The UEFI and TPM requirements are already total bullshit, but fine, I'll buy the TPM add-on for my motherboard (ASUS Maximus VIII Hero) and will reformat to start using UEFI, but the CPU list is a hard block.— Artem Russakovskii (@ArtemR) June 26, 2021
this surface studio 2 i spent $4500 on three years ago was expensive, but it was an investment in my future and should be supported for a long time— dan seifert (@dcseifert) June 25, 2021
now let me just take a big sip of coffee and use this little windows 11 upgrade checker tool Microsoft came out with this week
Microsoft confirms Windows 11 will only support 8th Gen and up CPUs. According to Microsoft, Windows 11 will not install on earlier CPUs. This means Microsoft's own Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro (2017), and Surface Studio 2 ($3,499) will not be upgradeable to Windows 11 ? https://t.co/tVbEbbKYDy— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) June 26, 2021
Microsoft has promised a blog post explaining all this, but it’s obviously not coming until next week now. I find it hard to believe there won’t be a way to get Windows 11 running on older CPUs, instead of it being limited to officially OEM supported ones— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) June 26, 2021
They edited their documents a few hours ago, there is no mention of "hard floor" and "soft floor" for upgrading anymore.— Joffrey ジョフレ (@JoffreyAbeilard) June 26, 2021
So, the CPU requirements seems mendatory now.. until they change their wording again. This is a mess
it's wild that macOS Monterey will support Mac Pro models from 2013 and Mac mini models from fall 2014, but Windows 11 is killing support for plenty of devices that were launched less than 4 years ago— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) June 26, 2021
If Microsoft nerfs this box, they get to tell my wife why we need two new desktops and why the 7700k and 7900X are trash CPUs— Brad Sams (@bdsams) June 26, 2021
A MacBook Pro from 2015 is compatible for macOS Monterey this fall.— Sami Fathi (@SamiFathi_) June 26, 2021
The Microsoft Surface Pro 4, also from 2015, is not officially compatible with Windows 11.
Talk about “planned obsolescence,” huh ?
This is absolute insanity. I bought a Surface Go (2018) *last year* and it's not on the supported CPUs list, but the iPad Air 2 it replaced from 2014 is going to run iPadOS 15.— Avery Penn (@AveryisOnline) June 27, 2021
I have a dual-core CPU >1GHz, with TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot. There is literally no reason for this. https://t.co/bs5czgFs9k
You have to wonder about the psychology of a company that HAD to know this 8th-gen Intel thing was absolutely going to blow up in its face and yet kept on going anyway as if it were completely normal.— Paul Thurrott (@thurrott) June 28, 2021
Granted, this is the same company that released Windows 8.
"The situation is even worse when you consider the severe global supply chain problems involving microprocessors. We should be extending the lives of existing machines as much as possible right now, encouraging people to purchase new computers right now is irresponsible." https://t.co/DXiedRjzLJ— Solarus (@Solarus0) June 28, 2021
