It is release 6 years ago, not so new anymore.

Main reason Microsoft choose generation is to ensure that TPM 2.0 is confirm there. Gen 7 had possibility MB for them not came with TPM 2.0

I bought my device in the end of 2017, it's coming with TPM 2.0 too....

Not all, but Gen 8 is much guarantee. Anyway you can bypass it easily, I run in my Gen 6 Laptop and perfectly no issue.

Tpm is just one of factors anyway

Microsoft choose at least 8th gen is because guaranteed performance and stability with DCH drivers support, enough performance for security core like HVCI (core isolation / memory integrity)

And OEMs only still support most pc-s after 8th gen in terms of firmware and driver support

6th and 7th gen mostly already dropped support from OEMs so DCH drivers mostly not available for them by OEMs, and both of them while possible to run HVCI core isolation / memory integrity, Microsoft thinks performance penalties just too much for them because lack of newer specific processors instructions

That is one of the reason also, but mainly TPM 2.0 is confirmed there for Gen 8 and above.
