MSI Announces Full List of Windows 11 TPM 2.0 Ready AMD & Intel Motherboards, Also Lists Down Windows 11 Ready Pre-Built Desktop PCs
MSI has also announced the full list of AMD & Intel motherboards that are ready for Microsoft's Windows 11 operating system and its respective TPM requirements. The board maker confirms several motherboards dating back to Intel 100-series and AMD 300-series while also stating that older motherboards are currently pending TPM verification.
MSI Unveils Huge List of Windows 11 TPM 2.0 Compliant Motherboards Based on AMD & Intel Chipsets
MSI has not only listed down the motherboard chipset support but also listed down each individual motherboard variant that is ready for Windows 11 support. As per the manufacturer, all Intel 100-series motherboards and AMD Ryzen motherboards have TPM 2.0 functionality integrated within them. As such, you don't require any external TPM 2.0 module and only need to enable it through the BIOS. You can see the chipset and motherboard support list from MSI below:
|500 Series||Z590 / B560 / H510||10th / 11th Gen|
|400 Series||Z490 / B460 / H410||10th / 11th Gen|
|300 Series||Z390 / Z370 / B365 / B360 / H370 / H310||8th / 9th Gen|
|200 Series||Z270 / B250 / H270||6th / 7th Gen**|
|100 Series||Z170 / B150 / H170 / H110||6th / 7th Gen**|
This is NOT a Windows 11 compatible motherboard list, it simply means the motherboard BIOS supports TPM 2.0.

**Intel 6th/7th Gen and X-Series 9000/78xx processors are not on the list of Windows 11 compatible processors, as of 2021/07/01.
|500 Series||X570 / B550 / A520|
|400 Series||X470 / B450|
|300 Series||X370 / B350 / A320*|
|TR4 Series||TRX40 / X399*|
*Ryzen 1000 series and Ryzen Threadripper 1000 series (Zen1) processors are not on the list of Windows 11 compatible processors, as of 2021/07/01. Visit Microsoft for more Windows 11 information.

MSI further states that even older motherboards such as the Intel 9-series, Intel 8-Series, and X99 HEDT platform feature TPM 1.2 functionality through their respective processors (Haswell, Haswell-E, Broadwell, Skylake) are not mentioned in the Windows 11 support list. MSI is internally verifying support but it will be up to Microsoft to enable support for older chips. It definitely doesn't seem like a wise decision to block older CPUs when they have the necessary hardware capabilities to run the operating system without any issues.
In addition to DIY motherboards, MSI has also announced its full fleet of gaming and AIO desktop PCs which are ready with support for Windows 11. The full list can be seen here.
