- To make sure that their devices can welcome the new OS without any issues, Asus released its first motherboard BIOS update.
- However, they aren't the only ones, since Gigabyte, Asrock, Biostar, and MSI have also released lists of supported systems that will work with Windows 11.
- Intel and AMD chipsets are supported, and these new BIOS updates will even automatically enable TPM on AMD and Intel systems.
- We will also show you how to manually turn TPM from BIOS, where this feature can also be labeled as PTT or PSP fTPM.
Even though the final build of Windows 11 hasn’t launched yet, Asus decided not to waste any time and prepare its motherboards for Microsoft’s upcoming operating system.
The hardware manufacturer recently deployed new firmware for multiple Intel motherboards that are Windows 11 compatible.
Asus provides Windows 11 Windows 11 Bios update
You might like to know, especially if you own an Asus device, that even though Asus’ firmware deployment plan is unknown, the majority of the Asus’ ROG motherboards have received the new firmware.
This also includes including some models from the Prime series. So it shouldn’t be long until devices from all the other series get theirs as well.
Needless to say that the firmware version number will vary from motherboard to motherboard.
Both Intel and AMD chipsets are supported, and these new BIOS updates will even automatically enable TPM on AMD and Intel systems.
TPM is by far the most controversial of the Windows 11 requirements, and it’s a change that caused some confusion after many realized their PCs didn’t have the option enabled in the BIOS.
Another thing that confused many people was the PTT or PSP fTPM name that TPM has in their BIOS settings.
What series will receive Windows 11 support?
Windows 11 support will be provided for Intel 500-series, 400-series, as well as 300-series motherboards. Also on the list will be AMD’s 500-series, 400-series, and 300-series motherboards.
Asus already confirmed in a FAQ that Intel 200-series and prior motherboards aren’t compatible with Windows 11.
Furthermore, the company discourages owners from purchasing a TPM 2.0 module for their motherboards since it may not work.
The popular manufacturer didn’t provide a detailed changelog of what exactly it changed in the new firmware, the only clue being the description of the firmware, which claims to support WIN 11 installed or upgraded.
You check their official web post that includes absolutelly all the Windows 11 compatible Asus motherboards, for more information.
Asus isn’t the only company to take important steps towards the future
As you might imagine, Asus isn’t alone in its motherboard support for Windows 11. Alongside them, Gigabyte, Asrock, Biostar, and MSI have also released lists of supported systems that will work with Windows 11.
And this is only the beginning, considering that the future Microsoft operating system will only officially be released towards the end of the year.
Other companies will surelly want to hop on the band wagon and provide support for the new OS.
How do I manually turn on TPM from BIOS?
Since Asus decided to provide this next level of OS compatibility, they were also kind enough to explain the process of manually enabling the TPM feature from BIOS.
Its a failry simple process and we will guide you through it. Here’s what you need to do:
Press Del when the ASUS or ROG logo appears to enter the BIOS.
- Once you attempt to make the change in the BIOS, a notification box will appear (see below). First click the OK button, then press F10 to save your changes and reboot your PC.
Enabling PTT will unlock a plethora of security-related options for you to play with.
