Windows 11 will be Faster and More Efficient

Windows 11 boots faster and performs better in benchmarks than Windows 10. The latest version of Microsoft's OS will be moret than a visual facelift.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Windows 11 performs better than Windows 10 in selected benchmarks;
  2. Also the booting of the new system was tested and in this aspect it also fared better.

Windows 11 may offer not only a visual facelift, but also a significant performance boost in application usage. A comparison of the upcoming system with Windows 10 shows a few to several percent difference in performance in favor of Windows 11.

Youtuber Ben Anonymous decided to test the latest system from Microsoft (which, we remind, was recently leaked a few days before the official announcement) and compare its performance with Windows 10. First to be tested was booting. Windows 11 Pro Build 21996.1 booted in 13 seconds, which is 18.75% better than Windows 10 (16 seconds boot time). The system achieved equally good results when testing SSD data read and write in CrystalDiskMark.

  • Windows 10: Read - 2,930 MB/s, Write - 3,189 MB/s
  • Windows 11: Read - 3.448 MB/s, Write - 3.336 MB/s

So we are dealing with a better result both in reading (by 15%) and by 4.4% in writing. How this will translate to actual use of the system is hard to say at this point. Benchmarks rarely reflect the authentic experience of using programs.

I mention this because Windows 11 got a better result than Windows 10 also in 3DMark. Microsoft's latest system achieved a score of 7613 (CPU clocked at 4.9 GHz, achieved temperature - 99 degrees). W10 in the same test scored 6872 points with a CPU clocked at 4.8 GHz and a temperature seven degrees lower. This gives a score worse than the newer Windows by 9.74%.

Also in Geekbench 5 the new system performs better, both in the single-threaded test (1251 vs. 1138 points) and multi-threaded test (7444 vs. 6284 points). At this point, however, it is difficult to assess what changes have taken place under the hood of Windows and what impact they may have on resource usage. A conference is scheduled for June 24, where the next-gen system will be officially unveiled, and perhaps then we'll learn about any hardware improvements that may have been implemented.
