Following ASUS, the Taiwanese motherboard manufacturer ASRock has released a list of its own motherboards that are compatible with the upcoming Windows 11 operating system.

To get started, remember that the latest Windows 11 requires TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module). However, as it turned out later, TPM 2.0 verification can be passed without hardware solutions using the TPM firmware. Similar methods are implemented on both the Intel platform (PTT) and the AMD platform (fTPM). Thus, in theory, a hardware TPM 2.0 might not be required to install Windows 11.

ASRock Intel platform:

Generation:Chipset support:
*Intel 100 seriesZ170, H170, B150, H110
*Intel 200 seriesZ270, H270, B250
Intel 300 seriesZ390, Z370, H370, B360, B365, H310, H310C
Intel 400 seriesZ490, H470, B460, H410
Intel 500 seriesZ590, B560, H510, H570

*Actual support may vary depending on the official release of Windows 11 from Microsoft!

In order to find out if your processor supports Windows 11, ASRock recommends going to Microsoft’s official website.
