While Microsoft hasn’t said a single word about Windows 12, looks like it will be the next major version of the OS. As Microsoft mentioned several times, the future Windows releases will heavily use AI here and there. To be successful in this area, Microsoft needs support from its hardware partners, i.e. Intel and AMD. A leak from Intel's internal documentation mentions Windows 12 as the supported OS by the Meteor Lake desktop platform.
A well-known insider @leaf_hobby posted on his Twitter details about the future desktop processors of the Intel Meteor Lake line. According to him, Intel's internal documentation indicates that the new products will support the Windows 12 operating system. The VideoCardz website also added that Meteor Lake will receive 20 PCIe Gen 5 lanes.
Intel is working on the Meteor Lake product that will receive a block for processing artificial intelligence tasks, similar to that of AMD. In addition, the company will use the chiplet design for its processors for the first time, and the chips themselves will be manufactured using the Intel 4 (7nm) process technology. It is expected that Meteor Lake CPUs will be released in late 2023 or early 2024.
Intel's main competitor, AMD, recently released the Ryzen 7000 family of mobile processors. The company says it is the first x86 units in the world with a special block for processing artificial intelligence tasks. They may support Windows Studio Effects, including noise reduction and eye contact. Previously, these features were only available on ARM-based devices.
Microsoft and Intel declined to comment on the leak.
Another leak, this time by WalkingCat (@_h0x0d_) reveals that Microsoft is also referring to the next Windows version as 'Windows 2023'. There is a link to Microsoft's internal resource related to the new product. However, it may be something related to one of the "Moments" updates that the company issues to existing Windows 11 versions.
