This October, HEXUS published a report revealing that early Windows 11 users are experiencing issues with some of the AMD Ryzen processors. After that, both Microsoft and AMD revealed that they are working on a fix for the Windows 11 issues affecting Ryzen features, including CPU’s L3 cache latency and preferred core technology. The latter has proved its worth in many-multi core processors. 

When we first reported on the AMD Ryzen Windows 11 flaws, we come across reports suggesting that solutions were on the way for the OS. Microsoft delivered a new Windows 11 test build, 22000.282, to Insider testers in the Beta and Release Preview channels just before the weekend, midway through October.

With one of the first batches of fixes for a new OS, there are bound to be a lot of them. In total, the release notes for version 22000.282 contain over 50 fixes to consider. You can read the fixes on the Windows blog, but it’s more of a bullet point list than a complete blog post, which is likely due to the lack of space.

The changes address a wide range of critical features in Windows 11, including the Start Menu, File Explorer, PowerShell, and many others. The first bugfix on the list states that “We fixed an L3 caching problem that could hinder performance in some applications on devices with AMD Ryzen CPUs after upgrading to Windows 11 (original version).

AMD users will obviously benefit from this Windows 11 fix

This is a critical update for AMD users who switched to Windows 11. AMD users will no longer notice a performance hit of up to 15% in gaming after installing this patch/update. There is no mention of ‘preferred core’ technology or CPPC2 in the extensive bug fix list, indicating that the change is still in the works.
