    Z97 and TPM support

    I have a Z97-A motherboard and I just updated the BIOS, still dont see a TPM support. Is it possible to upgrade my MB to have it?

    Thanks

    Z97-A has a physical TPM header, so you'd need to buy a module and install it there. That said, if you're thinking about Windows 11, you may still be out of luck because ASUS never updated that board's BIOS to support TPM 2.0. You'd be able to activate TPM 1.2 at most.

    Only a few select older boards, like Sabertooth Z87, received an updated BIOS for TPM 2.0 (ASUS TPM-L module). Sadly, my Maximus VI Formula also did not get the update.

    Is TPM 1.2 enough for W11?

    Originally, Microsoft's documentation said that TPM 1.2 would be allowed as a "soft floor" requirement for W11, but within the past day they removed that statement completely and only mention TPM 2.0 as being mandatory. So, for now, it seems that TPM 1.2 might not be enough.

    I see. seems like it's time to get a new MB. Would you recommend one that is going to work with W11? And also what about CPU? I have Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz 4.00 GHz. Will that work?

    When I run PC Health Check now it says that my Processor isn't supported. I think it wasn't that specific a day ago. can I upgrade my MB to the compatible processor?

    AMD Ryzen (tested on first gen 1800x to current gen) with TPM firmware hardware enabled in BIOS B350, CH6 & CH8. Dont keep up with / follow Intel anymore, but cant see that any current processors would not work.

    Anyone using the 3503 bios for this board? Any luck with TPM 1.2 on this bios?

    I own a Z97 Deluxe with a Intel Core i7-4790K CPU. Even if somehow we managed to get TPM 1.2 installed and running with Windows 11, I heard there would be a significant performance hit just to enable these security features on a Z97 motherboard. I still plan on upgrading my video card to get at least 3 more years of gaming on my rig... I guess it looks like I'll be sticking with Windows 10... unless I can install Windows 11 without any TPM at all.
