If you are planning to install Windows 11 on your AMD Ryzen-equipped system, you might want to wait for a while. If you have already upgraded your system to Windows; you should be patient. That’s because AMD officially acknowledged that Windows 11 issues are slowing down its Ryzen processors, resulting in a 15% performance drop in some circumstances. However, AMD has stated that a fix would be available soon.
Windows 11 Issues that are slowing down AMD Ryzen Processors
Microsoft is well aware of the problems that PCs with AMD Ryzen CPUs are experiencing. The first is that Windows 11 triples the L3 cache latency, potentially degrading performance by 3 to 5%. According to AMD, performance in a game like eSports has dropped by 10% to 15%.

The other issue is AMD’s “preferred core” technology’s inability to schedule threads on the fastest core of a processor. Therefore, apps that rely on the performance of several CPU threads suffer performance degradation. Performance degradation is more severe on CPUs with more than 8 cores and a TDP of more than 65W.
AMD and Windows have both said that they are “investigating these known issues in the hope of finding a remedy via software updates.” Also, AMD is currently working on a Windows upgrade as well as a software update; both of which AMD claims will be available in October. The updates should resolve these difficulties, which will be welcome news to those who have already upgraded to Windows 11 on AMD Ryzen processors. Those who are still planning to upgrade should do so when the critical updates are released.
