    Just read this on an audio equipment restoration message board.

    If you are using a windows base machine you need to watch this.
    Microsoft has drawn an arbitrary line and declared that PCs and laptops with processors from only a few years ago (even 2018) won't work with Windows 11. This is crazy and Microsoft should be ashamed of itself.

    Windows 11 won't support Intel Core chips like the i3, i5, i7, etc that are older than the 8th generation or AMD Ryzen 3/5/7 processors before the 3xxx series. The Ryzen 3 3xxx only came out in 2019!

    I'll leave it alone as I've an HP Probook i5 laptop.

    Actually its another chip, a hardware authentication scheme, much like (gasp!) a key. Those older chips may not have one, but they can be purchased separately and added later. Still, one should be aware of the numbers behind the chip name, as the digits prior to the last 3 indicate the generation of the chips and that goes to crunching power. The intel chips are in the 11,000's now, or the 11th generation. It kept bothering me that my i5-650 was crawling like a snail. I thought all i5's were the same. Not close. Thats what I get for thinking.
