October 20th could be the day we can get New Windows 11
Microsoft may be desired for an October 20 release date for Windows 11, not only by its marketing but by hints from internal sources. According to rumors, the publication that Microsoft is planning to release New Windows in October, as new laptops hit the market. All signs point to October 20, with that piece of Intel revealing last week’s event, along with other hints given in Microsoft’s latest Windows. As you can see in the image above, where time and date are given as 20th October at 11:11 AM.
For an eagle-eyed audience, Microsoft’s Newest Windows presentation hinted at a launch on October 20th. All images can be found on Microsoft’s Windows 11 Press site. An image of the redesigned Windows 11 Start menu shows a curious date in the lower right corner. October 20, with the time 11:11.
Upgrade from Windows 10 to New Windows 11
Walmart’s website says, that “free upgrade to Windows October 2021 when available” for some laptops currently on sale, such as the Dell Vostro. With that, all said, of course, Microsoft could push the launch of upcoming Windows any time within the holiday deadline. But given that the new machines come out around October, it’s likely that computer makers are betting on shipping Windows 11 on board.
Also, note that you will not be able to upgrade your existing Windows 10 PC to Windows 11 on the official launch day. In fact, according to Microsoft’s reply to a question about upgrades, the rollout of the upgrade to Windows 10 devices already in use today will begin in 2022, the first half of that year.
Who are eligible for Windows 11 Upgrades in their PC
Eligibility for Windows 11 has also been a hot topic to talk about. Microsoft has confirmed that only the 8th generation & latest CPUs will be eligible for New Windows. This does not include laptops and computers made before 2016 in most cases. This also includes devices recently manufactured by Microsoft. Such as the Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro and the $3,499 Surface Studio.
Surely, anyone who paid more than $3,000 for a computer would find the lack of Windows 11 upgradability. And unfortunately, for the Surface Studio, it’s impossible to open it up and replace it with a new CPU because it’s soldered to the motherboard. Whether Microsoft will bridge the hardware qualification gap remains to be seen.
Windows 11 also requires a Trusted Platform Module, or TPM, which must be embedded on all devices. TPM is a hardware security chip that protects users from hackers and malware. But TPM is a recent technological adaptation. Most new laptops have TPM on board.
And more recent CPUs use TPM, so that should cover more recent PC builders. But for some PCs, the purchase of a separate TPM chip and installation of the motherboard may be required.
Minimum Requirements to Install Latest Window
This is largely due to confusion about the company’s PC Health. Based on the rumors so far, Microsoft said, we acknowledge that it was not prepared to fully share the level of detail or accuracy you’d expect from us to meet the Windows 10 PC upgrade requirements. Why doesn’t it complete?
Instead of the PC Health Checkup, Microsoft has updated its minimum system requirements page for Windows 11 to better reflect what you need to get the new OS released and running on your PC. Here are all the minimum requirements for your PC to install Latest Windows.
- Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with at least two cores on a compatible 64-bit processor or SoC
- RAM: 4GB
- Storage: 64GB
- System Firmware: UEFI, Secure Boot capable
- TPM: Trusted Platform Module 2.0
