Windows 11, Microsoft’s new operating system, has been released in October 2021. It improves the security of the OS and requires the CPU and the motherboard to include some hardware-enforced attack protections. As a consequence, Microsoft has published a list of Windows 11 supported processors on its website. This list has been updated last December 2nd, 2021 to include some additional processors.
The updated list of Windows 11 supported processors now includes the Intel Alder Lake CPUs released last November 4th, 2021. The list also includes some additional Intel Xeon Server processors (not displayed here). You can consult the full list of Windows 11 supported processors in this page.
We have updated the Windows 11 compatibility information in the CPU details pages to include these additional CPUs.
You can also search if a Desktop, Laptop or Workstation CPU is supported by Windows 11 by using the following lists. You can filter the lists by entering part of the CPU name in the upper field. Click the “See Details” button to navigate to the CPU specifications page.
