Welcome to the fifth episode of Ask Windows Central, a show where we answer our communities most asked questions around Microsoft, Windows, Surface, Xbox, and the general tech industry. In today's episode, we answer questions about Microsoft's new Windows 11 CPU requirements, the future of HoloLens in the consumer space, and whether or not we'll be seeing a Surface Go 3 anytime soon.

This week's episode features the following questions:

  • What is Microsoft's reasoning behind its CPU requirements for Windows 11 and which chips will they be adding to the officially supported list?
  • When are we getting consumer hololens glasses powered by Windows 365?
  • Has the Windows Central team ever opted for non-Microsoft products for work and communication? (e.g. Slack instead of Teams, Google Drive instead of OneDrive, etc.)
  • What does Panos Panay's promotion to the SLT mean for the future of Windows and Surface?
  • Will there be a Surface Go 3 and what CPUs do you think it will have?
