  1. it's a 2000 series Ryzen APU, which actually is a Zen chip and not a Zen+ chip, meaning no support, along with the rest of the 1000 series Ryzen chips. As for why it's like this, the answer is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  2. i assumed it is; your post is making me think otherwise though PS: i didn't know the forum had an option to add emoji like this, i guess you learn something new everyday ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  3. you only need to go into the BIOS and look for something called PTT, that's Intel's implementation of firmware level TPM emulation. enable it, and TPM 2.0 should be enabled.
  4. no, they changed the requirements to require TPM 2.0 a few days ago, for both new and upgraded systems.
  5. for now I'm thinking dualbooting windows 10 with debian (installing KDE and customising it to my heart's content, unixporn-style); I really wanted to install windows 11, especially because they fixed a lot of the UI problems I had with windows 10 and the fact that it can run android apps was a nice feature I wanted, but if I can't install it on my ryzen 7 1700-based system, linux it is.
  6. i really hope that this kinda stuff is fixed before release, but knowing microsoft, who knows if this'll be a "feature!" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  7. i think he meant he had paid software on his machine that he can't reactivate for some reason
  8. it's a laptop, so upgrading the CPU is out of the question; sticking with win10 is the best option OP has right now.
  9. microsoft hasn't given a reason for why they're not supported, so we're all in the dark for now. (there are some people speculating that there's either some feature missing from it that microsoft won't tell us, or that microsoft did it as planned obsolescence, but i'd wait for official replies from microsoft on that)
  10. I'm very sorry I have no solution, but I've had similar issues with my build (MSI B450 Tomahawk Max + Ryzen 7 1700), so I'll follow this thread in case someone can find answers.
  11. oh, yeah that PSU looks problematic for ampere's obscenely high peak power requirements, check that out first
  12. this sounds to me like one of two possible issues (i'm not very experienced with PCs, and i did both these mistakes): the GPU is in a slot handled by the chipset instead of the CPU directly (this introduces a ton of extra latency, drastically reducing framerates), or the memory is in the wrong spots and running in single channel (this shouldn't cause the extreme case you have alone, but bundled with possibility #1, it can make a bad stuttering problem worse).
  13. oh hi there, i like to talk
  14. So i ran this on my old PC, and the TPM check failed (as expected), but i expected the directx support to fail as well (see GPU-Z info underlined on the left); the application thinks i do have directx12 support. Any idea why?
  15. it's a cheap dramless ssd, yes, but the problem isn't isntalling windows (that rarely ever takes more than 15 minutes), it's setting everything after the windows installation that takes forever: downloading drivers, installing drivers, downloading apps, installing apps, fixing broken apps that were installed on the other drive, fixing the windows 10 desktop from the default mess it is; that takes hours, if not days. and doing that every few months (either because you don't have enough experience tinkering with windows, or because some stupid bug in a driver causes bootlooping, or because yet a
