Windows 11 vs. Windows 10 Performance: Gaming and Applications

Just shows Windows 11 is window dressing. Underneath the UI it's all the same, no new kernel, no new file system, just a reskin. Sure we hear new BIG.little cpus will get a boost, and I'll bet that would have happened with the Win 22H1 update anyway. Have they even removed all traces of legacy 16bit/32bit code yet, is it truly 64bit all the way through?
I doubt that. Those legacy features are probably just hidden under layers of layers of dressing.

Much more interested in file management. Is search better? Can we still do incremental backups using something like file history? At some point Mr. Gates wanted a databased file system. Very useful in theory, but never put into practice. Does it look like it might have finally gained traction?

At any OS's core, is a disk operating system layer wrapped around a kernel. That's the part that has never been really improved. The 'disks' have changed mightily, the DOS, not so much.

They've been collecting major changes together towards 21H2 for a while now, ever wonder why both 20H2 and 21H1 were minor releases? There is no major underlying kernel changes so benchmarks will show it to be basically what is it (Windows 10.whatever) But obviously there is enough here to warrant a new version number or they simply wouldn't have bothered.

It has to be aimed primarily toward providing a scheduler capable of handling big.little processors. I'd be surprised to see much if any performance difference with existing hardware.

Yup I called this a while back on here. Actually before the leaks on Windows 11 lol!

This testing run does not fall in line with my results, nor the results found by others(for example Brian at TechYesCity). Some apps are around 5% faster and games are the same with some running about 6% faster.

As for the people making comparisons to Windows ME, ME was actually the best 9X kernel OS when properly configured. It's problem was that it was not properly configured OOTB, it needed a few key tweaks in order to run optimally after which it ran with near perfection.

However, making a comparison to the leak of Windows 11 is foolish on a level that is beyond silly for the following reason: It's an ALPHA prerelease build! Meaning it's not finished. Which also means the harsh conclusions & judgments about it in the above comments are without any merit whatsoever.
 
MS was spot on with announcing Win10 would be the last...This 11 leak is 10 a Wolf in Sheeps clothing...Feels smoother with the mouse movement BTA I did one fresh install...I prefer the side bar vs the Mac look as well ...

Yes, it's the typical M$ mindset. That's why it is a hateful company IMHO. Anyway, there are tweakers for you to customize Windows in depth. There is a good one from Windows club.

History repeats itself.

Like someone said before I had one of the last Nokia Windows phone, it was actually a fun simple reliable phone. ( Yeah I know people hate me even more now on this site lol) but it was just quick and simple. I love the glance feature, loooong battery life simple UI with tiles easy and hassle free operation during my fast past job that was 90% dealing in freezing temps WITH thick gloves on. Tiles were customizable in many ways one might think.

To be honest it was nice having a "different" phone.

What's the point of talking about Windows 11...When you just can't have the information of the most important parts of this OS?!

I want to know about the requirements, the 'services', the update model, telemetry, the bloatwares and all Microsoft crap they're forcing this time.

They can't get Windows 10 right, functional and stable... How this Windows 11 can be any good?

Are people actually still expecting /gains/ in performance upgrading?

care to point to a case where Windows ever did that on base hardware?

I can think if three times in history an upgrade made a difference for Windows.
95 being a 32-bit jump from 16bit 3.x. Bringing it close to the quality of NT.

XP, making all windows NT.
XPx64. Bringing 64bit.

With few exceptions ANY os is unlikely to do anything major for performance on current hardware.

This is happening more and more. It's really quite annoying.
