Soon, when you buy a new PC, it won't support Windows 7 or 8. Microsoft has announced a change to its support policy that lays out its plans for future updates to its older operating systems, and the new rules mean that future PC owners with next-generation Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm processors will need to use Windows 1

It's a different meaning of "support" anyway - it'll most likely work (it's x86_64 after all) but you're on your own.

I wonder if MS and Intel made an agreement in the background to stimulate Intel's sales.
Very illegal here, so they can both can f off.

I don't think it's doable though because all those OEM PCs/laptop sold a while ago say 'Windows 7 compatible', lol

@Tom
Great find!
You are putting into this much mire effort than I am putting into disregarding Win10.

I thought you'd like that. Laughing

Of course all hardware companies are taking advantage. PC users today are total fucking idiots who will bend over and accept anything. Duh Duh Duh Tom's Hardware says it's good. Oh look PC Magazine says it's worth it! Oh I better go buy buy buy!! Or you remember Stumpus, captain fucking ego goes and replaces still good hardware just so he can gloat somewhere.



So Stumpus...

Except something like a $650-750 1080Ti is actually ready for 8K since it plays 4K exceptionally well so it will last a few years OR you just keep your rez @ 4K for many more years as game tech progresses. I don't think we're in the business to replace high-end h/w every 2 years: its meant to last much longer keeping in mind what is good enough over a period.

So, Intel and AMD wont make a driver of their own to support a potential buyer that doesn't want to buy a new windows? lel
