Last week Windows 11 was leaked, a preview but fully executable version can be installed since. Many users do the same and test more and more in the operating system. A user wanted to know if and how the performance of Windows 11 was improved.
As a reminder, Windows 11 was leaked to the public Tuesday last week, and since then Microsoft has been trying with all its might to minimize the “public relations disaster” and remove ISO from the network. But of course, that’s no use, as no DMCA complaint or takedown notification will go back and close the loopholes.
The first glimpses we got of this unofficial version of Windows 11 were mostly about what users will see first. They revolved around the very visible changes made to the Start menu and the taskbar, as well as a few nudges to the platform’s thematic and multitasking functions.
A YouTuber named Ben Anonymous also took to Windows 11 and took a closer look at the updated operating system. However, he claims his version is not the one that was leaked. Ben Anonymous mostly looked under the hood to see how the operating system behaves.
And its findings, if confirmed later in the final version, are more than promising. The title of his video suggests it alone, according to which the benchmarks of Windows 11 “destroy” those of Windows 10. For this, the YouTuber took a laptop equipped, among other things, with an Intel Core i7-10875 processor. and a great GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card from NVIDIA.
Promising Results – But Are They Right?
The boot time was 13 seconds, which is 3 seconds less than Windows 10. In 3DMark and Geekbench, Ben Anonymous was able to achieve significantly higher values or scores in many disciplines. However, these results should be taken with some caution. Because it is possible that these results were not obtained in a completely “clean” way (but everything has yet to be confirmed or denied by secondary sources).
Windows Central, for example, thinks the benchmarks shown in the video are inaccurate. While Windows 10 has been measured with the “recommended” settings, Windows 11 used the high-performance model. We should therefore not take the benchmarks indicated at face value. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be improvements, as other reports promise improved performance.
All in all, the final version of Windows 11 could offer minor, but significant improvements for all kinds of computer applications. It might not be dramatic performance jumps, but it might be enough to satisfy Windows users who need things to “run” and run even better without breaking their workflows.
