In other news, there’s Atari announcing that it will bring its VCS console to public retail markets, Dell’s eGPU hardware being discontinued, the Steam Hardware and Software Survey for May 2021, and more.
This week, we can finally look forward to official news on the long-brewing Windows 10 update, code named Sun Valley, as Microsoft has officially named an event where it will disclose major changes coming to Windows. We also have major news in the form of TSMC’s Technology Symposium 2021, and a new lawsuit against Dell, targeting alleged false advertising for its Alienware Area-51M R1 laptop.
At GN, we’ve focused on Computex 2021 coverage, which includes Intel’s new products, AMD’s 3D V-Cache and FidelityFX SuperResolution, and more. We’ve also started digging into RTX 3080 Ti coverage, which so far includes a proper review and our usual teardown.
As we’ve mentioned before, Microsoft is brewing a substantial update to Windows 10 under the code name Sun Valley, and it seems the company is finally ready to take the wraps off of what that update entails. Microsoft has announced an event for June 24, where it will detail “the next generation of Windows.”
We know that, to some extent, Sun Valley is a substantial overhaul of the desktop and user interface. Among a new Start menu and Taskbar, we’ve already seen refreshed icons for Windows File Explorer. There’s reportedly also going to be other UI changes, and new fluid animations, among other things.
Beyond the UI, Microsoft is also reportedly set to completely overhaul the Microsoft Store to allow third party apps and commerce inside the store, as well as adjusting the revenue cut it takes on games and software.
These changes may also be enough to prompt Microsoft to trot out a new numbered version of Windows, presumably Windows 11. Teases from Microsoft continue to allude to the number 11, as can be seen in a tweet from Microsoft (note the light shining through the logo looks like an 11). Some have also pointed to the start time of the event: 11 AM ET. Moreover, Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi tweeted that he hasn’t “been this excited for a new version of Windows since Windows 95!” Obviously, the keyword there is “version,” and it’s the first time we believe anyone at Microsoft has mentioned a new version as opposed to an update.
