TPM card for GA-990X-Gaming SLI-CF

TPM card for GA-990X-Gaming SLI-CF
« on: October 30, 2021, 12:51:56 pm »
I have a Gigabyte GA-990X-Gaming SLI-CF motherboard with an AMD FX8350 Eight-Core Processor, 4200 Mhz and 16GB of DDR3 RAM.  There is a socket for a TPM card.  Although the prosessor is not listed by microsoft it is well faster than the spec calls for.  I am happy with the performance but would like to upgrade to Windows 11.
So the question is would fitting a TPM card allow me to uprade?  Is so which card would be needed as there are four shown on the Gigabyte website?
Has anyone installed Windows 11 on this motherboard?

Many thanks  Ian

99% chance no you can't run it. It has to be a Ryzen CPU. Sorry but you have to have newer motherboard. Down the road they might go back, but I don't see that happening.
