Windows 11 has been available since October 5. According to new tests by TechSpot, the performance difference between Windows 10 and Windows 11 is hardly noticeable…
TechSpot therefore conducted tests on several versions with 10th and 11th generation Intel processors. To begin with, these have passed the test bench various apps, games and storage options. The aim was then to analyze how the systems would behave. The site also states that it based its results on an average of three runs, in order to provide data that is as credible as possible.
The outlet found that running apps like Blender and Cinebench gave d almost identical results. The amazing thing is that in many cases the performance under Windows 10 are slightly higher to those of machines running Windows 11. This would even reduce the performance of some AMD processors. On the other hand, TechSpot was able to observe some differences between versions updates and native versions.
Windows 11: slight performance improvements, but a heavy security device.
Good news though, overall performance is generally better on Windows 11. However, these improvements are hardly noticeable. Indeed, the differences observed between Windows 10 and 11 result in small percentage increases in areas such as general latency and performance. On the other hand, the new virtual security system has a considerable impact on the latter.
Indeed, like its predecessor, Windows 11 will include a security setting called Virtualization-Based Security. This uses hardware virtualization to increase system security and reduce operating system vulnerabilities. Some reports provided by Techspot indicate that this feature causes a loss of performance for users. Several analyzes even report declines ranging up to 25% on desktop or laptop computers.
Overall, TechSpot found that this feature can cause a 7% drop in performance in some cases, such as while playing video games. This option is enabled automatically after installing Windows 11. However, users can easily disable this feature. Windows strongly recommends its use, however.
