Well, cheer up folks. The AMD Ryzen launch is imminent and we have some great news for some of our readers. At a recent event, AMD has confirmed that unlike Intel’s Kaby Lake, the Ryzen lineup of CPUs will fully support Windows 7 with drivers.
The folks at Computerbase report that AMD is hard at work with the drivers for the CPUs and confirm the old OS’s compatibility. This opens up all processor instruction sets for Window 7 as long as they are compatible.
Kaby Lake on the other hand will support HEVC / 10-bit encoding driver support.
