Windows 12 predictions

Is there going to be Windows 12?

Microsoft has not confirmed a release date for Windows 12 (or even acknowledged the next-generation operating system). It is not official, but there are many hints that Microsoft will release Windows 12 in 2023 or 2024. Here is some leaks and predictions material I have found on Windows 12.

Tomshardware reported back in July 2022 that Microsoft was purportedly moving its Windows desktop operating system to a three-year development cycle. Windows 10 was released to the public during the summer of 2015, while its successor, Windows 11, bowed six years later. Given Microsoft’s alleged tightened timeline, Windows 12 should arrive in 2024.

It is being expected that Windows 12 Beta Version will be out in March 2023 and full Windows 12 Version for all the configurations will be out by the mid of next year.

Intel leaker @leaf_hobby tweeted over the weekend that Windows 12 is listed as a supported operating system for Intel’s upcoming 14th-generation Meteor Lake-S desktop processors. @leaf_hobby subsequently deleted the tweet But, of course, Microsoft and Intel refuses to comment on leaks such as this one. By the time Windows 12 launches, Intel’s 15th generation Arrow Lake processors will be gearing up for production for release in late 2024 or, more likely, early 2025.

Microsoft is currently taking baby steps with AI with Windows 11, even though the company is hyping it as the “next big thing.” It is expected that AI is more in Windows 12. Windows 12, aka Next Valley, is expected to leverage the dedicated artificial intelligence (AI) engine introduced with AMD’s Ryzen 7000 family. Intel is also on track to implement similar hardware in its future Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake processors.

    Testaa uutta Windowsia – saat Microsoftilta fyysisen lahjan
    Microsoft haluaa houkutella käyttäjiä testaamaan uutta Windowsia.

    Vaikka Windows 11 on Microsoftin tämänhetkinen keskittymispiste, huhuilee horisontissa jo Windowsin seuraava iteraatio, joka saattaa olla nimeltään Windows 12.

    Microsoft on perustanut varhaisille uuden Windowsin testiversioille oman Canary-nimisen ohjelmistolähteen, johon yhtiö lisäilee levykuvatiedostoja testitarkoituksiin.

    Windows Latest -sivusto on muiden mukana saanut Microsoftilta sähköpostia, jossa yhtiö pyytää käyttäjiä mukaan testaushommiin. Toivetta ryyditetään lupauksella ilmaisesta, vähintään kahdeksan gigatavun usb-muistitikusta, jonka yhtiö lupaa toimittaa kahdeksan viikon sisällä tilauksesta. Tyhjä tikku on tarkoitettu Windows 12:n asennusalustaksi.

    Usb-muistitikkuja on tarjolla vain rajoitettu määrä
