BIOSTAR, GIGABYTE, and MSI have published press releases and other documentation that clarify which of their motherboards are ready for Windows 11 and pass the operating system’s controversial TPM 2.0 requirement for users who own or are planning to upgrade to these manufacturers motherboards. GIGABYTE and MSI have pointed out that despite rising interest and discussion pertaining to separate TPM 2.0 modules, those shouldn’t be necessary, as much of the hardware should have built in support that can be easily enabled via BIOS options. Support lists for each manufacturer may be found in the source links below.

TPM 2.0 related technology is implemented in Intel 100 series Chipset and newer, and AMD Ryzen processors. Therefore, no external TPM module is necessary for those TPM 2.0 ready motherboards since the chipsets and processors have built-in firmware TPM (fTPM). All you need to do is enable “Security Device Support” in BIOS.
