Microsoft will launch Windows 10 this coming July, according to AMD's CEO Lisa Su. The chipmaker executive revealed the launch timing for the next Windows OS during a recent earnings call.
According to a transcript of said earnings call:
"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."
Microsoft may be aiming for a summer release, but Su has provided a more accurate time frame as to when we can expect to see Windows 10 . The CEO notes that the software giant will take advantage of back-to-school promotions and campaigns when new hardware is picked up by those heading back into education for the next year. But July is just a handful of months away.
Now, it's worth mentioning again that this is not official confirmation from Microsoft, and so should be taken with a grain of salt. Things can change and internal release timings could be pushed back. That said, as a strong hardware partner with Microsoft, one would assume AMD has an insight to these sorts of things.
