I secretly fear this is Windows Me 2.0.
There's not any big new amazing features, but the interface does look nicer and generally it feels more modern.
dont judge the performance based on a vm, they are known to run like crap at the moment.
It also has some other technical upgrades, but nothing that matters right now. Supposedly DirectStorage will be better in Windows 11, since it has changes necessary to fully implement it. So while 10 gets it it won't be as good supposedly. Also Windows 11 has a new scheduler the source of some consternation, at the moment, that will be needed to properly support new processors. Also at some point it is getting the ability to run android apps.Yeah, you can stay on 10 if you like. You are not missing much. I think about the only reason that would be worthwhile is the Auto-HDR for games, but I haven't tried it yet.
And the WSL2 for running Linux is improved, you can run full Linux GUI apps (but I don't know why you'd want to since mostly all the best Linux GUI apps are cross-platform).
Otherwise it is mostly a visual thing, but the new design is welcome.
i think its actually for the beta channel, public is supposed to be on tues.you test it? does it really work? cause i got massive performance loss with 11
I installed it on the Dev version and it seems to have fixed the L3 cache issue.i think its actually for the beta channel, public is supposed to be on tues.
im not sure if it did actually fix it, 'cause im not paying for aida64 to test it. i honestly didnt see/feel any difference with it "broken".
ive only tried it with pga 2k21 so far but i THINK it works, the game does look better but there is no indicator if its kicked on or not, theres supposedly a list of "supported" games....I think about the only reason that would be worthwhile is the Auto-HDR for games, but I haven't tried it yet.
my cinebench20 scores were below a 1700x before the fix.....they seem to be back to normal now.....gonna test 23 and see how it goesis there a free version of aida64 that does the mem testing? i d/led the trial but it covers everything up, basically useless as a trial. or are you guys testing it buying aida?
Yeah, its the i7-7560U and doesn't seem listed. Will try the reg hack.There are only a select few 7th gen CPUs supported. You can check this list:
I'm guessing your PC isn't on the list, so you can do this registry tweak to get past the check.
However, Microsoft has said they might not support your PC if it's not approved, although the most recent Windows Update did in fact work on unsupported PCs.

just install it via the iso and accept the "warning"Don't like the phased rollout. I don't even see it on a Surface Pro.
Also I have a HTPC with no TPM which is annoying. Hopefully I can get my hands on a TPM-less version of Windows when it comes out for the China etc.
7 work if installed from an ISO, but is not offered the upgrade. But your better off Intel series 4-7 lack some features so win 11 software emulates them and tanks performance by as much as 20% if you encounter a scenario that requires them.So, my XPS 9360 with the i7-7k series processor still shows not compatible with Windows 11. I had the dev running on it till I reinstalled 10 to get the full release and now it won't let me. I thought they said the 7 series was allowed to work, but guess not. Ugh.
See my post for how to get past the check.Hopefully I can get my hands on a TPM-less version of Windows when it comes out for the China etc.
