ASUS has provided new BIOS for some motherboards to support Windows 11

Asus has recently begun to provide BIOS updates for Windows 11 for many of its motherboards. At least most ROG motherboards have received this BIOS update.

One of the things that many people dislike about Windows 11 should be the requirement for TPM, which is the trusted platform module. Microsoft made it clear that upgrading or installing Windows 11 requires a motherboard that supports TPM 2.0, and TPM 2.0 was only launched in 2015, so millions of computers earlier than this point in time can only say goodbye to Windows 11. Not all motherboards launched after 2015 have TPM 2.0.

At present, most Asus ROG motherboards have related BIOS updates, and some PRIME series motherboards also have. On an FAQ page, Asus that its Intel platform has been added to TPM 2.0 since the 300 series motherboard, while the AMD platform has TPM 2.0 since the first generation of Ryzen, which is also the 300 series motherboard. As for the motherboards earlier than the 300 series, such as Intel’s 200 series and 100 series, there is no TPM 2.0. ASUS officially does not recommend users to purchase TPM 2.0 modules by themselves, because they may not work properly.

However, Microsoft has said before that it may relax the installation requirements of Windows 11 to the 7th generation Core processor and the 1st generation Ryzen processor.

Tom’s hardware also tried to compare the new BIOS this time and found that there is nothing different. For example, the PTT on Intel motherboards is still disabled by default. If users want to upgrade to Windows 11, they need to manually enter the BIOS to open PTT before proceeding to the next step.
