In recent days, there has been a lot of speculation about what hardware will be compatible and incompatible with Microsoft's new Windows 11 operating system. Microsoft apparently dropped the TPM 2.0 blockbuster last week, driving Windows users into a frenzy to study what TPM is, whether their PC supports TPM, and how to enable TPM 2.0 in the BIOS.
Fortunately, manufacturers have caught on to this and have started listing compatible motherboards in an attempt to make your life easier. The first to do this seems to be Asus, which released a comprehensive list of motherboards that are compatible with Windows 11 and TPM. ASUS
has also recently updated its FAQ to include answers on Windows 11 motherboard compatibility.
Before looking at the list of supported motherboards, it is worth mentioning the disclaimer issued by Asus along with the list:
"Windows 11 has not been officially released, and the Insider Preview version may have stability issues because it has not passed the official version hardware qualification and verification. Installing or upgrading to Windows 11 Insider Preview or any third-party software is at your own discretion and at your own risk. You will be fully responsible for system damage or data loss caused by this activity. ASUS is responsible for any loss or damage related to the use of Windows 11 Not responsible.”
This is the case with any major new operating system updates, so don’t worry too much. It is very likely that by the time Windows 11 successfully starts, many errors and compatibility issues will be resolved.
With this in mind, here is a list of all TPM 2.0 compatible ASUS motherboards:
As can be seen from the above list, ASUS has a large number of Windows 11 compatible motherboards for Intel and AMD processors. You can view our complete Windows 11 CPU compatibility list here.
This has been a hot topic in the past two weeks, and it is easy to understand why. In Microsoft's Windows 11 system requirements, it is clearly stated that TPM 2.0 is the basic requirement of Windows 11. However, not all motherboards support TPM 2.0. It is the compatibility list released by brands such as ASUS.
TPM 2.0 ensures full compatibility with Windows 11 BitLocker and SecureBoot. It is a secure encryption processor, and all computers are internationally recognized, although it is disabled by default on most major motherboards, causing problems when installing Windows 11. Whether or not TPM 2.0 will be a requirement when the official release date has not yet been determined, but it has indeed caused a sensation in many forums.
