A few of us wondered if microsoft would add some kind of kill switch to try and force new cpu's to not function on the older OS (which are still technically and legally supported).

All new cpu's are still x86 and x64 so they the same underlying type of cpu as older cpus.

According to this video microsoft have decided to block "all" updates on systems running either kaby lake or ryzen. Including security updates.
