Default Microsoft confirms no Creators Update for Intel Atom Clover Trail CPUs

After stories arose of failed attempts to upgrade such hardware to the Creators Update, Microsoft confirmed late Wednesday that any hardware device that falls out of the manufacturer’s support cycle may be ineligible for future Windows 10 updates.

Four “Clover Trail” processors (Atom Z2760, Z2520, Z2560, and Z2580) that have fallen into Intel's End of Interactive Support phase will be ineligible for the Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft confirmed. Instead, they’ll simply be offered the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, plus security updates through January, 2023, the end of the original Windows 8.1 support period.

The main reason for the problems appear to be related to driver issues with the chips' integrated graphics processors (IGPs) as those were made by PowerVR and not by Intel themselves, which is causing the driver issues.
