Microsoft extends Skylake CPU support for Windows 7/8.1

Earlier this year Microsoft announced it would stop offering full support for Skylake processors on Windows 7 from July 17, 2017 as the software giant is urging consumers and businesses to upgrade to Windows 10.

Business clients did not like this policy so Microsoft made a few updates to its Skylake support policy, giving clients one year extra to upgrade to Windows 10.
Since then we’ve received feedback from customers at various stages of planning and deployment of Windows 10. Led by their feedback, today we are sharing a few updates to our Skylake support policy*:

  • To help provide greater flexibility for customers who have longer deployment timeframes to Windows 10, the support period for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 devices on Skylake systems will be extended by one year: from July 17, 2017 to July 17, 2018.

  • Also, after July 2018, all critical Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 security updates will be addressed for Skylake systems until extended support ends for Windows 7, January 14, 2020 and Windows 8.1 on January 10, 2023.
