In addition to the changes and improvements in terms of features and interfaces, Windows 11 is also famous for its relatively strict hardware requirements that users must meet if they want their PCs to run the operating system. new practices, especially on CPU. Therefore, it is not surprising that Microsoft always has to regularly update the list of current processors on the market that can be compatible with Windows 11 for users’ convenience.
At the end of May, the Redmond company announced the list of CPUs that support Windows 11, adding many new processor models from AMD (mainly X3D series) and Intel (mostly Raptor Lake (13th Gen)). .
It would not be worth mentioning if in the update list on July 25, Microsoft did not remove some Intel chips that were listed as supporting Windows 11 before, all of which are Xeon processor models. . The specific list is as follows:
The Xeon CPUs listed above are all developed on Intel’s Coffee Lake architecture. It should be noted that Intel’s 8th generation Core processor family, with desktop variants such as the i7-8700K and i5-8400, remains on the list of processors supported by Windows 11 .
It is still unclear why Microsoft has removed a series of Xeon processors from the Windows 11 support list.
