Windows 11: Microsoft explains itself and changes the minimum configuration – Frandroid


Microsoft has gone back (a little) on the minimum characteristics of Windows 11. Some machines are now compatible.

Since the presentation Windows 11 in June 2021, the minimum characteristics requested by Microsoft to install the system are debated. It must be said that after a Windows 10 compatible with anything and everything, Microsoft has decided to beef up the game and restrict the compatibility of Windows 11 to the most recent machines, to the point of abandoning most Surface products.

A question of reliability and safety

In a blog article, Microsoft wanted to better explain the constraints imposed on Windows 11. According to the firm, PCs that have Windows 11 without meeting the required characteristics with 52% more crash due to bugs with the kernel ( Windows kernel crash). PCs that follow the recommendations, again according to Microsoft, have a 99.8% crash-free experience. Note that it suffices that 6 machines out of 2000 suffer crashes in the first scenario and 4 machines out of 2000 in the second for the percentages to be verified, without being so shocking.

Microsoft also puts forward security arguments, indicating that the security conditions meet the expectations of experts from institutions such as the NSA or the United Kingdom’s national cybersecurity center.

Finally, and this is perhaps one of the most easily verified justifications: the minimum conditions of Windows 11 are an expression of the minimum conditions of use of certain software supplied with the system such as Microsoft Teams. The firm thus ensures full compatibility with its in-house applications.

Microsoft broadens the criteria for a few PCs

Microsoft had promised in July take a closer look at the 7th generation Intel processors and the first generation AMD Zen processors to see if it was possible to recover some machines. It must be said that the firm markets a Surface Studio 2 at more than 4000 euros with a processor deemed incompatible.

The firm follows its promise and announces that the following processors are now compatible:

  • Intel Core X-series
  • Intel Xeon W-series
  • Intel Core 7820HQ *

For the latter, Microsoft specifies that it is only certain machines equipped with the processor such as the Surface Studio 2 which will be compatible with Windows 11. The device must indeed use drivers in DCH (Declarative Componentized Hardware) format. support apps).

On the other hand and the discussion was made in consultation with AMD affirms Microsoft, the Zen processors will remain excluded from the new system.

A new application to check compatibility

In the small parts of the Windows 11 presentation fiasco, there was also the PC Health Check app whose purpose was to indicate whether a PC was compatible or not. Problem, it had caused panic with the lack of precision on the messages displayed so that Microsoft had decided to remove the application from its site.

She’s coming back now, first for the Windows Insider program, with clearer texts translated into French. It will be able to display in particular if it is necessary to activate TPM 2.0 on the machine to be able to install Windows 11.
