Windows 10

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.

We'll likely have more details (on not only Windows 10, but Project Spartan as well) at Microsoft's BUILD event later this month.
