Which model in the XPS desktop line was the first to support TPM 2.0?

Thinking about upgrading from my XPS 8900 (which doesn't support TPM 2.0 as I understand it). With which model did the XPS desktop line start supporting TPM 2.0?

Dell computers that are shipped from 2015 onwards support TPM 2.0. You can verify this in the Windows device manager:

  1. Right-Click on the Windows Start Button.
  2. Click Device Manager.
  3. Expand the Security Device branch.

You should see the Trusted Platform Module 2.0 entry.

NOTE: When there is no Security Device branch that is listed, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article Enable TPM 2.0 on your PC

for more information.


Dell computers that were built between 2015 and 2018 may have shipped from the factory with Trusted Platform Module (TPM) firmware version 1.2.

This article lists the computer models that may have shipped with TPM 1.2 so you can upgrade the TPM firmware to version 2.0 if needed.

Computers that were released after 2019 support TPM firmware 2.0 without an option to downgrade (Systems that shipped with Windows 10 and have limited or no Legacy support).

The models that have INTEL PTT in bios.

They don't use a hardware TPM like the Precision Line does.

Intel® Platform Trust Technology (Intel® PTT) - Intel® Platform Trust Technology (Intel® PTT) offers the capabilities of discrete TPM 2.0. Intel PTT is a platform functionality for credential storage and key management used by Windows 8* and Windows® 10.

Turn off all virtualization options in bios and turn off fast start. Enabling PTT however doesn't mean they will support your cpu for windows 11.

Use the PC Health Check app to see if your PC can run Windows 11.


I believe you will be disappointed.

You can also click Start>Run and type in: tpm.msc and click OK. The tpm control panel will open and show the status of TPM and its specs, etc
