Windows 11 does not support hundreds of Intel and AMD processors: Here are the supported processors

Microsoft officially introduced the highly anticipated Windows 11 yesterday. After the presentation, the company shared the list of Intel and AMD processors that support the operating system.

A few hours after yesterday's presentation, Microsoft shared a list of processors that support Windows 11. According to the company's information, the operating system will support the Coffee Lake family and newer processors, the first models of which were released in late 2017. A full list of compatible Intel processors is available on Microsoft's official website. Full List

The number of supported processors has decreased drastically

It is worth noting that the supported processors are significantly reduced compared to Windows 10. For example, the current version of Windows 10 works with 369 AMD processors, while Windows 11 supports 167 processors. On the other hand, Windows 10 supports 883 Intel processors, while Windows 11 is only compatible with 537 processors.

It is unclear whether the processor list on the company's website will be updated in the future. We know that Windows 10 can also be installed on computers with processors that are not on the official support list. It is unknown whether the same will be true for Windows 11.
