Microsoft's next Windows 10 feature update will release in October

Microsoft has announced that their next Windows 10 feature update will be released in October, bringing 'Redstone 5'  to the masses under the 'October 2018 Update" name. 

This feature update will make several changes to Windows 10, adding improvements to security, the company's Edge browser, and changes to the OS' design scheme. 

One of the most significant changes is additional support for ARM-based chipsets, most notably the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850, which offers LTE connectivity and compute on a single, low-power SOC. This update will enable the creation of future "Windows on Snapdragon" devices, which are said to offer up to 25 hours of battery life in thin and light form factors.

Other changes include improvements to Windows 10's "Dark Mode", by adding support for this feature to the Windows 10 file explorer. On top of that, Windows 10's Game bar will be updated to include performance stats and other new features. 

Microsoft plans to release more information about their Windows 10 October 2018 update closer to its release. UL Benchmarks has also confirmed their plans to release a new Ray Tracing benchmark around the launch timeframe of this new update, giving the world one of its first Ray Tracing performance measuring tools.

oh sure......they will "fix" other things and then break a thousand other things. Typical Microsoft garbage. Hell the last version of Windows 10 still insists that I have an i7 3770k....which I do NOT....I have an i5 7600K. Reported it to M$ and they will not confirm the bug.



If it wasn't for gaming I would erase Windows forever.Quote

Software has gotten so big and complex it's inevitable that it contains bugs. There's no perfection here.Quote

It's just an inherent part of programming people forget that humans aren't perfect and expecting perfection is ignorant. You tend to spend more time debugging than you do actually writing code.Quote

I bought it. It's mine now and I would be extremely happy if they would allow me to choose which updates to install...

And yes, I also keep it on my PC for gaming only.Quote
