Microsoft’s upcoming operating system, Windows 11, is set to provide something more exciting than just a fresh coat of paint. According to early benchmarks conducted by YouTuber Ben Anonymous of a leaked build that has apparently spread like wildfire online, Windows 11 is poised to offer performance increases of as much as 15 percent versus its current sibling, Windows 10. In addition to a quicker boot time (13 vs. 16 seconds), Ben found higher scores in both 3DMark Time Spy (CPU: 6,872 vs. 7,613, GPU: 6,927 vs. 7,426) and Geekbench (single core: 1,138 vs. 1,251, multi-core: 6,284 vs. 7,444). A 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10875H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER graphics card was used in these tests. Microsoft will lift the veil on Windows 11 and presumably show off all of its actual performance improvements this Thursday, June 24 at 11 a.m. ET.
It would seem that Microsoft is adding some new power management. The person that did the testing uninstalled any ASUS software that might have been controlling the fans, so everything that happened there was controlled by the OS. It was notable that the fans ran differently while running the tests, and as we all know, the cooler the CPU and GPU stay, the better the performance is.
