In terms of hardware compatibility, Windows is relatively good. At least consumers are willing to upgrade to Windows 10 on most devices.
However, this situation has changed in Windows 11. As Microsoft adjusted the hardware compatibility requirements, many PCs are no longer compatible with Windows 11.
In addition to the incompatibility of many consumer devices, many enterprise devices are also incompatible. IT management company Lansweeper investigated this and the situation is not optimistic.
The survey shows that 52% of enterprise devices are not compatible with Windows 11. The main reason is that many devices do not include TPM security modules.
The survey shows that 44.4% of the workstation devices in the interviewed companies meet Microsoft’s CPU requirements, and 52.55% of the workstation devices meet the Trusted Platform Module requirements.
However, the device must meet all the hardware conditions to be compatible with Windows 11, which means that only 44.4% of the devices can be upgraded and run.
Whether it is a trusted platform module or a processor, if it wants to be compatible, it needs to be replaced, which means that if a company wants to upgrade, it may cost more.
In addition, Lansweeper also sorted out the trusted platform modules of workstations and servers. The survey showed that most servers do not support security modules.
The physical machine in the server supports slightly more than 5% of the security module, and the virtual machine support rate is also less than 1%. It can be seen that TPM has become the biggest obstacle for enterprises.
The above data is from the survey results of 60,000 companies and more than 30 million corporate devices. The accuracy of the survey conclusions should be very high.
