i7-6820HK CPU support for Windows 11

Like many others I have a Gaming Laptop with a still powerful i7-6820HK; however whilst Microsoft windows 11 supports a vast list of Intel processors the list is missing the i7 6xxx and 7xxx series. will this be addressed in future updates?

Hi @AH-5837,

I highly doubt that there might be any addition of processors as supported in near future. You can use the feedback hub to raise this issue.

Some of the 7th generation processor and all 8th generation Intel processor are supported for Windows 11. It seems your Intel i7-6820HK is not in the list and it might not support the Windows 11.
