What are latest/ last Gen of CPUs Chipsets (Mobile, Desktop/ Workstation) from Intel AMD still support & can run Win 8.1? As is or Mods w/o W10 push?

 

What are the latest/ last Gen of CPUs Chipsets (Mobile, Desktop/ Workstation) from Intel AMD still support & can run Windows 8.1? officially or with some tweaks? With MS & OEMs not crippling it to push Win 10?

 

I will be getting a laptop or 2 in 1 in the next year 2022 or so and I'll likely make the desktop into a Home machine/ Small NAS.

 

Currently and will continue using Win 8.1 as long as possible. Hate Win 10 but will run a side instance VHD for tiny things once in a while.

 

What are the best Laptops / Desktops I could look into?

 

PS:

What am I reading about Microsoft doing some blocking business?

Is that just Windows updates? I can manually download and do cumulative updates every 3 months so I don't mind.

What else are they (MS) fiddling with?
