One of the big talking points that surfaced shortly after Microsoft’s Windows 11 launch was the TPM 2.0 system requirement. It seemed not many were fully up to date with the ins and outs of TPM 2.0, sparking large controversy across various forums on which motherboards would (and wouldn’t) be compatible with the latest operating system.
ASRock is one of the latest brands to announce a detailed list of all its Windows 11 compatible motherboards – showcasing which will have the ability to pass the Windows 11 installation process.
ASRock Windows 11 Compatible Motherboards (AMD & Intel)
Microsoft dropped the TPM 2.0 bombshell shortly after the official unveiling a few weeks ago. Whilst this did come with a number of security benefits, it also sent Windows users into a frenzy trying to decipher which hardware would be compatible with the new operating system.
With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at what ASRock motherboards come equipped with TPM 2.0 functionality:
ASRock AMD Motherboards
|*AM4 300 series||X399, X370, B350, A320|
|*AM4 400 series||X470, B450|
|AM4 500 series||X570, B550, A520|
*The actual support may be varied based on official release of Windows 11 by Microsoft®.
For AMD users, you’ll have to enable the fTPM function via the motherboard BIOS. Simply follow the below steps to do so:
ASRock Intel Motherboards
|*Intel 100 series||Z170, H170, B150, H110|
|*Intel 200 series||Z270, H270, B250|
|Intel 300 series||Z390, Z370, H370, B360, B365, H310, H310C|
|Intel 400 series||Z490, H470, B460, H410|
|Intel 500 series||Z590, B560, H510, H570|
|Intel X299 series||X299|
*Intel® PTT is supported. The actual support may be varied based on official release of Windows 11 by Microsoft®.
For Intel users, you need to look for the PTT feature – Intel’s version of TPM. To enable it, follow these steps:
Windows 11 Compatibility
Remember, whilst not all motherboards will be compatible with Microsoft’s Windows 11, most newer variants from the last 5 years or so will be. That being said, always check whether your system is compatible with Windows 11 before making any changes to your system and BIOS.
So, ASUS, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte, and BIOSTAR have all listed their Windows 11 compatible motherboards – and it seems that plenty of chipsets will be able to install the latest Microsoft operating system.
