Windows 11 is apparently faster than Windows 10

On June 24, Microsoft is holding an event to unveil the
upcoming Windows version, which is not going to be another
variant of Windows 10.

Microsoft has been dropping hints about the “next generation of
Windows” since the Ignite 2021 developer conference, with the
latest teaser coming from the company’s YouTube and Twitter
accounts.

While the leaked Windows 11 build has revealed new visual
improvements, we don’t know if the next-gen OS will be faster
than Windows 10 or not. That changes now, thanks to the
benchmark of the leaked build, which confirms previous reports
that Windows 11 will offer performance improvements on select
hardware.

New benchmark tests have been carried out to find the changes
made to the Windows scheduler in the leaked
build. Benchmark details:

  • Windows 10 version 21H1 (May 2021 Update) vs a leaked build
    of Windows 11.
  • Samsung Galaxy Book S with the Lakefield Core i7-L16G7.
  • Base drivers updated using Samsung’s built-in software.

Windows benchmarks

As you can see in the below test results, Windows 11 appears to
be slightly faster than Windows 10 May 2021 Update.

In GeekBench 5 test, Windows 11 offers a 5.8% boost in the
multi-threaded tests and 2% for single-core. The result
indicates a minor improvement in performance and it’s not
exciting, but we’re expecting further improvements when the
operating system is finalized and ready for consumers.

Benchmark web test

Windows 11 also seems to be faster than Windows 10 21H1 when it
comes to web browsing.

In BrowserBench tests, the leaked build runs Chrome v91 10%
faster than 21H1 (May 2021 Update).

Benchmark 3D test

Cinebench R23, which attempts to give a “real-world” benchmark
reading of the power inside the test machine, revealed that the
leaked build is nearly 8.2% faster in the single-threaded test.

This result is based on three different tests and the Core
i5-L16G7 processor has been faster with Windows 11 in all
experiments.

3DMark test saw a minor performance regression, which is not
surprising as the drivers are not optimized for the leaked
update.

Microsoft is working on massive scheduling updates

Overall, Windows 11 is faster than its predecessor in early
tests and this was expected, according to previous reports.

Intel and Microsoft are apparently working to optimize the
performance of Windows 11, according to sources familiar with
the development. Intel has already confirmed its
12th-generation Alder Lake will use a combination of normal
cores and power-efficient cores.

Reports suggest that
Microsoft is working on “massive scheduling updates” to
improve the performance of systems with hybrid CPUs.

Windows update will optimize the built-in scheduler for hybrid
CPUs, a change that would benefit systems with normal cores and
low-power cores, such as Intel Alder Lake and ARM’s big.LITTLE.

The next version of Windows, which will be announced on 24
June, will launch around the same time as Alder Lake in
October.
