Why AMD Athlon 200ge processor not supported for Windows 11 ?

I have an AMD Athlon 200ge Processor which is an 64 bit processor clocks at 3.2 GHz, it has TPM 2.0 and supports Secure Boot. It has all the requirements needed for Windows11. Than why this processor excluded for Windows 11 Supported processor list ? If it meets all requirements mentioned than your team should add this processor for Windows 11 supported processor.

not-supported

Hi @SaddamShaikh-1468,

You'll find the list of supported AMD processors over here:

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

Do note that the list of supported CPUs may not yet be final, so more CPUs may be added later on.

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:
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_11


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


Best regards,
Leon

My understanding is that AMD Zen 1 Chips meet the security requirements but do not meet the capability requirements from the targetted instruction sets for the Windows 11 Kernel.

Windows 11 is designed to utilize as much of the processor innovation made in the last decade as possible and during testing, Microsoft found that Zen 1 Chips were up to 4 times less stable with the Windows 11 Kernel than Zen 1+ Chips as certain instruction sets were not as mature in their implementation and as such Microsoft made the decision for both older Intel and AMD CPU's to limit them to generations where the instruction sets were more stable.
