Can I Upgrade My Intel CPU to Run Windows 11?

HP Recommended
HP ENVY Desktop - 750-630xt CTO
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The latest Windows PCHealth Check app  tells me the Intel Core i7-7700 CPU in my desktop won't run the upcoming Windows 11. I don't know if that is because the processor itself is too old, or whether my machine lacks the necessary TPM to run Windows 11. Could anyone point me to information on whether my machine has TPM, as well as any permissible CPU upgrades that would enable me to run Windows 11? Thanks.

hi

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-envy-750-600-desktop-pc-series/17142191/model/18161467/docum...

 

https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c05792790

nothing more

Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
Processor
TDP
Integrated Graphics
Intel Core i7-7700 (Kabylake) 3.6 GHz Quad Core
65 W
Integrated HD Graphics 630
Intel Core i5-7400 (Kabylake) 3.0 GHz Quad Core
65 W
Integrated HD Graphics 630


that said, better to wait, and see what it will be ultimately
In some cases, you will probably have to change your computer.
If your computer works correctly in its current configuration, maybe it is better to cross out w11
Let's wait and see, if this system is reliable at least!

otherwise some info (copy paste from my macro)

 

Hello
the official version of windows 11 at the time of writing this answer has not yet been released, unless I'm mistaken!
Don't rush, any new version has these problems, wait at least a little bit before you start
Check everywhere if there are problems after installation or not!
For tpm 2.0, there are many sites that are starting to talk about it.
You can start by checking the general compatibility with the microsoft tool

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-11
https://aka.ms/GetPCHealthCheckApp
another tool given by the expert @WAWood gives more information (thanks to him for this find
https://github.com/rcmaehl/WhyNotWin11/releases

for TPM 2.0 to be activated with bios uefi, if it is possible
"In the search box or with the Windows + R key combination, we type tpm.msc."

look at the bottom, where the TPM version is shown. If we see version 2.0, our computer should be compatible with Windows 11 in this section.

If you access http://support.hp.com and enter the product-name and product-number for your HP computer, one of the selected documents should be "Specifications". Either that document contains a list of alternate processors, or it contains a hyperlink to the Specifications for the motherboard, and this latter page will contain a list of alternate processors.

Thanks for your reply. Since I already have the Intel Core i7-7700 CPU in my machine and TPM 2.0, it looks like I would be out of luck, Windows 11-wise, if Microsoft sticks to limiting CPUs to the Intel Core 8th gen or above. However, even though Microsoft's messaging about Windows 11 (and the results given by the  PCHealthCheck app) are a hot mess, there appears to be hope on the horizon for 7th gen Intel Core CPU owners like me.

 

PCMagazine.com reports today that the enormous pushback by users is causing Microsoft to re-evaluate its arbitrary cut-off at Intel Core 8th gen CPUs (and equivalent AMD Ryzen units). I will keep my fingers crossed that Microsoft will do the right thing for loyal Windows 10 7th gen users and itself, and ensure Windows 11 is compatible with my machine.

Is this your processor: Intel Core i77700 Processor 8M Cache up to 4.20 GHz Product Specifications

It was manufactured in 2017.

 

Since your computer is not too old, it should be possible (but at some cost) to upgrade to a newer Intel i7 processor that does have TPM.

 

Note that Microsoft will support Windows 10 until October 14, 2025 -- more than 4 years away. So, by that time, your current computer (and its disk-drive) will be  5 to 7 years old -- "ripe" for replacement.
