Are you looking forward to Windows 11’s release? If you own a computer that you bought or built in the past 1-2 years, there’s a good chance your computer should be all set for the update, but what if you own an older computer? There is some good news if your older PC is using an ASUS motherboard.

This is because the company has revealed that they are working on a beta firmware for its motherboard that could possibly allow older hardware to run Windows 11. For example with its STRIX Z270F motherboard, ASUS writes, “Support Windows 11 by default, no settings changes required in the UEFI BIOS.”

Given that this particular model supports Intel Kaby Lake processors along with Celeron G390 and Core i3-6098P series, it suggests that even if your computer isn’t officially compatible, this firmware could still allow you to install Windows 11, but we’ll have to wait and see how this works out.

However, we should note that Microsoft did recently state that they will allow Windows 11 to be installed on non-compatible devices, but the catch is that if you do, then you might not be able to receive updates. Windows 11 is currently set for a release on the 5th of October and will be a free update for users coming from Windows 10.
