Speculators bought TPM 2.0 modules hoping to cash in on Windows 11 users

Most modern PC platforms include a software TPM (fTPM) implementation, and if not, there is usually the option of plugging a hardware module into a connector on the motherboard. As you know, the presence of TPM is included in the system requirements of Microsoft Windows 11. According to a source citing data from Shen Ye, one of the leaders of HTC Vive, foreseeing an increased demand for TPM 2.0 modules, speculators began to buy these modules, which immediately led to an increase in their price from $ 20 to $ 100.

Speculators hope to cash in not only on those who really need a hardware module, but also on those who will not understand or will not be able to enable fTPM in the UEFI settings.
