Windows 11 Overview

In June 2021, a leaked version of Windows 11 appeared on the Internet, which caused a lot of sensation, because when Windows 10 was released, Microsoft had said that Windows 10 would be the last version of the Windows operating system. From the perspective of the leaked version, Windows 11 has made many improvements, especially the interface has changed a lot. It provides a Mac-like operating system interface and adds some new features (such as support for Android applications, a new start menu, and Window components, etc.) and improvements to the old functions (such as game enhancements, virtual desktops, etc.). A few months later, Microsoft officially released Windows 11 on October 5, 2021, and at the same time announced the latest Windows 11 system requirements.

Windows 11 System Requirements

Windows 11 may become the next popular Windows operating system because Microsoft promises that users of Windows 10 can upgrade to Windows 11 for free. However, due to the limitations of the Windows 11 system requirements, many old computers will not be able to upgrade to Windows 11. The following are the details of the Windows 11 system requirements:

Processor 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with two or more cores on a compatible 64-bit processor or system on a chip (SoC)
RAM 4 gigabytes (GB) or greater
Storage 64 GB* or greater available storage is required to install Windows 11
System firmware UEFI, Secure Boot capable
TPM Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0
Graphics card Compatible with DirectX 12 or later, with a WDDM 2.0 driver
Display High definition (720p) display, 9" or greater monitor, 8 bits per color channel
Internet connection Internet connectivity is necessary to perform updates, and to download and use some features

We can see that Windows 11 system requirements requires that the computer upgraded to Windows 11 must be a UEFI computer with a TPM version 2.0, which will result in legacy BIOS computers and UEFI computers that do not contain TPM 2.0 chip not being able to install Windows 11, and media estimates that even two-thirds of computers worldwide will not be able to install and run Windows 11.
