For users whose hardware is not supported, Microsoft is also leaving benefits so that users can experience Windows 11. Microsoft provides a new Windows 11 update for Beta channel insiders. Along with the update, Microsoft has made several announcements to provide some details around Windows 11 that people are concerned about.
First, the company has not made many changes to the system requirements for Windows 11. Second, the company has added some 7th generation Intel processors to the list of supported processors. Unfortunately, older AMD processors are still not supported.
Microsoft will officially launch the Windows 11 operating system for users soon, about the requirements of the new system should be familiar to everyone, Microsoft is currently planning to support Intel’s 8th generation and AMD’s Ryzen 2000 series chips, and a small number of Intel’s 7th generation chips, and need to support TPM 2.0.
Fortunately, Microsoft has left a loophole for enthusiasts who want to upgrade their unsupported hardware to Windows 11. By simply completing the installation with Windows 11 ISO. The system will not be forced to check the hardware, in other words by changing the installation method, Microsoft will allow users to download and install Windows 11 on unsupported hardware, but users will be notified that the upgraded device will be unsupported and all compatibility consequences arising are the responsibility of the customer.
Microsoft already allows users with unsupported hardware to install Windows 11 through the Insider program, which will continue to run after the launch of Windows 11. So technically, users with unsupported hardware can continue to run Windows 11 through the program.
In addition to the general requirements, Microsoft has listed specific feature requirements for Windows 11, including a webcam, Bluetooth, and a touchpad for all upcoming laptops. Some manufacturers have already published lists of hardware that will be compatible with Windows 11.
According to XDA, Microsoft has provided further clarification, stating that users who upgrade to Windows 11 using an ISO on an unsupported CPU will not be entitled to updates, including security updates. In other words, the installation of Windows 11 on unsupported devices via ISO will be a one-time installation and subsequent bug fixes and new features will not be available, requiring users to reinstall with a new ISO.
