Microsoft talked about optimizations for Windows 11

The Redmond company claims that with Windows 11, they thoroughly laid out the topic of processor management. In the background, there are certainly different approaches from manufacturers that have emerged over the past few years. AMD has been working with core complexes since 2017, and Intel will soon launch a new hybrid design. The latter development, codenamed Alder Lake, mixes two processor cores with different levels of performance, between which the Windows 11 task scheduler will be able to differentiate and optimally allocate resources.

Microsoft has changed the default priority management with modern CPUs in mind. With Windows 11, active applications running in the foreground are given higher priority than before. This can happen, for example, if an application with a high CPU load is running in the background and the user wants to start another application.

A similar approach is added to the Edge browser, in which the currently active tab is given high priority. Meanwhile, the other unused tabs are put to sleep by the software, which saves processor time and memory, and thus battery life for notebooks. With the ability to run at Sleeping Tabs, the Edge will be able to save up to 30 percent of memory, Microsoft promises. Windows Update has also been optimized so that updates can be installed with up to 40 percent lower bandwidth.

In addition to making better use of various critical resources, the revival of the system has also been improved in Redmond. According to the promise, Windows 11-compliant “plecsnis” machines will recover 25 percent faster from sleep. At the same time, the speed of biometric identification has improved, thanks to which Windows Hello promises 30 percent faster access. It is also to be welcomed that Microsoft has been working on the space requirements of the system. Most built-in applications are only unpacked or downloaded on first start-up by Windows 11, which does not even download updates for these apps before use.

Last but not least, Microsoft also addressed security and reliability. Windows 11 was built along the needs of a zero-trust work environment, which explains the TPM 2.0 hardware requirement criticized by many. Additional system can only be used in UEFI mode, legacy mode and CSM are not supported at all. However, some devices may require a manufacturer-supplied DCH driver, which promises 99.98 percent “crash-free” reliability in Windows 11.
