Microsoft's latest Windows 11 operating system turned out to be somewhat dangerous for AMD processor-based computers. Installation of this operating system reduces their performance by 15% in a number of applications, writes The Verge.
The problem affects a number of AMD processors, popular all over the world, including Russia. These are Ryzen 2000, 3000, 4000 and 5000 series chips on Zen+, Zen 2 and Zen 3 architectures. In other words, the problem affects all supported Windows 11 Ryzen processors.
In some cases, Epyc server processors start to "slow down". Owners of the latest versions of Athlon processors, which are also on the list of supported ones, have also suffered.
Gamers who prefer to play on PCs rather than consoles are the hardest hit. In video games, the performance of AMD chips after the transition to Windows 11 can drop by 10-15% of the nominal values. In normal programs, this figure is 3-5%.
