Welcome to the seventh 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?

Question. Is SwiftKey going to be available in Windows 11?
Will there be a Surface Go on Arm? Would be nice to have a mini surface that has great battery life without the sacrifice of performance.
Agreed! The Surface Pro X is much faster than even the high-end Go 2. I thought x86 would be a problem with the Pro X but it really hasn’t been for my esoteric needs.
If you don't mind Chrome OS, there is a new tablet that is basically what Surface Go ARM should've been, called HP X2 11.
