Chipsets and Motherboards that Support Windows 11 [2022]

Written By Steven Arends

Windows 11 is the newest operating system from Microsoft Corporation. It offers a smooth Windows experience and a polished design with more apps and features.

But all the motherboards and chipsets don’t support this Windows 11 system. Because to install Windows 11, your motherboard must have a TPM 2.0 feature. All the motherboards and chipsets available in the market don’t have that feature.chipsets-and-motherboards-that-support-windows-11

There is some specific motherboard that supports Windows 11. After researching, I combined all the supported chipsets in this single article.

So don’t skip any part if you want to know about the compatible motherboards for Windows 11.

Let’s begin!

What Is TPM 2.0?

Trusted Platform Module, also known as TPM, is a Hardware-based security-related function. TPM is one kind of Crypto security processor that protects us from unauthorized entry from other malicious devices. Also, this feature helps us to generate, store and limit the use of cryptographic keys.

In simpler words, TPM 2.0 is the new upgraded hardware feature that blocks unauthorized entry. We can modify our cryptographic keys with the help of this feature that enhances our Windows system security.

But can Windows 11 Work Without TPM?

Well, you can bypass the TPM to upgrade your computer to Windows 11. But this bypassing is not ideal as there is a risk that some chipsets can malfunction due to the process. So you can understand Windows 11 can work without TPM though this is not our recommendation.
