Microsoft again changed the requirements for installing Windows 11

With Windows 11 already out and even being tested by a lot of users, there is still some confusion when it comes to the minimum requirements. This element has caused problems, with many feeling that they cannot use the Microsoft system.

Microsoft has now come to give more information on the subject and has changed the requirements for installing Windows 11. The software giant hopes to resolve the issue once and for all, with an important adjustment for everyone.

Yesterday was very important for Windows 11 and for Microsoft, opening the door to the future. The first build of the new operating system was released, made public and accessible for those who are registered in the Insiders Program.

In addition to opening the tests on this new version of the operating system, Microsoft went public to try to further clarify the most complicated issue for this system. We talked about the minimum requirements for and what you will need to have to install Windows 11.

The first and big news is the clearer definition of the CPUs that will be supported by the system. So, and from what is presented, we now have support for Intel's 8th generation processors, AMD Zen 2 and also Qualcomm Series 7 and 8.

Even more interesting is the support for 7th generation processors from Intel and AMD Zen 1 in this first build. Microsoft wants to evaluate the performance of these processors and try to see if it has the ability to run Windows 11 without problems.

On the other hand, Microsoft decided to ease some obligations for this first build. TPM 2.0 itself is out of this release, ensuring that Windows 11 is tested on maximum platforms and configurations.

To avoid confusion and misinformation, Microsoft decided to pause the PC Health Check app. He admitted that this was not prepared and that he often gave incorrect information about Windows 11 support.
