A rather interesting comparison of the performance of Windows 10 and Windows 11 in games has appeared on the Web. They were run sequentially on the same PC and the FPS were compared. At the same time, the load on the processor and video card drew upon itself – in Windows 11 it is consistently higher. But, it should be noted that the frame rate in Windows 11 is also consistently higher.
The test was carried out with a PC with the following configuration: Intel Core i7-10700K, MSI MAG Z490 Tomahawk, GeForce RTX 3090, 32 GB of RAM (2 16 GB DDR4-3600 MHz modules), 1 TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD. All games ran at Full HD resolution.
The list of games used for the test is as follows: Hitman 3, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, Watch Dogs: Legion, Far Cry: New Dawn, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Red Dead Redemption 2, Metro Exodus. It should be noted that all these results were obtained without the Nvidia driver released specifically for Windows 11. So in reality, in the final version of the new OS, the frame rate may be even higher, and the GPU load, on the contrary, is lower.
