There’s been numerous confusion round Windows 11‘s TPM 2.0 requirement, however the producers of the best gaming motherboards at the moment are serving to to clear issues up a bit.

Brands resembling ASRock, Gigabyte, Biostar, MSI, and extra have compiled lists of motherboards that are suitable with the new requirement, with out the want for an exterior add-on that’s at the moment tough to supply. Many producers observe that whereas Microsoft lists a TPM 2.Zero chip as a requirement for Windows 11, the digital TPMs constructed into suitable AMD and Intel chipsets can bypass this requirement. This makes it appear very probably that Microsoft will officially support more aging processors on future builds of the new OS.

While ASRock particularly has an intensive listing of boards with older chipsets like the AMD 300 and Intel 100 collection billed as suitable with TPM 2.0, it notes that help from Microsoft could differ. Also, lots of the formally supported Intel and AMD CPUs are solely suitable with the newer chipsets.

Here’s a roundup of confirmed TPM 2.0-compatible chipsets:

If your motherboard is suitable and you understand how to put in the Windows 11 Insider construct, you’ll in all probability want to enter your BIOS to allow digital TPM because it’s often disabled by default.
