Intel quietly announces information about Windows 12 – Frandroid

During a conference, Intel talked about its future and in particular its sales in 2024, which look promising thanks to … Windows 12.

Windows 12 will be big for Intel in 2024. At least that’s what Intel CFO Dave Zinsner said at the Citi 2023 Global Technology Conference on September 6, 2023, the transcript of which is available online.

In front of an audience of analysts, the Californian company’s CFO was enthusiastic about the coming year and the sale of Meteor Lake, its fifteenth generation of processors. “We actually think 2024 will be a good year for customers, especially because of Windows Update,” he explains. He continued: “We still believe the installed base is quite old and in need of a refresh, and we believe next year could be the starting point for that refresh given the catalyst of Windows.”

Of course, the name Windows 12 isn’t mentioned directly, but “Windows Update” shouldn’t be a simple semi-annual update to encourage the public to buy processors. In addition to the multitude of leaks about Windows 12, it seems that Intel is talking about the future major update of the Microsoft operating system.

The Windows 11 reminder

To confirm this, Dave Zinsner reminds us that Alder Lake was an important part of its launch. The twelfth generation of Intel processors accompanied the arrival of Windows 11 and it was necessary to have the latest version of the operating system to take full advantage of the advantages of the chip and in particular its thread scheduling system (Thread Director).

Meteor Lake is already shaping up to be a crucial generation for Intel and it wouldn’t be surprising if Windows 12 was a requirement to take full advantage of it.
