The Updated System Requirements for Windows 11

Microsoft has recently made significant updates to the system requirements for Windows 11. This update aims to ensure a smoother and better performance of the operating system on modern PCs. However, with the new system requirements, several older-generation Intel CPUs are no longer compatible with Windows 11. In this article, we will provide a list of the affected Intel CPUs and discuss the implications of these changes.

Intel CPUs That Don’t Support Windows 11 Anymore

Microsoft’s update to the system requirements means that they will drop support for various older-generation Intel CPUs. One major group affected by this change is the Intel’s 8th-Gen Xeon processors, as reported by While this change may not impact most users, it is crucial for those who are using the affected CPUs to be aware of the compatibility issues.

  44. Intel Xeon E-2388G

It is important to note that these CPUs are primarily used in workstation-grade environments and servers. They are not part of Intel’s CPU lineup intended for regular consumers. Therefore, even if you have an older processor, the chances are that it will still work fine with Windows 11.

Additional Safeguards against Workarounds

In addition to dropping support for the aforementioned Intel Xeon CPUs, Microsoft has implemented measures to prevent installation of Windows 11 on unsupported hardware. According to a report by, users are unable to use bypass methods to install Windows 11 on older systems, such as those equipped with Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs.

Looking ahead, it is possible that Microsoft will further tighten hardware restrictions in future updates to Windows (maybe with Windows 12). This could potentially result in the complete blockage of OS installation on older CPUs. To stay informed on the latest developments, you can read more about the upcoming Windows 12 update here.
