"... windows ME (yeah I'm old)"
Some people are such barstewards ...
Windows 11 received its first bundle of fixes this week, but AMD users hoping for respite from performance issues that have dogged their PCs were to be disappointed. In fact, for some, performance might have actually got a bit worse. It wasn't the news AMD fangirls and fanboys were hoping for. After AMD noted performance …
So not only do we have "must run on latest Intel Silicon" ("oops, forgot Surface!", it was that rushed out.) but it also has an oh-so-accidental borkage of AMD chips, so that Intel are now top for desktop performance again!
Am I the only one detecting the aroma of fish?
It's a HOG. It's stealing everything you have, and taking over the computer you shelled out for, but don't really own, and nobody wants back. We have a problem good people, we need a third choice, in a very bad way. We are currently Slaves to technology. Do you want the red pill, or the blue? They both end in annihilation, "choose your destroyer."
This just strikes me as being similar to the ordeal with XP SP3 systems with AMD chips not working correctly. At first everyone blamed Microsoft, but it turned out the culprit was HP/Compaq. They were lazy about making images for systems, that laziness bit them (or more properly, their customers) in the ass when Microsoft changed something with SP3.
In this case it sounds like AMD was doing some things to kind of game the system with Windows, which, ok, they want to provide the best performance for people using their hardware, that's understandable... but they were relying on the Windows process scheduler to remain the same, and evidence seems to point to Microsoft having made some changes (maybe further spectre mitigations?) which caused AMD's optimization efforts to backfire.
Sherlock, because clearly they need the best to get to the bottom of this.
I found it ran OK but there were far too many workarounds with the Start Menu and File explorer for it to be usable. I have a large collection of music FLAC files and there are folder icons of the image of the CD/ LP case. Imagine my surprise when I found out to make the system more streamlined they removed the preview from all the folder icons. Music and photos look the same. I thought that is it and rolled back to 10 which I only upgraded to in January 2020. I have advice to Windows 11 potential users. Don't bother it is a frustrating waste of time.
I have a Ryzen 5 3600, 2070 Super and Win 11, I play games and I havnt noticed anything any different. Tried F1 2020, RDR 2 and a bunch of other crap but I cant notice any slowdown. Maybe in my advancing years and my dodgy eyesight its seems to play games the same as Win 10, but apart from explorer occasionally taking its sweet time to show the drive contents, its been fine. Excpet the way it hides the icons next to the clock. That cheeses me off.
