ASUS Announces Motherboard Support for Windows 11

No settings changes required with latest BIOS update on selected motherboards


  • Ready for Windows 11: With latest firmware update, many ASUS motherboards on Intel® and AMD platforms are ready for the new operating system preview
  • Optional manual activation: Support for Windows 11 Insider Preview can also be directly enabled via existing settings, without updating the UEFI BIOS
