Windows 11 is officially out, but if you have an AMD Ryzen processor you might want to wait a bit for the update: the company reports that its chips could have issues with the new OS that could cause a drop. performs. at 15% in some cases.
AMD and Microsoft have found two main issues with Windows 11 on Ryzen. The first is that Windows 11 can triple the latency of the L3 cache. AMD says the issue could cause 3-5% performance degradation in most affected applications, while some games (AMD specifically calls those “commonly used for eSports”) could experience performance drops of 10-15. %.
Windows 11 is also having issues with AMD’s “preferred kernel” technology, which typically aims to move threads to the fastest core of a processor. AMD warns that users might see performance issues on CPU dependent tasks, especially on processors with more than eight cores of approximately 65W TDP.
AMD and Microsoft have already confirmed that they are “actively investigating these known issues to resolve them through software updates.” The two companies promise that a Windows update and a software update are planned for later this month in an attempt to fix these issues. But in the meantime, you might want to stick with Windows 10 until AMD and Microsoft sort things out.
