Aside from the RAM and hard drive requirements for Windows 11, Microsoft later revealed that one of the necessary hardware components you will need is a motherboard with a TPM 2.0 module. Never heard of it before this? There’s a good chance you’re not alone, and if you’re wondering if your PC will support the upgrade, ASUS has you covered.

If you happen to own a PC with an ASUS motherboard, the company has published a list of motherboards that they claim will support Windows 11.

Intel:

  • C621 Series
  • C422 Series
  • X299 Series
  • Z590 Series
  • Q570 Series
  • H570 Series
  • B560 Series
  • H510 Series
  • Z490 Series
  • Q470 Series
  • H470 Series
  • B460 Series
  • H410 Series
  • W480 Series
  • Z390 Series
  • Z370 Series
  • H370 Series
  • B365 Series
  • B360 Series
  • Q370 Series
  • C246 Series

AMD:

  • WRX80 Series
  • TRX40 Series
  • X570 Series
  • B550 Series
  • A520 Series
  • X470 Series
  • B450 Series
  • X370 Series
  • B350 Series
  • A320 Series

According to the company, these are the motherboards they claim will support Windows 11, and they have also provided users with instructions on how to enable TPM 2.0 if they haven’t already.

We know that this has created quite a bit of confusion amongst Windows users who might be hearing about this feature for the first time, although it seems that based on what most people are saying, a good majority of computers bought in the past few years should support Windows 11 and come with the TPM 2.0 module, it’s just that in some cases, users might need to enable it manually.

Alternatively if your computer doesn’t have a TPM 2.0 module, the good news is that you don’t need to buy a new motherboard. You can just buy the module and install it manually. That being said, Windows 10 is expected to continue to see support until 2025, so you don’t have to upgrade to Windows 11 right away if you don’t want to.
