A few weeks before the release of Windows 11, Microsoft has just gone into a little more detail about the performance of the new operating system. The company revealed in a video how the operating system would perform. Indeed, although the substructure is based on Windows 10, this Windows 11 incorporates several important changes in the way the operating system prioritizes applications and processes. In the end, for Microsoft, we will have a faster PC under Windows 11.
A faster PC with Windows 11?
Steve Dispensa, vice president of Enterprise Management at Microsoft, explains that the changes that have been put into the system’s code will allow Windows 11 to save an average of 32% of memory and 37% of processor usage. A heavy workload should no longer slow down applications running in the foreground. The system will prioritize these applications by allocating memory resources and CPU power to them. At the software level, Windows 11 will optimize power for the threads that need it, ensuring that power is transferred to where it is needed and not “wasted”.
Hybrid CPUs favored in Windows 11?
We will also have to take into consideration the management of multi-core CPUs, which also seems to have been improved. We will observe in particular the new hybrid CPUs such as the next Alder Lake-S which Intel boasts of being able to take advantage of Windows 11 much better than the competition… We will have to see how a gaming PC behaves with the new OS in terms of performance and see if other more “disturbing” changes such as the obligation of the TPM for Valorant, are not in progress. Finally, the emphasis was placed on the speed with which Windows 11 starts up after the standby modes. Microsoft thus indicates that Windows 11 will come out of its sleep state 25% faster than Windows 10.
