    So I read a few comparisons between 2.0 and 1.2 and honestly they don't tell me much of use. I also read about problems with TPM 2.0 on certain notebooks, though, resulting in worse performance etc, and that Intel SGX which seems to be an essential part of TPM 2.0 is a pile of potentially exploitable crap. Am I missing something, or is TPM 2.0, especially it's firmware-based implementation (fTPM), just bad compared to good old discrete TPM1.2?

    I don't know the answer to your question but I always disable the Intel SGX Extension in the BIOS otherwise my Logitech Mouse would jerk and stutter. Intel SGX is only for developers not for the general or even power users. I don't know why a lot of laptop manufacturers have it enabled by default, it only does harm but no good.
