Last month, a document had surfaced on the internet which suggested that Intel and Microsoft could be limiting Wi-Fi 7 support to Windows 11 and newer. This document was a product specification sheet that mentioned Windows 11, Linux, and ChromeOS in the supported operating systems list, which led us to speculate that Windows 10 may not be supporting the newest Wi-Fi standard.

However, that is not going to be the case it seems as Intel has now confirmed Wi-Fi 7 support will be coming to Windows 10 as well. Although the company did not make any official explicit statement regarding this, the firm has listed two of its Wi-Fi 7 module specs on its website: the Intel® Wi-Fi 7 BE200 and the Intel® Wi-Fi 7 BE202, codenamed Intel's Gale Peak 2 and Misty Peak. Both of the devices are featuring Windows 10 support alongside Windows 11 and Linux. Interestingly, there is no mention of ChromeOS this time.
