Windows 11 preview version adapts to Intel’s 6th generation CPU

Recently, Microsoft released the first Windows 11 Insider Preview version for the Dev development channel, namely Build 22000.51! Microsoft said that as we complete the finalization of the product in the next few months, We will verify this experience with you. In this early preview, you will be able to try out many of the new features previously shown, but not all of them.

in the blog post, Microsoft tried again to clarify the minimum configuration requirements of Windows 11, which confused many people, especially regarding which generation of CPU the new operating system will support.

The blog post clearly pointed out that Intel’s sixth-generation Skylake and earlier CPUs, as well as non-AMD Zen processors, will not meet the “principles surrounding security and reliability and the minimum system requirements of Windows 11.”

This is consistent with Microsoft’s initial statement that Windows 11 will require Intel’s eighth-generation Coffee Lake or AMD Zen 2 processors and above, but Intel’s seventh-generation Kaby Lake and AMD Zen 1 user still have some hope. In the blog post, Microsoft claimed that the reason Windows 11 will not run on these CPUs is to maintain a higher level of security, stability, and reliability.

However, it should be noted that in the subsequent update of the blog post, Microsoft deleted the content of “Intel’s 6th generation Core and AMD Zen before the CPU is not applicable”, but there is no special explanation.
