Study finds more work PCs are finally ready to receive the Windows 11 upgrade

Windows 11 system requirements in white on blue background

Going back a few months, when Windows 11 still wasn't generally available, a survey conducted by Lansweeper, allegedly across 30 million devices, found that the majority of enterprise PCs weren't ready for Windows 11.

But things are finally looking to be getting better according to a recent report by Riverbed. In this report dubbed "The State of the Digital Experience Report Q1 2022", the systems of more than 2 million enterprise devices were analyzed to assess their readiness for Windows 11.

Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, the report finds that still nearly one in five PCs (19.45%), don't feature the minimum 64GB storage requirement. Another one in five devices (20.75%) does not meet the TPM requirements, where half of those (10.04%) will need to be replaced completely due to the lack of TPM 2.0. Hence these machines probably run Ryzen 1000 series or Intel 6th/7th gen and older processors.

Overall, less than one in four (22.29%) workplace computers can be upgraded to Windows 11, and around half of that (12.23%) will need total replacement.
