Windows 11 can be installed on older processors | Digital Trends Spanish

Microsoft has announced some small changes to the Windows 11 system requirements, which can be installed on older computers that did not meet all the previously announced specifications.

In a post in his official blogMicrosoft gave some important details for everyone planning to move to Windows 11 when it debuts. The first and most relevant thing is that the previously announced technical specifications remain unchanged, especially for all users who are going to install Windows 11 from the current Windows 10.

But Microsoft explains that, after analyzing other processor models, they have decided to expand the list of compatible Intel chips for Windows 11. The added models belong to the seventh generation and are all of the Intel Core X and Xeon W series, in addition from the Intel Core i7-7820HQ that was released with the latest drivers, such as the one for the Surface Studio 2.

Likewise, Microsoft also reveals that the list of AMD processors with Zen 1st generation architecture do not meet the necessary requirements for Windows 11 and therefore there are no changes in the compatibility with AMD. This means that the Ryzen 1000 series processors are not officially supported by the new operating system.

Microsoft also ensures that, in the case of unsupported hardware, the crashes of the kernel Windows increase by 52 percent compared to hardware that does have official support. This data can serve to discourage installations in equipment that do not meet the minimum requirements, which in any case will not be prohibited or anything, but will be at greater risk of falls and problems.

The company will also be releasing an updated version of the application to check if a device is compatible with Windows 11 and in which the new processor models mentioned above will be added. And beyond these chips, the rest of the specifications remain unchanged: 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, and a DirectX 12 compatible video card.
