Windows 11 raises the prices of TPM 2.0 chips

Windows 11 was officially announced but Microsoft released it specific hardware requirements to make the operating system work. So it is no surprise that many scalpers have started advertising that they have TPM 2.0.


Scalping (on eBay, of course) on TPM drives, a niche security chip to be used for Windows 11 encryption keys, was expected after Microsoft's announcement.

The company has just revealed its requirements και του software που απαιτούνται από τα Windows 11, οι τιμές άρχισαν να ξεφεύγουν. Γιατί; Η Microsoft αναφέρει, “Οι συσκευές που δεν πληρούν το “hard floor” δεν θα μπορούν να αναβαθμιστούν σε Windows 11 και οι συσκευές που πληρούν το “soft floor” θα λάβουν από μια ειδοποίηση ότι δεν συνιστάται η αναβάθμιση.”

The specialized security chip TPM 2.0 is referred to by Microsoft as "soft floor."

Many pre-built laptops come with TPM already connected or stuck to the mainboard, and most new motherboards support TPM via firmware. In cases where this is not the case, one may need to purchase the chip separately. You should check if your machine has TPM 2.0 support via UEFI.

Φυσικά, αυτό θα βάλει πολλούς καταναλωτές σε περιπέτειες. (Το ίδιο είχε συμβεί παλαιότερα και με τις κάρτες γραφικών GeForce RTX 3080 της NVIDIA) Εάν χρειάζεται να αγοράσετε ένα TPM 2.0, βεβαιωθείτε ότι αγοράζετε μόνο μέσω κάποιας αξιόπιστης πηγής (Tip: όχι από το eBay) Η προτεινόμενη λιανική τιμή του, που ει περίπου στα 20 δολάρια.
