We knew Windows 10 was arriving this summer, but now there may be a more specific release date thanks to information from computer processor-maker AMD.
In the company’s earnings call last week, AMD CEO Lisa Su noted “the Windows 10 launch at the end of July.”
“What we also are factoring in is, you know, with the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching sort of the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory build-up,” she said.
While the late July launch is not confirmed by Microsoft, Su’s comments are certainly worth noting given that AMD is building hardware for Windows 10. Microsoft previously said its latest version of the Windows operating system would release “this summer” in 190 countries and 111 languages.
Windows 10 will be free to anyone who has a copy of Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. We should learn more details about Windows 10 next week at Microsoft’s BUILD conference in San Francisco.
