Microsoft adds a few more CPUs to Windows 11 compatibility list, but the upgrade process still seems like a mess


Aug 28, 2021

Microsoft published a blog post on Friday adding several new CPUs to the Windows 11 compatibility list, but AMD’s first generation Ryzen processors aren’t among them. Microsoft stated that “after carefully analyzing the first generation of AMD Zen processors in partnership with AMD, together we concluded that there are no additions to the supported CPU list.” 

The CPUs that Microsoft did add are all from Intel’s 7th Generation Core series, but not the mainstream processors most PC gamers would likely have in their systems. All the CPUs are part of Intel’s workstation Xeon line except one, the Intel Core 7820HQ mobile CPU that happens to be in the Surface Studio 2 system that Microsoft currently sells.
