I hope MS changes there mind about older hardware and TPM. Otherwise it could be a long time for me.

For me, and I suspect for others, the bigger issue of the two isn't TPM, but the CPU generation. We have two laptops with TPM but using 6th gen CPUs that don't technically qualify.

It's not a real problem, as we have other, supported PCs that are happily running 11, but I'd prefer all our PCs be on 11 for user convenience.

I do think that this requirement will be relaxed, perhaps with the next annual update, as one of the 6th gen laptops is running 11 as a Dev Channel machine. It's slow, but no slower than it was with Windows 10.

Exactly, who wants to deal with different interfaces. I like the consistency of 11 yet I'm not aware of any reason not to support older CPUs except greed.

On earlier CPUs there can be a variable and potentially significant CPU performance hit if Memory Integrity is enabled. My 6th gen performance comment is with it disabled. I can see some people screaming with intense 11-rage if they switch MI on not knowing the possible side effects.

I'd like to see similar tests on pre-7th gen CPUs; anyone found such?

While we can measure these differences, in reality and other than gaming, it is unusual to perceive them

That also applies to some recent CPU generations, but users still pay attention to benchmarks. I'd like to see numbers from a wide variety of applications; this early document suggests that we might see quite large differences in some cases:

To quote one of my favorite old TV shows, "We want...information."

I don't use benchmarks as a "benchmark" for actual usability.  It's a synthetic usage. If we only went by benchmarks for performance, You would not get an accurate account of usability.  For example, The M1 benchmarks above intel's core i7.  However in the real world once you throw a video encoding project at both, the i7 dominates the M1 in speed.  Generations old i7 as well.  So benchmarking, give no indicators on real world performance.
