Microsoft announced Windows 11 yesterday. If the deployment of this new operating system did not take place before the fall of 2021, you can now test the compatibility of your system. It’s not that easy.

The newly announced Windows 11 will be officially unveiled next fall at a conference hosted by Microsoft. Second, by updating first on newer computers and then on Windows 10 equipped computers. In the meantime, several test versions will be offered on Microsoft’s Insiders channel. The first beta version will be available starting next week.

In the meantime, you can test the compatibility of your Windows 10 system with the new operating system now codenamed Sun Valley. Microsoft provides a tool for this Must be installed on Windows 10 system. Rather basic, it answers the question of yes or no. The computer in which these terms are written is declared inappropriate without illustration. However, it is the latest and most well-equipped (Raison 9 3900X, X570 chipset and 64GB RAM).

We did not find any additional information in one of the hardware recommendations of Windows 11: You need 1 GHz processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB storage space and a DirectX 12 graphics card. To understand the problem may come from another point.

So you need to check if the system is benefiting from TPM 2.0. Our colleaguesHardware Hardware, It’s a “A cryptographic module that can store secrets and use them for authentication, encryption, and security.“To find out if it’s active, we can start Windows 10’s power shell in admin mode and type” get-tpm “. The first line (TpmPresent) will respond. If it’s negative, it’s the average person.

In fact, it is necessary to go to the motherboard’s BIOS to check if the functionality exists and, if necessary, activate it. On Intel processor motherboards, the reference to DPM may take the name PTT (which has nothing to do with the ancestor of Orange and La Post); On AMD processors, this may be TPM or fTPM.

On our motherboard for the AMD processor, for example, we had to enable the “Security Device Support” option to enable the “AMD FTPM Switch” option and the “DPM State” optional switch to “Enabled”. Following this manipulation, our system is now compatible. If all of these are sufficient for most technophiles, then we ask the majority of users serious questions: Determine if your motherboard offers the option, go to the BIOS and execute it … The average user should not do this with multiple manipulations.

We are now eager to see how this prerequisite will be formed, and if there can not be a break in accepting it massively when Windows 11 is released, it is planned, we remind you in the fall of 2021.
