Windows 11 catches up with Windows 10 in performance

Apparently, Microsoft is close to fulfilling its promise that the new Windows 11 operating system will work better than the previous version.

When Windows 11 became available, tests showed that Windows 10 actually delivers better performance on the same hardware for certain tasks, especially video editing and rendering. Now, Puget Systems, an American computer assembly company well known for its system tests, has updated its Windows 11 study.

With new hardware such as 12th generation Intel processors that were designed with Windows 11 features in mind, experts hoped that Windows 11 would gain a performance advantage over the seven-year-old Windows 10. However, the miracle did not happen.

Running the test on systems with Intel Core i9-12900K, AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, AMD Threadripper Pro 5975WX, and AMD Threadripper Pro 5995WX processors, Puget Systems found that Windows 10 continues to lead performance in Premiere Pro.

However, in other tests the gap narrowed, with Windows 11 taking the lead on some tasks, such as CUDA’s V-Ray mode.

Puget Systems notes that the two operating systems are now fairly close in performance. Both operating systems have their advantages in certain tests.

Compared to the first results of Windows 11, this is a big step forward. However, Windows 11 still doesn’t outperform the old OS in many tests.
