The Taiwan OEM is a giant when it comes to making PC components and accessories, so they have a wide range of motherboards. Now, do you own one and curious to know whether it will support Windows 11 or not? Here we will answer your questions.
Eligible motherboards will not require any settings changes and with latest BIOS update on selected motherboards you can use Windows 11. Already many of the ASUS motherboards on Intel and AMD platforms are ready for the new operating system preview.
If you are not a tech savvy person the support for Windows 11 Insider Preview can also be directly enabled via existing settings, without even updating the UEFI BIOS. Here’s the official press release shared by ASUS India:
Mumbai, India, August 4, 2021 — ASUS today announced that the latest Windows 11 Insider Preview build can now be installed on many existing ASUS motherboard models. Installation can be achieved after applying the latest UEFI BIOS update from the relevant ASUS support page, or by manually enabling the required function in the existing UEFI BIOS.
Following either of these two methods will empower adventurous users to try the beta version of the forthcoming operating system, allowing them to experience the future of Windows and PC computing – whetting appetites for the full Windows 11 experience later this year.
