which processors support windows xp

Question asked by tcs1752890 on Nov 17, 2015

Hi,

 

I need to upgrade my hardware but also need to continue with XP for a while. I was about to upgrade to a Gigabyte m/b with an A6 APU when I spotted worrying comments about needing Trinity or Kavira processors to run XP. I have struggled to get further info on this from the web, partly because of the complexity of the naming but also because nobody wants to know about XP anymore.

 

Can anybody tell me please which processors will support XP without unnecessary complication. I want to take my current HDD and simply plug it into a new motherboard/processor combination.

 

I will eventually be upgrading Windows but I guess there are no complications going forward, i.e. W7 or W10 on an A6/A8/A10.

 

Regards.
