Windows 11 – Hardware Limits and Startup Bugs | c’t uplink 40.0

In the current episode, c’t uplink, everything revolves around the start of Windows 11. Microsoft has started the rollout, but hardly anyone is getting an automatic update at the moment. We explain how to initiate the update manually, how strictly Microsoft enforces the hardware specifications, how to bypass the requirements – and what problems there were at the start.

First users report performance problems. Some AMD Ryzen CPUs currently run slower under Windows 11, and there are also losses in some benchmarks when the HVCI security feature is activated. The former should be fixed in a patch soon, the latter is unlikely to be noticed in everyday life, estimates Christof Windeck. He and the c’t hardware team are currently testing on various computers where there is still a problem.

Overall, Windows 11 is already running relatively smoothly, is the conclusion of Jan Schüßler in the c’t uplink. Microsoft also fixed some bugs at the last minute before the release date that Jan had criticized a few days earlier in the actually final version. So far, the promised option of starting Android apps in Windows 11 has not made it into the release.

Also present: Achim Barczok, Jan Schüßler, Christof Windeck
