Since the introduction of Windows 11, it has become clear that the minimum system required to run this version has been greatly improved. It was first announced that Intel processors from the eighth generation onwards and AMD processors from the Raizen 3000 onwards could run Windows 11. But now Microsoft has announced that it will probably add support for the seventh generation of Intel and AMD Zen 1 processors to Windows 11.
This redmond giant recently In a post on your blog Provides a description of the minimum system requirements for Windows 11. Microsoft says Windows 11 is a set of features that require advanced chips to access. The company says that the older sixth-generation Intel processors and pre-AMD Zen processors do not have the necessary qualifications to run Windows 11. But it may be possible to support seventh-generation Intel and AMD Zen 1 processors. The company is set to test the processors with insiders.
“As Windows releases its insiders and hardware partners, we’re testing to see if Windows 11 runs on Intel and AMD Zen 1 7th processors,” Microsoft said in a blog post. “Information and results from these tests will be shared with you in the future.”
Windows 11 requires a TPM 2.0 chip, but this chip is not the only prerequisite for installing the next version of Windows. The system CPU must also have the new model of Windows drivers. This is why the minimum system requirements for Windows 11 at release time are not the same as the minimum system requirements for insider testing.
In other words, with a computer equipped with a seventh-generation Intel processor such as Surface Studio 2, you can log in to the insiders, but you may not be able to install the final version of Windows 11. In addition, Microsoft has announced that it will make PC Health Check software inaccessible and re-optimize it to provide users with more useful information about system support for Windows 11. The Redmondians have also recently released the first preview of Windows 11.
