Microsoft updates making things worse Quelle surprise.


From the article: AMD warned last week that its chips are experiencing performance issues in Windows 11, and now Microsoft’s first update to its new OS has reportedly made the problems worse. TechPowerUp reports that it’s seeing much higher latency, which means worse performance, after the Windows 11 update went live yesterday. AMD and Microsoft found two issues with Windows 11 on Ryzen processors. Windows 11 can cause L3 cache latency to triple, slowing performance by up to 15 percent in certain games. The second issue affects AMD’s preferred core technology, that shifts threads over to the fastest core on a processor. AMD says this second bug could impact performance on CPU-reliant tasks.


Just wait a month or two before installing. It’s like usual. New Windows release is always buggy, people blow it out of proportion and go full anti-vaxxer on it for years. Remember there’s still people insisting on running windows 7 and complain that most games don’t support it anymore. All because they had one or a few bad experiences with updating to windows 10, or simply because they read something bad about it online. Another decade, same shit.


Just buy new hardware, people! /s Blender on Linux already outran Windows by a healthy bit, I wonder how much bigger the difference would be now.


This was nowhere near done in the oven yet, it needed a good while longer, hell the damn component shortage was the perfect excuse to delay it.
