The price of TPM 2.0 modules has soared by 3 times!! Microsoft explains the mandatory requirements for TPM 2.0 in Windows 11

After Microsoft released Windows 11, many users used the “Health Check Tool” to check whether the device meets the upgrade requirements, but found that the computer is not compatible with Windows 11 or the mandatory prompt of “TPM (Trusted Platform Module)”. It turns out that Microsoft has strengthened security in Windows 11, so TPM 2.0 conditions have also been added to the system requirements. Systems that are not supported will not be eligible for upgrade.

TPM is a module that can store encryption keys and account credentials. It is usually related to the computer’s motherboard or processor. At the same time, systems that do not have this technology have TPM enabled. Later, Microsoft also issued an article stating: In the future, PCs need to use the root-of-trust of this hardware to help resist common and complex attacks, such as ransomware and complex attacks by heavyweight hacker groups. By forcing the built-in root-of-trust, Windows 11’s requirements for TPM 2.0 will help improve hardware security standards. TPM will become part of a more comprehensive set of security tools, including the use of Windows Hello and support for hardware-level mandatory stack protection on Intel/AMD systems.

Since many old computers do not support TPM 2.0, many of them are stuck on upgrading Windows 11. However, the computer does not support TPM is not a proof, as long as you buy a TPM 2.0 module, you can come back to life. Because of this, the price of the TPM 2.0 module in the online store has also risen sharply, from the original US$24.9 product to US$99 in less than 2 hours, a three-fold increase.
