On unsupported hardware you can use Windows 11, but you can’t

This is an important upgrade for Windows 11. But Microsoft wants you to have the gear you need before you can get here. The firm has officially posted a blog post outlining Windows 11 system requirements. It sets out the processors and systems that are compatible with the new operating system while helping to remove some uncertainty from the company’s original hardware recommendations.

The system requirements list from Microsoft includes a CPU, 4GB of RAM and a storage capacity of at least 1GHz or faster. Devices will require the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0, which supports security clearance and may be accessed on the most recent motherboards.

The list of Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm processors available in Windows 11 covers the common Intel 8th Gen framework and other CPUs. More importantly, there is an overall chart of Gen Intel Core Kaby Lake and the AMD Zen CPUs of the first generation, which are a little surprising, given that these SoCs were introduced respectively in 2016 and 2017. Intel Core X-series processors, Xeon W-series and especially the Core i7-7820 HQ, the CPU which is utilized in Microsoft’s own Surface Studio 2, are the only Intel CPUs of 7th generation that are compatible.

The cutting block did not make the AMD’s first-gen Ryzen processor. “After thorough analysis of the first generation of AMD Zen CPUs in collaboration with AMD, we found that the supported CPU list was not being added,” Microsoft says. It says the devices “with a 52% greater crash in kernel mode” did not meet minimum hardware requirements for Windows 11, whereas those that fulfilled minimum hardware requirements “were experienced with 99.8% crashfree.”

You may still install Windows 11 with a slewing of software if you fall into the list of devices that are officially not supported. Either maintain your Windows 11 version in the Windows Insider program or generate and install a Windows 11 ISO file directly. However, take into account cautions by Microsoft about how the system works.

The Minimum System Requirements were agreed on by Microsoft to emphasize support for such things as current DCH drivers and TPM safety. It’s a bigger step towards modernizing Microsoft’s old legacy software. Consolidation of the Windows platform should contribute to improved global dependability.

A new version of the PC Health Check software is released by Microsoft before you are updating to assist you in determining whether your device is suitable for Windows 11. The software is presently being tested with Windows Insiders users, however in the next few weeks it should be implemented.
