That’s why Windows 11 imposes strict hardware requirements
Microsoft started rolling out the final version of Windows 11 earlier this month, and as expected, Windows 11 will be available as a free upgrade for all Windows PCs and laptops that meet the minimum operating system requirements.

Although Microsoft has already revealed a roundup of TPM 2.0 processor requirements, the company also warned users against installing the operating system on unsupported devices, and the company also stated that unsupported devices may not receive future cumulative updates for Windows 11.

Despite the fact that most modern computers are powerful enough to effortlessly run Windows 11, Microsoft has implemented very strict system requirements for the operating system, especially with older generation processors, noting that Windows 11 requires at least an Intel Core or AMD Ryzen processor. It’s a 7th Generation 7 Plus with 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage, TPM 2.0, and Secure Boot support.

According to the report, the only reason Microsoft introduced these strict requirements is the enhanced security of the operating system, as the company has now published a new video explaining the importance of the required and mandatory security features to run Windows 11.

Microsoft highlighted that the Windows 11 operating system has been designed with security as the main focus, and according to the company, Windows 11 is the most secure version of Windows ever, and perhaps the first and most important aspect behind the strict system requirements is “reliability”, as Microsoft states that “Maintaining reliability over time is closely related to support for OEM and IHV drivers. Processors supported on Windows 11 are under OEM and IHV support and use up-to-date (DCH) drivers.”

According to the company, the use of modern drivers will enable Microsoft to manage and update them in a coordinated manner through Windows Update and provide a better mechanism for tracking device health, and this will help improve the reliability of the entire system.

Another key requirement is trusted and secure booting, Microsoft explains that with the help of Secure Boot and Trusted Boot that require both UEFI and TPM hardware, they can help users minimize damage if the device gets compromised, and these two components prevent hackers or spammers from accessing Boot kits and system rootkits and their modification.

Finally, it’s all about performance and peace of mind for users, as Microsoft also stated that unsupported systems are likely to have 52% more kernel crashes compared to supported devices. Also, the company claims that systems that meet Windows 11 requirements are expected to have a free experience Malfunctions are 99.8%.

In addition, systems with older processors experience performance issues when running Windows 11, according to a series of tests the company ran on older hardware.
