Yesterday, ASRock disclosed the list of their AMD and Intel motherboards which are compatible with Microsoft’s new Windows 11 operating system. As we already know, Microsoft requires the platform to support TPM 2.0, or Trusted Platform Module Version 2.0, so as for Windows 11 to work properly.
However, now ASRock announced that for those users who don’t have the TPM hardware module on their current motherboard, they can get the verification for TPM 2.0 by using either TPM on AMD’s series of motherboards or PTT on Intel’s series, both located in the BIOS.
