On the outgoing Windows 10, it was recently found that Intel's newer 13th Gen is less snappy than 10th Gen CPUs. Interestingly, it looks like modern Ryzen is also falling behind the older Intel chip.

Intel's hybrid CPUs are apparently struggling with latency issues as they can often be sluggish despite being much faster on paper than older CPUs like 10th or 11th gen, according to a report.
Last week, Microsoft released its Patch Tuesday for the month of March, and with it, the Moment 2 update was also made available to all. The latest feature update, though, maybe slowing down SSDs.
Microsoft is seemingly enabling VBS on Windows 10 as well, something which was limited to Windows 11 only previously. This could lead to potential performance loss as latest testing indicates.
Another day, another AMD bug has hit Windows 11. This new issue can drop the performance of Radeon GPUs by over 50%. AMD has confirmed the bug exists, though thankfully it looks like a rare issue.
AV-Comparatives recently released its Performance test for the month of October 2022. In the evaluation, Microsoft Defender was found to be the worst offender with the highest performance impact.
AV-TEST, which tests and ranks antivirus solutions, has conducted its first Windows 11-based security test. However, Defender, despite all of Microsoft's touting, has managed to come in last place.
Microsoft has issued a warning for those out there running Windows 11 on supported CPUs. The company has found that modern chips with the new VAES instruction are "susceptible to data damage".
A new report suggests that Microsoft Defender has a bug which is causing it to hog the CPU resources on a system using an Intel processor, leading to reduced performance. AMD is apparently unaffected.
In the latest performance impact test from AV-Comparatives, Microsoft's Defender has been one of worst performers of all, barely coming in second-last among 17 anti-malware products.
