Many features were announced by Microsoft at a conference last Thursday, but it revealed a surprise that the new Windows 11 system will not support some computers.
Most notably, Apple's Intel Mac devices, because the Windows operating system was known to be able to run on many different devices, but it seems that Microsoft chose this year to increase the hardware requirements to run the new system.
According to the Nine to Five Mac website, the capabilities required by the Windows 11 operating system must be available in the device used on it, including a 64-bit processor at 1 GHz or faster, and at least 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, DirectX 12 compatible graphics card, TPM 2.0 support.
The crisis here is related to the support of the TPM chip, which is a chip built into the logic board or computer firmware to ensure the integrity of the operating system, similar to what the Secure Enclave does on Mac devices.
The site explained that the problem is that not every computer has a TPM 2.0 chip since it was introduced in 2014, knowing that Microsoft has previously announced a list of every processor that can run Windows 11, since 2017.
With regard to Mac computers, users of this type of device will be unable to run the Windows 11 operating system, even if the Mac has the latest versions of Intel processors.
This is because Apple has not previously released any of its devices with support for the TPM 2.0 standard, including Intel Mac devices, and in the event that the user of the device tries to run Windows 11 on devices of this type, the result will be receiving a message stating that this computer It cannot operate the system.
