Windows 11 OS will only be compatible with a TPM 2.0 chip system, only on the mentioned CPUs, and only with a GPU that supports DirectX 12. For reference, the processor lists are (1) Intel: From the eighth generation onwards (MBEC support) (2) AMD: Some 2nd Gen (2000) Ryzen are supported, some are not (3) Qualcomm: All chipsets used so far in Windows on Arm systems except the very first, the Snapdragon 835.
