換腦局裝W10: W7 W8 將不支援新一代架構

本帖最後由 q_p 於 2016-1-17 22:03 編輯
Windows 10 will be the only supported Windows platform on Intel’s upcoming “Kaby Lake” silicon, Qualcomm’s upcoming “8996” silicon, and AMD’s upcoming “Bristol Ridge” silicon.


天湖亦未能幸免:
Through July 17, 2017, Skylake devices on the supported list will also be supported with Windows 7 and 8.1. After July 2017, the most critical Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 security updates will be addressed for these configurations, and will be released if the update does not risk the reliability or compatibility of the Windows 7/8.1 platform on other devices.

Microsoft says new processors will only work with Windows 10

大家一起換機吧

M$出招救垂死挣扎嘅電腦市塲

很好,不用買新windows機,直接轉apple

TOP

if there's no compatibility, what's the point of x86 then?

TOP

全面轉玩Linux。

舊系統咪值錢羅,不用焗用win10 現在的u都夠用啦(打機除外)

新 windows 無咩特別賣點,咁迫人升級,可惜好多人連硬件都唔會升級最新野 :shifty:

TOP

其實呢單野係硬件唔支援定軟件唔支援?

係新 U 完全裝唔到 Win7 定 Win7 認唔到新 U 禁D指令?

Best guess is that you can still install win7/8 on skylake onward
but m$ won't give you patches or drivers relating to new hardwares

This is the original the announcement:

At the same time, we know many of these customers continue to rely on Windows 7 for its well understood reliability and compatibility. Windows 7 was designed nearly 10 years ago before any x86/x64 SOCs existed. For Windows 7 to run on any modern silicon, device drivers and firmware need to emulate Windows 7’s expectations for interrupt processing, bus support, and power states- which is challenging for WiFi, graphics, security, and more. As partners make customizations to legacy device drivers, services, and firmware settings, customers are likely to see regressions with Windows 7 ongoing servicing.
