AMD CEO Lisa Su has claimed that Windows 10 could be seeing an official release by the end of this July.
While responding to a question asked during the company’s latest financial earnings call about its strategy regarding the new OS, Su said the following:
What we also are factoring in is, you know, with the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching sort of the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory build-up.
The latest figures tell a disappointing story about the company’s recent quarter. Revenue for Q1 was down by $1.03 billion, which is a decline of 17 percent from the last quarter and is a 25 percent loss year-on-year.
As for Su’s statement about Windows 10 releasing this July, there’s still no official confirmation about when the OS plans to release.
Last month Microsoft revealed that it plans to release its new OS this summer. E3 2015, which is scheduled to take place before that, would be an ideal spot for the company to further promote the technology of Windows 10 which is being touted to bring new advancements for gamers.
Microsoft has already exclaimed excitement over the new connection between Windows 10 and Xbox One, from which many titles (existing and upcoming) will feature cross-save/play.
While July does sound a bit too early, it’s possible that following in E3, Microsoft announces a late August or September launch. The OS will be free for the first year for all those who currently own a legit copy of Windows.
