Windows 11 will come to older gaming PCs but won’t get official support from Microsoft

The road leading to Windows 11’s October 5 release date is one paved with promise and frustration. Every advancement the OS offers over its predecessor, such as support for Android apps and its implementation of Xbox’s excellent ‘auto-HDR’, is marred with perplexing system requirements and even more bewildering messaging from Microsoft. However, following an investigation made by The Verge, it appears that unsupported CPUs may be able to run Windows 11 but with a hefty catch.

TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 2.0 is the core culprit of the confusion surrounding Windows 11’s system requirements. In an effort to make the OS more secure, Microsoft has withheld the ability to install Windows 11 on any system with a CPU that doesn’t support the security standard.

Yet, when installing the latest Windows 11 beta on unsupported hardware, a new step in the installation process appears. This prompts users to accept that installation of the OS is ‘not recommended’ and that their PC will ‘no longer be supported and won’t be entitled to receive updates.’
