We are already aware of the upcoming version of Windows OS. It is just right around the corner. And according to a recent update, Microsoft will roll out Windows 11 version 21H2 on coming October 5th. This feature update will allow testers to join the Windows Insider program.
This story has been on the air for a while. Not that we are complaining, it is indeed a good step for giving enough room for the PC manufacturers like AMD, Intel, and Nvidia to get ready with their drivers. Intel and Nvidia had already released compatible drivers that will work both on Windows 10 version 21H2 (October 2021 Update) and Windows 11 version 21H2.
Earlier today AMD finally released the Ryzen driver version 3.09.01.140 that will support Windows 11. According to the given statement by AMD, this update will include all key features of AMD like Radeon Boost, Radeon Anti-Lag, Radeon Image Sharpening, etc.
However, due to the hardware limitation of Windows 11, not everyone will be able to run it. As of now if anyone is having Intel’s sixth or seventh-generation processors, and AMD Ryzen CPUs older than Ryzen 2000, they won’t be able to run Windows 11.
As of now, the extent of the limitation is not clear and neither does there is any information about changes in hardware compatibility. Therefore, most of us will need to wait a bit longer in order to have proper information once the OS is released.
