Windows 10 feature updates would not be released to all PCs and Tablets. The recent rumour claimed that Windows 10 PCs with Intel Atom Clover Trail CPU is not going to receive the Creators Update or any future updates. Microsoft has now confirmed the reports. The company explained why the devices with Intel Atom Clover Trail CPUs are not part of the Creators Update roll out.
Microsoft has taken this decision because of the poor performance of Creators Update on these devices. As Intel is no longer updating the drivers for Atom Clover Trail CPUs. The devices would have the outdated driver and this will impact the operating system’s performance.
“They require additional hardware support to provide the best possible experience when updating to the latest Windows 10 feature update, the Windows 10 Creators Update,” explains a Microsoft spokesperson. “However, these systems are no longer supported by Intel (End of Interactive Support), and without the necessary driver support, they may be incapable of moving to the Windows 10 Creators Update without a potential performance impact,” Microsoft explained to The Verge.
Microsoft would continue to provide security updates to the affected devices till January 2023. If you own any of the affected device, it will remain stuck on the Anniversary Update.
