The highly-anticipated Windows 10 is apparently set to roll out at the end of July, at least according to AMD President and CEO, Lisa Su.
Microsoft unveiled several features of the upcoming Windows 10 operating system, teasing a number of neat treats the latest OS will bring to the table. The company did not, however, offer a specific timeframe for when the OS will be ready for release. Microsoft said that Windows 10 would arrive "this summer," but that's a pretty vague timeframe.
AMD CEO Lisa Su has now revealed a more specific timeframe for the Windows 10 release, inadvertently (or not?) noting that the latest version of Microsoft's OS should roll out at the end of July.
In a company earnings call, responding to various questions, Su replied to an inquiry from J.P. Morgan's Harlan Sur regarding existing AMD inventory.
"What we are also 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," Su noted.
Windows 10 is not yet a finished product, as Microsoft still has plenty of kinks to iron out before the new OS is ready for the general public, but it seems that it will all be ready by the end of July.
Su may have revealed this timeframe accidentally, without taking into account that Microsoft has not actually announced an official launch for Windows 10, or the info may just be based on speculation and expectations. It may also be a timeframe Microsoft is shooting for with the Windows 10 release, without being set in stone.
On the other hand, it would make sense for Microsoft to unleash its latest Windows 10 at the end of July, right before the lucrative back-to-school shopping season kicks off.
Windows 10 aims to bring a number of exciting features such as the Spartan browser, Cortana, Maps, and others, as well as unify Microsoft's platforms and serve as a universal OS for various devices with different form factors and capabilities. It remains to be seen whether Windows 10 will indeed roll out for the general public at the end of July, but Su's answer seems quite plausible.
