Well, there are at least two implementations I know of:
For my Lenovo X260 I can choose between Infineon TPM 1.2 or Intel PTT TPM 2.0
This here is my ThinkStation P320 which can choose between PTT 1.2, PTT 2.0,
Nuvoton 1.2 and 2.0. When switchting between 1.2 and 2.0 the Nuvoton gets
reflashed with the appropriate firmware.
