    Unhappy Windows 10 i7 support

    The 6/18/2015 News Letter mentioned that Win 10 doesn't currently support the i7 processors. Will it ever? Has MS deemed the i7 obsolete? Is any more info available on this subject?

    That comment referred to the compatibility-checking tool - for the i7 CPU, it got it wrong. The i7 is supported.

    There are also reports of issues with the Win10 compatibility-checking tool. It has erroneously warned some users that their systems would not support Win10. If you've overclocked your computer, the compatibility test won't run properly. If you've disabled Internet Explorer, you'll need to re-enable it for the Windows 10 upgrade. Also, if you're running an Intel Core i7 processor, the compatibility system reports that the CPU is not supported.

    That processor is going to be around & fully supported for quite some time. Never believe ANYTHING that is in beta .

    That's a relief. I thought it odd that MS would choose to not support a processor that is still very much in production. I use 1 now and am planning on a second. I have a spare Asus P6X58D-E with a 1st generation i7 processor and 8 to 12GB of the appropriate RAM. Just waiting on the spare time.
