sgamet | New processors no longer supported on Windows 7 and 8.1

Users of new processors running on Windows 7 or 8.1 are reporting that they are no longer receiving security updates (thanks, Arstechnica!). This move may not come as a big surprise, because Microsoft had already annouced its plans to block updates for operating systems older than Windows 10 on the grounds of unsupported hardware. Still, it might hurt to think that you may be missing some important Windows updates only because you own a badass CPU. Either that or you move to Windows 10 (which, incidentally, is no longer free).

This error message may have surprised some unexpecting Windows 7 and 8.1 users.

Which processors are we actually talking about? Here
