PC with new AMD and Intel processors if you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 will no longer receive OS updates

As you know, Microsoft did not allow the release of drivers that support the new AMD and Intel processors for Windows 7. To use the new CPU with this OS is possible, but you need to be ready for certain restrictions.

But Microsoft was not enough, and these restrictions have now been added new. As reported by the company, when using AMD Bristol Ridge and Ryzen, Intel the seventh generation (Kaby Lake) and SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and newer operating systems other than Windows 10, users will not receive updates and fixes for the OS.

In such cases, when you try to update the operating system will issue a warning that the PC used a processor that is not supported by this version of Windows. Again, this applies not only Windows 7 but also Windows 8.1. Of course, you can use the OS without updates, but the problem is in the position of Microsoft, which by all means tries to bring more users on Windows 10.
