Although Windows 11 has no essential changes in the kernel, due to changes in security and other requirements, some hardware platforms that still seem to be strong are excluded, such as AMD’s first-generation Ryzen and Intel’s seventh-generation Core processors. Today, ASUS announced a list of ASUS motherboards and processors compatible with Windows 11.
According to the list published by ASUS, ASUS motherboard chipsets that can install Windows 11 include AMD 300/400/500 series, Intel 300/400/500 series, etc., as follows:
- AMD: A320, B350, X370, B450, X470, A520, B550, X570, TRX40, WRX80
- Intel: C264, Q370, H310, B360, B365, H370, Z370, Z390, W480, H410, B460, H470, Q470, Z490, H510, B560, H570, Q570, Z590, X299, C422, C621
In terms of processors, AMD supports Zen+, Zen2, and Zen3 architecture Ryzen 2000/3000/4000/5000 series, Athlon 300/3000 series, thread tearer 2000/3000 series, and Xiaolong 7002/7003 series.

Zen architecture Ryzen 1000 series, Xiaolong 7001 series, Intel Skylake 6th generation, Kaby Lake 7th generation family have been abandoned, although from the hardware, they have no obstacle to running Windows 11. It is said that Microsoft will add support for AMD’s first-generation Ryzen and Intel’s seventh-generation Core in the future, but it still does not plan to support it earlier. For the very critical TPM security module issue, ASUS also gave detailed guidance.
1. How to check whether the computer supports TPM 2.0
Open the Run dialog box (Win+R), enter tpm.MSC, and confirm. If the TPM management tool pops up, it means it is supported. If an error is reported, it means it is not supported or it is not turned on.
You can also enter the BIOS and see if there are TPM-related options in the advanced settings. For example, the ASUS motherboard is in advanced-trusted computing, and there is an option for TPM 2.0 devices.
2. How to enable TPM 2.0
On the Intel platform ASUS motherboard, find the PTT option in the advanced-PCH-FW settings and enable it. On AMD platform ASUS motherboard, find TPM device selection in Advanced-TPM settings, switch to Firmware TPM (Firmware TPM). Other brands of motherboards can refer to find similar options.
