The problem I see with the options to verify is in how to determine (1) if you are truly TPM 2.0 and (2) the PC Health Check tool not being specific as to why you may not be compatible. Following your guide, I checked everything I could on my PC:
3.9 Ghz processor (1 socket, 8 cores)
64-bit OS, x64-based processor
16 GB RAM
1 TB storage (742 GB available)
GeForce GTX 960 - DirectX version 12.0
TPM.MSC shows "TPM Ready for use"

Yet, the PC Health Check says my machine is not compatible for Windows 11. Why, specifically? While I have TPM, is it that it is not 2.0?

There is a TPM 1.2 and a 2.0.

Requirements are apparently changing all the time.
As well as the compatibility checker tool.

What you see today is not even a Preview version.
I expect many more changes before it is actually released, several months from now.

Patience.
