So a 4 year old computer is not compatible with Windows 11? Used Windows exclusively up until the Vista mess. Then switched to Mac. Glad my primary computer is a Macbook Pro...........

I have this processor also with high spec components, and have been able to enable TPM support in BIOS.

TPM 2.0 shows as active under Security Devices in Device Manager. So what is the issue? .. if my MSI MB supports TPM?

Hi @EmonIslam-6646,

Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 11 will only officially support 8th Gen and newer Intel Core processors, most likely because they have an integrated TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip.

Windows 11 Supported Intel Processors
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors

Please also note that Windows 11 is currently not supported in the Q&A forums, the supported products are listed over here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/products.

If you have any further questions, you may ask the experts in the dedicated Windows 11 forum over here:

If the reply was helpful please don't forget to upvote and/or accept as answer, thank you!


Best regards,

Hi LeonLaude,
Intel processors have had integrated TPM modules (PTT) since their 5th gen processors. Do you have any knowledge on the matter? Cause making unnecessary hardware upgrades to well built PCs doesn't make sense. In my opinion, it seems the most likely answer is that Microsoft wants customers to buy new PCs. This TPM issue makes no sense, if you want people to buy new models just be straight about it...

There's no more official information about this, but note that the list is not final and may be subject to change still.

In case your system doesn't meet the requirement for the Windows 11 and you are running Windows 10, open start and search for feedback and open Feedback Hub app and report this issue.

Hello,

As of this writing, i5-7500 is not in the list of compatible processors for Windows 11. You can continue using Windows 10 for now, until your processor is assigned as compatible for Windows 11. You can also drop your feedback to Microsoft via Feedback hub app.

Regards.

So my 5 year old HIGH SPEC Asus X75VS with i5 3230M is not going to be compatible with Win 11 ?
Why did I think otherwise ?
It is a 2.6Ghz processor with 2 cores and my laptop has 8 (read it.. 8 Gb RAM) - Again not good enough
How can I discover the version of Direct X installed ? - its not going to be up to date / good enough is it ?
I also am waiting for the bugging messages to start "TIME TO UPGRADE....." but I can't and shouldn't be forced to.
I believe that MS has made a mistake with the requirements for Win11 and it will be a failure !

That laptop is not really high spec at all anymore. The CPU is 8 years old at this point, and both Intel and AMD don't even release dual core CPU's anymore. 8 GB of RAM is also around the minimum that people have these days. Windows 10 released in 2015, so 6 years of support is a good life cycle in my opinion.

Microsoft is clearly in league with Intel - trying to con poor customers into buying new PC's (with Intel Inside) just so they can continue to use the latest version of Windows (although, up until last year - MS said that Windows 10 would be the last version of Windows) - explain that
As for the requirement for TPM
NEITHER my 5 year old HIGH SPEC ASUS X75VC or my 7 year old EVEN higher spec i7 desktop are compatible - how many devices are compatibke
I reckon that either MS reduces the requirement for TPM or this upgrade will be a Win Vista type FLOP !

Microsoft Said Win 11 would be the last version youll need to buy
You can install win 11 using iso file but your device won't be supported if your device has TPM 1.2 and a 64-Bit 1GHz+ Dual core chipset

Quit whining. See it as a gift and opportunity to run newer, faster devices.

Apples latest OS goes back to 2015. About as far back as Windows 11 goes. While I have an older Dell (and it’s quite slow on Windows 10) that I can’t update. I don’t complain as I wouldn’t if my MacBook Pro was too old to update. I’d either stay with the old OS or just buy new hardware.

These aren’t old cars that you cannot get parts for, they are computers. That said I don’t expect to be able to put a 2021 transmission in an older car.
