This allows us to focus on the depth of Windows and chips. Integration while maintaining the highest system reliability and compatibility with previous generations of platforms and chips."

However, users may remember that Microsoft had considered extending Windows 7/8.1's support for the Skylake (6th Generation Core Processor) support deadline. Initially, Microsoft plans to stop Windows 7/8.1 from supporting Skylake in July 2017, and to attract PC users with Skylake chips to upgrade to Windows 10. However, after a lot of users spit, Microsoft has postponed this deadline until July 2018. Earlier this month, things changed again and Windows 7/8.1 support for Skylake will be further extended to the end of the operating system support period (the end of the Windows 7 support period is January 2020, Windows 8.1 is January 2023 ).
