    Windows 10 Stalls As Intel And AMD Fail To Provide Driver Updates

    This could slow things down considerably. Another good reason to wait and see what happens.

    Millions of PC owners hoping to upgrade to Windows 10 face disappointment as major chipset manufacturers Intel and AMD are delaying, or failing to provide, Windows 10 compatible drivers for their hardware. With Windows 10 planned to be the first of more regular upgrades to the operating system, hardware under two years old is facing obsolescence.

    According to Windows 10 upgrade documentation from major PC manufacturer Samsung, the list of unsupported hardware, and hardware that will only offer limited functionality, in Windows 10 includes some of the recent 5th generation Intel chipsets (Broadwell). A significant number of earlier releases from both AMD and Intel are also not available for those wishing to upgrade to Windows 10, according to Samsung.

    That is one of the major reasons why we so often sound like broken records constantly telling people to backup their system's
    with any potential upgrade.

    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    Build your own system; get everything you want and nothing you don't.

    Yup, and for some reason many do not anyway, unfortunately.
