Is this the new world? Gigabytes is one of the first companies to jump on the Windows 11 bandwagon, with the hardware maker having confirmed that its products are fully prepared for the new OS.
Motherboards, more specifically.
The company says that Intel X299, C621, C232, C236, C246, 200, 300, 400, 500 lineups, as well as AMD TRX40, 300, 400, 500 mother boards are ready with TPM 2.0. This means that they can pass the verification checks in place for the new operating system and allow it to run flawlessly.
The words from Gigabyte:
“GIGABYTE Ultra Durable Motherboards are not only known for their world-renowned durability, but also play a leading role in product design, especially when it comes to the TPM 2.0 support in the BIOS. Lots of GIGABYTE Intel and AMD motherboards can pass the TPM 2.0 verification of the Windows 11 by simply enabling the TPM-related function in the BIOS, on which Intel X299, B250 chipset and above platform will be the Platform Trust Technology (PTT), and fTPM function on the AMD AM4 and TRX40 motherboards. By this advanced BIOS setting, GIGABYTE motherboards can pass the TPM 2.0 verification of Windows 11 to prevent TPM 2.0 support becoming an issue to users during their system upgrade.”
Good, I guess.
Microsoft, for its part, is standing firm on the TPM 2.0 requirement for Windows 11, even in the face of intense criticism from the community. And it seems like hardware makers are joining in the party, unveiling their wares that are certified for use with the new OS.
Expect more of this, soon.
