Microsoft will prohibit the installation of Windows 11 on incompatible devices. Current Methods to Bypass RAM, TPM, and Processor Limitations Will Not Work

Published

Microsoft surprised many with Windows 11’s high demands on the hardware platform. For example, at the moment only Intel Core processors of the 8th generation and above are supported, as well as AMD processors on the Zen 2 architecture. The list of minimum requirements also includes at least 4 GB of RAM and a TPM 2.0 hardware encryption module. There are workarounds for the Windows 11 beta currently available to users, but Microsoft will close the workarounds in future versions of the OS.

This was discussed during the Q&A session on how to upgrade to Windows 11 and OS deployment tools for enterprises and companies. “We know it’s not good that some will not be able to run Windows 11, but it’s important to remember that the reason we [это] do, make devices more productive and safer than ever before “, – told Microsoft.

Microsoft does not want administrators or regular users to constantly think about compatibility and waste time booting Windows 11 in the event that the PC does not support it. Therefore, the company relies heavily on the automatic compatibility detection system – for which telemetry data will be used, and Windows Update will already inform you whether it is possible to install Windows 11 on a PC or not.

Group Policy won’t let you get around [ограничения] Windows 11 hardware. We will block the ability to update your device to an unsupported state because we really want to make sure that your devices will be supported and stay safe“, – explained in the company.

What does this mean in practice? Apparently, only those users whose computers will fully meet the final list of requirements for the new OS will be able to upgrade to Windows 11. At the moment, it is being specified. So, the list of processors supported by Windows 11 may include 7th generation Intel Core CPUs.

AMD recently promised that its new graphics driver will bring gaming performance up to 24%. This driver is already available and we have test results.

Unfortunately, the source did not test the games Crysis Remastered and Total War Saga: Troy, where AMD promised 24% and 17% growth, respectively. But even without them, the situation is generally clear.

As you can see, on average for 50 games, the increase was 2-3% depending on the resolution, which is completely imperceptible during the game. But still it is more correct to look at the results in specific games.

And there really is something to appreciate. If we talk about Full HD, then in Watch Dogs: Legion the increase was 12%, and this is the maximum figure. At the same time, in 2K resolution in the same game, the increase was already 17%.

Also, a noticeable increase was observed in Death Stranding, Apex Legends, The Witcher 3, Forza 5 and a number of other projects. If we compare the results with AMD’s promises, then in the same Apex Legends the company promised a 5% increase, but in fact we have from 6% to 9% depending on the resolution, that is, the result is even better. So, perhaps, in the same Crysis Remastered, the growth will be even more than the promised 24%.

Separately, it is worth highlighting Godfall, where the new driver, on the contrary, leads to a decrease in performance by 2-7%.

No AMD will not be the first to offer a

It looks like all the rumors about AMD’s dual-chip chipsets were wrong after all.

Recall that in recent days there have been reports that the X670 will be a chipset consisting of two chipsets on one substrate. But, apparently, a broken phone or a bad translation of some source data from some Asian language worked.

No, AMD will not be the first to offer a dual-chip chipset to the market.  Asus X670 Prime motherboard schematic showing two separate chips

In any case, as you can see on the diagram of the Asus X670 Prime mainboard, the chipset will indeed have two chips, but they will be completely separate. This is similar to the northbridge/southbridge circuit that was used extensively in the past, but in this case, according to the available data, the chips are exactly the same. The chipset chip is codenamed Promontory and is an ASMedia development.

Judging by the diagram, one of the microcircuits will be located directly under the video card slot, and for now we can only guess if this will lead to excessive heating.

Recall that AMD will present new chipsets at Computex 2022 the other day.

This is what the first motherboard for Ryzen 7000 processors

In a few days, AMD will introduce the X670E, X670 and B650 chipsets for AM5 platform motherboards designed to work with Ryzen 7000 processors. But today we can get our first look at such a board.

This is what the first motherboard for Ryzen 7000 processors looks like. ASRock X670E Taichi lit up on the Web

ASRock itself showed the X670E Taichi on video, however, the video has already been deleted. As the name implies, the board is based on the top X670E chipset, but technically it will not differ from the X670. Recall that both chipsets will be dual-chip, that is, they will consist of two identical chipsets on one substrate.

So far, we can say something about the board itself only by looking at the image. You can see two PCIe slots, four DDR slots, a processor socket, and what appears to be a passively cooled chipset. This gives hope that it will not heat up too much.
