Win 11 gets a huge win in some of the games tho, for both Intel and AMD. Rainbow Six for example. Big difference compared to 10 and 11 with VBS

Seems like either OS you choose right now and you're good. Want more, throw in some overclocking on cpu's that can do it and even better.

Gaming was ok for the 5800X, but it mostly got trounced in desk top apps with a few exceptions. Still it does it at much lower watts, so hopefully Zen3+ will reduce the margin but will the 3D cache see power usage increase much?

Roll on Raptor Lake, Zen 4 and hopefully by then Windows 11 will be much more polished, the smart scheduler will be sorted, DDR5 comes with much better specs and prices, as that should be a great battle.

3D V-cache will only boost performance in applications that can utilize it. It won't be an across the board 15 or so percent AMD is claiming. If that's what they are claiming anyway. It's not going to be anywhere near a generational difference in performance. I see it coming in at less than 8% average difference in games.

The L3 power consumption I don't know. If it's always drawing power, then it could consume a bit, or a lot.

We'll see what happens.

VBS isn't enabled by default on clean W11 installs or upgrades. It's more of an OEM thing.
