And if you have an unsupported processor you’ll need to sign a waiver to accept any potential “damage” to your computer – but the real risk is the lack of updates.
According to the “digital trend” site, let’s make it clear that in August Microsoft announced that it will allow users with unsupported processors to install Windows 11 manually at that time.
The company indicated that users who took this route would not receive security and critical updates, and the waiver indicates that this is the case and poses a much greater risk than any “damages” the waiver talks about.
The site said that the most harmful part of using Windows 11 on unsupported devices is not the hardware, but the fact that it does not have access to updates.
Microsoft has reasons to limit Windows 11 to certain devices, and newer processors provide better security including TPM firmware support, secure boot and virtualization-based security, and Microsoft says the combination of these security features can reduce malware by up to 60% based on its testing. .
