And my question is, does it really not support 7th generation processors in Windows 11? Because the manufacturer (Microsoft) side is that you only need TPM 2.0.
I'm thinking the same I'm running i7-7500U and from what I can see it meets the specs needed but it's not on the list of supported processors.
Ditto. 7th generation excluded, 8th generation included.
What is the actual difference that makes Kaby Lake incompatible?
Obviously not speed, a high end Kaby Lake should be faster than a low end Coffee Lake.
They even share the same techical datasheets, eg
- Ver: 013 ID: 334663
Thanks to everyone for the answer. In principle, you will go to Win11 just will not be supported by the CPU. But will Intel release software for them under Win11 for products that are not supported?
With Windows 11 rumoured to officially launch ~November this year, there is still a bit of time for some of these requirements to be 'refined' lets say, and once the insider release is available, there will be a lot more real data on what it'll actually install on.
I wouldn't worry about it too much at the moment.
Okey-dokey in dev channel, lets see what happens after general release...
"As we release to Windows Insiders and partner with our OEMs, we will test to identify devices running on Intel 7th generation ... that may meet our principles."
