Microsoft Has Removed Multiple Intel CPUs from the List of Windows 11 Supported PCs

Instead of adding support for the upcoming 14th Gen Core processors, Microsoft has removed a bunch of Intel processors from the list of Windows 11-supported PCs. A new list published late last month on the 25th of July drops support for several Intel chips previously supported by Windows 11. Luckily for consumers, these are all Xeon server parts from the 8th Gen Coffee Lake family.

Interestingly, the 8th Gen Core Coffee Lake processors are still on the supported list, which means these chips lack some client-level features required by Windows 11 (or not). The list is as follows:

  • Intel Xeon E-2104G
  • Intel Xeon E-2124
  • Intel Xeon E-2124G
  • Intel Xeon E-2126G
  • Intel Xeon E-2134
  • Intel Xeon E-2136
  • Intel Xeon E-2144G
  • Intel Xeon E-2146G
  • Intel Xeon E-2174G
  • Intel Xeon E-2176G
  • Intel Xeon E-2176M
  • Intel Xeon E-2186G
  • Intel Xeon E-2186M
  • Intel Xeon E-2224
  • Intel Xeon E-2224G
  • Intel Xeon E-2226G
  • Intel Xeon E-2226GE
  • Intel Xeon E-2234
  • Intel Xeon E-2236
  • Intel Xeon E-2244G
  • Intel Xeon E-2246G
  • Intel Xeon E-2254ME
  • Intel Xeon E-2254ML
  • Intel Xeon E-2274G
  • Intel Xeon E-2276G
  • Intel Xeon E-2276M
  • Intel Xeon E-2276ME
  • Intel Xeon E-2276ML
  • Intel Xeon E-2278G
  • Intel Xeon E-2278GE
  • Intel Xeon E-2278GEL
  • Intel Xeon E-2286G
  • Intel Xeon E-2286M
  • Intel Xeon E-2288G
  • Intel Xeon E-2314
  • Intel Xeon E-2324G
  • Intel Xeon E-2334
  • Intel Xeon E-2336
  • Intel Xeon E-2356G
  • Intel Xeon E-2374G
  • Intel Xeon E-2378
  • Intel Xeon E-2378G
  • Intel Xeon E-2386G
  • Intel Xeon E-2388G

Different releases of Windows 11 have separate support lists, including one for 21H2 and another for 22H2. Since the operating system was rolled out, Microsoft has slowly added more processors to the supported list, not vice versa. It will be interesting to see if any of the 8th Gen client chips get the axe too.
