Windows11 has officially started to push yesterday, I believe that many friends have upgraded experience.
There have been reports that Windows 11 will feature minor improvements in gaming that will lead to more consistent game performance. However,It's amazing to stumble over several new security features in Windows 11, which can lead to a performance loss of up to 30% in special cases。
In order to verify the real situation, foreign media Tom. S Hardware tested two new security features for Windows 11, VBS and HVCI.It turns out that not only does there exist some performance losses, but there are also differences in performance for different CPU brands and models。
In multiple tests,After VBS and HVCI are enabled, the game performance deteriorates to some extent. Although the rumored performance loss of up to 30% is not present, the performance loss of up to 8.6% is not to be underestimated.
The Intel platform was particularly notable, with many games reaching 5% or more. After VBS and HVCI are enabled, the performance of i7 of the 11th generation is basically far behind that of i7 of the 10th generation. While AMD platform performance loss is high and low, some games are basically not affected. And because of the huge improvement from Zen2 to Zen3, the performance loss didn't erase the generation difference, and even the Zen3's performance advantage over the 11th-generation i7 remained.
Windows11 pushed TPM 2.0 security certification and excluded a number of older chips, probably because two new security features would have a serious impact on performance. And even the latest processors can't escape performance losses.If you happen to have spent a lot of money to upgrade to an 11th-generation Core processor, there's a good chance that these two new security features will make your experience worse after upgrading to Windows 11, which is like throwing good money after bad.
The good news is that VBS and HVCI will not be enabled by default unless the Windows11 upgrade is a special case or a special OEM version of the system. If you find that the computer performance is abnormal, the investigation is fruitless also might as well look at these two options, you may be able to find clues.
