Why Acer laptops do not support Windows 11?

In addition to the Acer Nitro 5 PCs mentioned above that are compatible with Windows 11, there are also a few Acer PCs that are not compatible with Windows 11. Why some Acer laptops do not support Windows 11? There are 5 main reasons.

Processor requirements

Acer Nitro 5 laptops and PCs compatible with Windows 11 are equipped with a CPU speed of 2.5 GHz and contain 6 CPU cores on a 64-bit compatible processor. But there are some Acer computers that do not meet the CPU requirements of Windows 11 and are therefore not compatible with Windows 11.


Microsoft recommends that your computer needs at least 64GB of storage to install Windows 11. Acer computers with less than 64GB of storage cannot run Windows 11.

Secure Boot

Safe Boot is designed to prevent malware from loading when your PC starts up, helping your computer defend against malware attacks and infections. Most Acer Nitro 5 computers are capable of safe booting. But there are also some Acer computers that do not support Secure Boot and are not compatible with Windows 11.


The TPM 2.0 chip can improve the security of the operating system. And a few Acer laptops don’t support TPM 2.0 chips; therefore, they can’t run Windows 11.

Graphics card compatibility

Microsoft has set Direct X 12 graphics compatibility for Windows 11 to improve gaming performance in Windows 11. But some older Acer computers are Direct X 11 compatible and not Direct X 12 compatible, so they can’t run Windows 11.


Therefore, Acer Nitro 5 laptops and desktops are compatible with Windows 11 because they meet all system requirements (processor, storage, secure boot, TPM 2.0, graphics card). Other Acer PCs that do not meet the system requirements are not compatible with Windows 11.
