TPM module on NUC10i5FNB

Hello everyone

 

I have a question regarding TPM module on a Intel NUC10i5FNB model that I recently acquired. Acording Intel's ARK page this model does not have any kind of TPM chip, but windows installation sees a TPM 2.0 module ready for use. I did not install anything external on the nuc (aside the ram and harddisk). I'm looking to use bitlocker's disk encryption and I need to know this for sure.

 

This is the link to Intel's ARK for this product: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/195504/intel-nuc-10-performance-kit-nuc10i5fnhf...

 

And a screenshot of windows tpm.msc detecting a 2.0 TPM module:

Thank you!

This platform is equipped with Intel Platform Trust Technology (PTT), which implements TPM functionality within the Intel Management Engine (ME) firmware. You should be good to go using it for BitLocker.

Also a hardware requirement for Windows 11 too...

Thank you for the explanation

 

I just read about the TPM discussion for Windows 11 and understood how software and hardware TPM are implemented. I think that is quite misleading the ARK's page of the nuc product, since the CPU supports it it should appear as somehow supported. More considering that right now Windows 11 lists the TPM as a requirement for the installation and people can think that the nuc is not able to run it.

 

Thank you!

Hi @Krasny 

You may download and install Windows PC Health Check App and verify that your NUC FN, equipped with Intel PTT (instead of TPM), is compatible with Windows 11.
