Weekly review and outlook: A week full of Windows 11 days

In the 40th week of 2021, Windows 11 was clearly the focus of the reporting. ComputerBase accompanied the start on October 5th with various reports, which were also well received by the readership. Above all, the benchmarks and problems were of great interest.

Everything you need to know to get started

ComputerBase has published numerous comprehensive articles, guides, and tests for Windows 11. For whom there will be the free update from Windows 10 to Windows 11 when, on which systems it can be installed and how and what influence the hardware (above all the “Trusted Platform Module” (TPM) and the CPU) have on it, was discussed as well as the loss of performance due to the optional Virtual-based Security (VBS) and the performance of Windows 11 in games and applications.

Two of these articles ended up in the top 5 without any problems, especially the differences in performance between Windows 10 and Windows 11 on multiple systems were in demand in the community. It turned out that Intel’s processors already get along pretty well with Windows 11, while AMD’s not quite as well. And that’s exactly where the news of the week hit again.

AMD officially announced that there are still at least two construction sites with their processors of the Ryzen family, which are officially supported by Windows 11. In the worst-case scenario that AMD has determined in eSports games, the performance drop compared to the same Windows 10 system can be 15 percent – these are worlds for hardware nowadays. The first patches are already being tested in Insider Previews; according to the current plan, they are to be added as an update in October. The fault is that the performance of the large L3 cache in the CPUs is far too low.

In a few weeks, when other things have been tackled, the download, number 2 in the news charts, can ultimately be worthwhile for everyone. At the moment you don’t have to do this, anyone who uses a well-functioning Windows 10 system can easily wait.


It will probably be a little quieter in the coming week, but some NDA content is already in preparation. Of course, it is not allowed to reveal what is coming when, here and now, but the rumor mill had mentioned one or the other date over the last few weeks. And behind the scenes, the first preparations for the big hardware issue are already underway in the fourth quarter.

With this reading material in your luggage, the editors wish you a relaxing Sunday!
