Since this article was first published, Windows Central has gone out and updated its data on test results. These turned out to be not entirely correct. Although Windows 11 provides some improvement in performance over Windows 10 according to these initial tests, but not as large as first assumed to be the case. Below is our article as it was published on June 19.
Windows 11 is expected to be officially unveiled on June 24, but a lot has become known about the system already now after an early version of the system was leaked. Windows 11 will be more than just a real visual update.
A person calling himself Ben Anonymous claims to have come across an official copy of Windows 11, and not just an early version of it, writes Windows Central. Ben has run Windows 11 through, among other things, the test bench Geekbench 5.
In Geekbench 5, Ben received 1,251 points for single-wire performance on his computer with Windows 11, against 1,138 points on the same machine with Windows 10. The machine also went cooler, 93 degrees at 4.9 GHz, against 97 degrees at 4.8 GHz for the Windows 10 machine.
In total, Ben got 9.04 percent better performance for single-threaded tasks in Geekbench 5, and 15.59 percent better performance for multi-threaded tasks.
More tests in, among other things, 3D Mark and the ssd speed test Crystaldiskmark can be viewed in the video above.
