Windows 11 Compatibility with University of Pittsburgh Services


Table summarizing the results of our Windows 11 testing.




The following table summarizes the results of our Windows 11 testing. This table will be updated with additional results as testing is completed.

Important: Windows 11 may be incompatible with devices that are more than three years old because of its stringent hardware requirements, which include an Intel 8th gen 64-bit 1GHz or faster processor, a TPM 2.0 chip, 4 GB RAM, and 64 GB storage. Be sure to verify hardware compatibility before installing Windows 11.   

Note: Devices purchased through the University's Computing Equipment Purchasing and Standardization Program are compatible with Windows 11.
