    Hi @K Duy ,

    Your Intel processor is indeed on the list of supported processors, please also check that you meet all the other hardware and software requirements:

    Hi there,

    In general, a higher clock speed means a faster CPU. For win 11 , 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with two or more cores on a compatible 64-bit processor or system on a chip (SoC) is required and also they are working on reducing the requirement's .And also if you are using PC health app there is a updated version that is yet to be released on their website , you can try that. And make sure your processor is listed here
