Windows 8 build 7792 is a build of Windows 8. It was first referenced in the NVIDIA source code leak from 28 February 2022 in the file dev\gpu_drv\stage_rel\drivers\tegra\platform\drivers\network\wifi\athlib\host\hif\sdio\buildchk_win8_arm.log - the file is a compilation log for a Wi-Fi driver and references this build's Driver Development Kit as an include directory.

A low-quality camera recording of the build, which showed off a DirectX 9 sample application running on a Nvidia Tegra 2 development kit, was later uploaded by former Windows division president Steven Sinofsky on 30 October 2022 along with additional footage of build 7867 (fbl_core1_kernel_npc_ext) in issue 104 of their account of events during his time at Microsoft, titled Hardcore Software.[1][2]

This build was also mentioned in the readme_please_read.txt text document from the original upload of build 7746.
