that their owners have no choice but to discard them, as the new versions move in.

So a hardware change becomes a must to have people up to date with the advancements in technology.

In short, the moment you decide to get a hardware change, you become a confirmed Microsoft Windows 10 customer.

Perhaps it is not just right to view this as a means to generate revenue for the Redmond giant. Past discussions have very well explained that the company had a vision that wanted to put all users on to a similar platform.

What was initially planned or rumored to be called Microsoft One, ultimately proved to be called the Windows 10.

Having most of the world on one platform would mean that it would become even easier for the company to bring about more changes in terms of technology.

Better processors are also in the making. After Broadwell, which will be the last of the processors to support Windows 7 and Windows 10, the world is now high on the capacities of Skylake processors and their computing power.

The users on these devices may have barely 18 months to upgrade to windows 10 before their devices stop supporting the older windows versions altogether.

Windows 7 and 8.1 would nevertheless be in the basic support loop for Microsoft till 2020 and 2023 respectively.
