Microsoft has officially announced that it will not run its Windows 10 updates for the “unsupported” devices powered by Intel Atom processors, in the future. The company demands modified and updated hardware supports for the devices to hold the latest update.

Many personal computer manufacturing companies discovered that their Atom machines are not compatible with the updates of Window 10. Many of them are able to download the 3GB release, however, they could not proceed with the installation process.

Recently, Acer confirmed that a number of Atom computers are not supported by Microsoft’s Window 10 update, including:

  • Atom Z2760
  • Atom Z2520
  • Atom Z2560
  • Atom Z2580

Acer stated that it was struggling and working with Microsoft in order to address the reason behind the incompatibility, but it ended up with no solution. Microsoft adds in a statement regarding the Intel devices that they won’t be able to run on the new processors without up grading its essential hardware and driver updates. Also, it is impossible to deliver Creator Update to them without potentially harming the system’s functioning.

Microsoft explained in a briefing to ZDNet:

“These Atom chips require additional hardware support to provide the best possible experience when updating to the latest Windows 10 feature update,” however, these systems are no longer supported by Intel, and without the necessary driver support, they may be incapable of moving to the Windows 10 Creators Update without a potential performance impact.”

A crucial question emerges that the unsupported Atom computers will face a sudden demise when the new Window 10 updates approach the cyber world.
