Intel have dropped Windows 11 on us all and it’s caused a furore about ‘TPM’ or trusted platform modules.

Don’t worry, your PC isn’t about to become obsolete and you don’t need to buy anything. Even if it fails the Microsoft check, so long as your CPU is Ryzen 2000 (Zen 2) or newer, or Intel 8th generation or newer, it has TPM inbuilt.

We’ll show you how to activate it on all the main motherboard brands (Asus, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte), as it’s a little obscure on some of them. Once done, you can run the Microsoft health check application found here to see if your PC passes muster for Windows 11 – either to test the Beta now or for the future free upgrade.

Consult this list of Intel CPU compatibility or AMD Supported CPUs.

It is possible on older systems that TPM isn’t inbuilt. In those situations, it may be that you need to purchase a TPM 2.0 module that’s compatible with your motherboard, in order to upgrade to Windows 11. The specification and requirements aren’t set yet, so it would be wise to wait and see how the situation develops before buying any modules that you may not need, and will undoubtedly be marked up to take advantage of the confusion around Windows 11 Requirements.
