Microsoft patches the minimum requirements for Windows 11 PC, and it makes us sad

This story has been updated in light of Microsoft’s update of its guidance on the necessity of TPM 2.0 at the minimum hardware requirements, and therefore the ability to run Insider builds of Windows 11 on older AMD and Intel machines.

Microsoft Windows 11 does not explicitly support first generation AMD Ryzen CPUs. But it does not then support any Intel processor made prior to the Coffee Lake generation. So nothing from the Ryzen 1000-series or seventh-generation Kaby Lake isn’t listed as a win for Windows 11.
