    CPU Support

    Hi all

    I was wondering if there is a list of CPUs supported by Win 10? I am currently running two desktops one with a Dual Core Pentium @ 2ghz and a Core Duo E8400 @ 3 Ghz. They both run Win 8.1 fine but was wondering if 10 will support them. I know min requirements are 1 Ghz CPU but there has also been mention of some CPUs not being supported.

    I have the latest on an Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 @2.20GHz, an older Dell Inspiron 530S Desktop that originally came with Vista.

    Incompatible CPU?

    I have the same E4500 CPU and on clicking the W10 ikon on my startbar it tells me My CPU is not supported, this CPU is well in excess of the published specs for W10 So I am wondering if this is accurate
    Can you tell me if the message unsupported CPU is a glitch or is it likely to be accurate?

    Thanks, Boyd (mactoshb)
