So, M$ has a pretty strict TPM 2.0 requirement for Windows 11 (and if that involves encrypting all datapaths to the CPU, you can say goodbye to Looking Glass, as shared memory is just not possible) and since 2019, Keylime seems to have been mum on vtpm for TPM 2.0 according to the issue tracker:
VFIO could face a nearly insurmountable cliff soon. This means Proton and the Steam Deck was totally the right move from Valve. Unfortunately the Steam Deck’s number one complaint will be incompatible anti-cheat stuff.
I’ll be happy when Hat in Time runs flawlessly, but with the primary compatibility layer tester for that game being an absolute jerk/asshole, (and on Valve’s payroll, nonetheless) I don’t have confidence in that.
Unfortunately, a 720p 30fps performance target is no different from the Nintendo Switch version of Hat in Time. I gotta wait till Zen4 APUs to get 1080p at 60fps.
Not sure what you’re expecting in terms of performance from a battery powered handheld device.
The performance we have today is nothing short of mind blowing.
Imagine telling the guys who did the Apollo missions that we would fit 10 billion transistors in 156mm² in the near future. Or how about telling them that we could run processors not only in the megahertz range, but even gigahertz.
From what I understand of HDCP content policies and their encryption paths, there’s no way protected shared memory can be allocated out as unencrypted when the OS does encryption for all data paths in and out of the CPU. You would require a CPU vulnerability to even access the encrypted data in a unencrypted form. Quote me fully, because the “If they encrypt all data paths in and out of the CPU” part was important to my statement.
The leaked build only specifies TPM 1.2, but who knows what they will do when they finally release Windows 11? People are already panic buying TPM 2.0 modules as stated in the other TPM discussion thread post Windows 11 announcement.
Zen4 + RDNA3 is going to make a pretty good Steam Deck 1080p.
Aside from some people on Valve’s payroll who aren’t at their main office but working remotely being assholes, I want to wait out the natural progression towards something like 1080p 60hz in the same size and even more efficient power envelope. But this is Steam Deck discussion.
Well, if people can show me evidence functioning TPM 2.0 in QEMU is in the roadmap sooner than later, I’ll be less fucking “FUD.”
Also, sorry if I’m late to this whole discussion like beating a dead horse, but I had to deal with life for the past 2 months.
Where did people run to when Windows 7 was dead? Linux. (or AME)
Where did people run to when (certain) anti-cheats were their main problem? VFIO.
Where are people going to run to when Windows 11 takes over? It should be VFIO so UWP stuff (and you know there will be UWP exclusive games exclusive to Windows 11. We all saw what happened to Sea of Thieves at launch.) can work in a container away from your main machine via a hypervisor. This TPM requirement though is making so much uncertain.
VFIO has been a core part of some people’s containerization strategies. It would be nice if we knew Windows 11 won’t be severely affected when running in QEMU. VMware is a whole 'nother story, as the proprietary portions of it will indeed be ready.
Don’t know what your problem is, but it already totally works… I installed win11 with tpm + secureboot some weeks ago. The only problem is optaining the secureboot friendly virtio drivers… Just launch virt-manager and add a TPM with the version 2.
