In this Windows 10 guide, I will be showing you how you can check which version of TPM Processor you have, If you are not sure what TPM stands for then it is Trusted Platform Module.
If you are wanting to upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 then you will need to know what TPM your processor supports so that you can check if your processor’s TPM meets the Windows 11 minimum system requirements.
The current minimum required TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is version 2.0. If you do not have a 2.0 TPM then at the moment you will not be able to install or upgrade to Windows 11, as your system will be incompatible.
We can only hope that Microsoft changes this at a later date but, personally I do not see this happening and Microsoft will want you to upgrade your hardware to be able to use Windows 11.
