If you see a model that you own/have listed above, then it is Windows 11 compatible. However, it will require a BIOS update to enable the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) feature. Our team is working to get them available as soon as they can. The BIOS needs to be created, tested, and then finally released for public download on the zotac.com website Download Center - https://www.zotac.com/support#download

One exception that doesn’t require a BIOS update are the ZOTAC GAMING MEK ULTRA systems. However, a BIOS change is still needed where you will need to enter the BIOS menu and enable the Intel Trusted Platform Technology feature under the SECURITY tab of the BIOS menu.

If you don’t see a specific model on the list, it’s not Windows 11 compatible as it does not meet the Windows 11 requirements listed above.
