Today, ASRock has disclosed their AMD and Intel motherboards that are compatible with Microsoft's new Windows 11 operating system. It has been reported that TPM 2.0, or Trusted Platform Module Version 2.0, is necessary for it to be enabled for Windows 11 to work properly. If you do not have the TPM hardware module on your current motherboard, the verification for TPM 2.0 can be utilized through accessing either fTPM on AMD's series of motherboards, or PTT on Intel's series, both located in the BIOS.
Wccftech recommends checking your system first for compatibility before making any changes to your operating system so you do not lose important data.
