Intel and Windows 11

  • Staff
New PCs enabled by Intel® Core™ processors and Intel’s broad portfolio of intellectual property and platform technologies are ready to deliver the full potential of new Windows 11 experiences — allowing people to collaborate, create and connect in ways that are meaningful to them.

What’s New: Renowned for deep co-engineering and collaboration to advance computing, Intel and Microsoft today deepen their partnership to deliver a completely reimagined computing experience with the upcoming Windows 11 for the more than three-fourths of Windows PCs powered by Intel® processors1.

“Intel and Microsoft’s long-standing approach to OS, system architecture and hardware integration enables the best PC experience for customers. The combination of Windows 11 and Intel® technologies and platforms offers unmatched performance, compatibility and experiences on Windows, and we’re bringing people’s favorite experiences from the phone to the PC with Intel® Bridge Technology.”
–Gregory Bryant, Intel executive vice president and general manager, Client Computing Group

How It Works: New PCs enabled by Intel® Core™ processors and Intel’s broad portfolio of intellectual property and platform technologies are ready to deliver the full potential of new Windows 11 experiences — allowing people to collaborate, create and connect in ways that are meaningful to them. New experiences include:
  • Intel® Bridge Technology, which vastly expands mobile applications to run right on the PC, making it easier than ever to both be productive and play favorite games all on one screen.
  • Windows Snap and Thunderbolt™ 4 for the best multi-monitor experience.
  • Windows and Intel® Wi-Fi 6E, to connect anywhere, anytime from a PC — with more than 60 laptop designs on the market featuring Wi-Fi 6E, among other capabilities.
Why It Matters: With Intel Bridge Technology, the PC continues to offer the most choices and best experiences for the broadest ecosystem of applications. Intel Bridge Technology is a runtime post-compiler that enables applications to run natively on x86-based devices, including running those applications on Windows. Intel’s multi-architecture XPU strategy provides the right engines for the right workloads by integrating leading CPU cores, graphics technology, artificial intelligence accelerators, image processors and more, in a single, verified solution.

These hardware advancements, coupled with Intel's software co-engineering with Microsoft, will enable some of the best Windows designs on the market. Intel has already verified more than 80 Windows-based Intel® Evo™ platforms from top original equipment manufacturers, including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, LG, MSI and Samsung, among others. Intel expects to deliver the broadest range of computing experiences for Windows 11 this year and beyond, with 10th Gen, 11th Gen and future generations of Intel Core processor-based platforms for consumers, businesses, education, enthusiasts and more.

So MS must have been contacting Intel about the new Windows 11 for awhile.

I don't see the connection with Microsoft working with Intel and a leaked version of Win 11. I think it was someone working at Microsoft or maybe even Microsoft themselves that leaked Windows 11. The leak did give Microsoft a lot of free publicity.

I would imagine, unfortunately, that all of Intel's many microcode security patches will also translate to W11.

I think the reasons for some of the oddities on the Supported Processors lists, are due to various microcode patches or the inability to effectively patch some processors.

Yep.... I saw a list somewhere a while ago of the CPUs Intel couldn't/wouldn't patch. Have no idea where it is now, though. I don't keep up with Intel these days.

I think that in the long run, MS's desire to have their OSes on "every" device, will force some relaxing of the current requirements.
I noticed the 7000 series Intel processors were off the list. That seems really strange.

The leak came with Microsoft working with a hardware vendor, similarly as it has been working with Intel. it's not because of working with Intel but because it is doing the same thing with a lot of hardware vendors, not Intel, and thus someone, somewhere leaked the ISO.


I would imagine, unfortunately, that all of Intel's many microcode security patches will also translate to W11.


Ayup. As you also note below - it's the reason for the supported CPU cutoff, too.


I think the reasons for some of the oddities on the Supported Processors lists, are due to various microcode patches or the inability to effectively patch some processors.


Bingo.


Yep.... I saw a list somewhere a while ago of the CPUs Intel couldn't/wouldn't patch. Have no idea where it is now, though. I don't keep up with Intel these days.


I saw it too - and foolishly did not bookmark it.....

Hmmm. While some people definitely hope for this, I don't know if, in the long run, this is actually a good idea.

Of course it is too early to tell. But if their plans are more than just smoke and mirrors, or bandages applied to a bleeding aorta versus actual surgery to fix the issue, then yeah.

But if they are actually successful in employing a new level of security that we haven't seen before, I think it would be better to stick to their guns.

Like I said, I think the leak came from MS. They got a ton of free publicity because of the leak. All just before their big announcement.

Yes, I got it now. I have an "older" gen 10 core i9 10850K, and I had upgrated to newest BIOS Ver 1.7 which support the new generation of Intel CPU's. With this new BIOS my PC will not POST if I ENABLE Security Device Support in Secury\Trusted Computing, so it had to remain Disabled. Among some other small hicks with this new BIOS (other told me, it is because it also supports the new gen CPU with PCIe 4 gen), I then downgrated to BIOS ver 1.6, the newest BIOS WITHOUT support for Gen 11 Intel. And now everything works on my MSI board as it is for everybody else ;)

The manual for the board says nothing about it, but I'd wager that the board includes PTT (platform trust technology), which is Intel's version of an onboard TPM. See whether you can enable it.

It appears that one reason that hardware TP Modules are scarce is that most newer PCs don't need one to get the TPM function.

Test it by running tpm.msc. That'll tell you whether it is active, and its version number.

One caution: if you turn on the TPM, and use bitlocker, the data will not be recoverable if the TPM is erased.
