fTPM and PTT are the same. AMD calls it fTPM for firmware TPM, Intel came up with PTT for Platform Trust Technology, but it's also an fTPM.

On Intel, you have the choice between PTT (fTPM) or dTPM / discrete TPM, which means an external TPM module. Obviously you would select PTT, so you don't need any extra module.

Awesome thanks and if I do a BIOS update at some point with PTT enabled will it give me troubles, or will it just update seamlessly?

It shouldn't give you any trouble. The only thing is, on all MSI BIOS updates i've seen so far (and that's a lot), things like Security Device Support and Secure Boot were on disabled by default. But it's a matter of enabling it again after the update, before booting Windows, and you're good.

Thats great thanks, I am new to MSI and I really like the boards and the BIOS interface. I have a 11900K on the MEG and its been really good, I flashed the latest BIOS earlier without any problems and this forum seems packed with a wealth of information.

How do we backup the TPM keys? (just in case I need to upgrade my CPU at some point)

Ignore my question, it was silly and I found the answer, you just clear the TPM :)

Hi dudes, I have a PE60 6QE MS-16J5 and I think TPM is not available on that laptop. I couldn't find that option anywhere in the BIOS. Do you have any idea whether it's supported or not? Thx

That system won't be compatible with Windows 11 as it currently stands.

There is a good chance for HM170/HM175 and 7700HQ (Intel 7th generation mobile) to be accepted by Microsoft for Win 11.

I guess you're right I could activate TPM 2.0 running advanced bios settings but I cannot see it activated when I run tpm.msc...so sad I guess this laptop will never run windows 11. Thx dude!

Asus comes soon with a bios update with the Secureboot and TPM2.0 enabled, i have read it about Asus bios'es only ,it should be nice that MSI comes with such a Bios update to make
it more easy after every bios update, without enabling the secureboot and TPM2.0 every time, it's not much work but .............

Hello, is there anything known about 1st generation processors and will they be added with updates?
a pity because they can lose people.

At the moment Microsoft have no plans to support first gen 1000 series AMD GPU as they do not meet there standards


Update 8/27/2021: Microsoft has said that after analyzing their performance in Windows 11, AMD’s first-generation Ryzen processors (“Zen”) won’t be supported. The company’s reasoning can be found in its Windows Insider blog post detailing the news.
