Trying to find out if the 5800 will be Windows 11 compatible.. Anyone possibly know? It's kind of hard to find any info on the 5800 since it's an OEM only chip and not available in retail.

Jeffrey, I could be wrong but from my understanding, it is less so about the processor and more so about the motherboard.

Provided you have at least 16gigs of ram you should be able to play it quite well on the highest settings on 1080p.
