    I get that; so, what does 8th gen offer that 7th gen doesn't? I ask cause after getting my replacement SP5 from MS & doing a fully clean install of W11 after all the updates were don't I don't see why the SP7 isn't officially supported. It has TPM 2.0.

    Much of it has to do with the Spectre/Meltdown attack hardening...
