Officially, Microsoft has said that Windows 10--the company's next operating system--will launch sometime this summer. But now, a more specific release window has emerged by way of comments from AMD president and CEO Lisa Su.
"What we also are factoring in is, with the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we're watching 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.
Of course, Su's comments might not be accurate. But, as The Verge notes, AMD--a major worldwide force in the PC space--is likely well-informed regarding Microsoft's rollout plans for the new operating system.
A Microsoft representative told GameSpot, “Microsoft has said Windows 10 will launch this summer. We have nothing additional to share."
Windows 10 features a new Xbox gaming app, which will not require Xbox Live Gold. Meanwhile, another marquee gaming feature for Windows 10 is that it will allow Xbox One games to stream to PCs and tabletsrunning the new OS. In addition, Windows 10 supports cross-platform play, starting with Fable Legends.
Predecessor Windows 8, released in October 2012, was controversial in that it introduced a touch-focused tile design that was markedly different to Windows 7. Microsoft addressed these criticisms with frequent--and substantial updates--including Windows 8.1.
The company isn't starting over with Windows 10, but Microsoft appears to be taking a more traditional approach with the new OS.
"We believe that, together with the feedback you provide us, we can build a product that all of our customers will love," Windows executive Terry Myerson said last year. "It will be our most open collaborate OS projects ever."
