Microsoft Reaffirms Windows 11’s System Requirements (for the Most Part)

“Will this PC be able to run Windows 11?” seems like a relatively simple question, especially since Microsoft has announced that it doesn’t plan to budge on the operating system’s minimum specs. But reports indicate that the answer is more complicated than one might expect.

Microsoft said in June that Windows 11 would require a processor released in late 2017 at the earliest, a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 security chip, 4GB of memory, and 64GB of storage. Some of those specs are innocuous—practically every modern system exceeds the memory and storage minimums—but the CPU and TPM 2.0 requirements are more restrictive.
