Some more info about Win 11 here:

That was very good.  :thumbsup:

Saw this today:

Windows 11 doesn't play nicely with AMD Ryzen processors

QuoteWindows 11 is finally here, but anyone rocking a PC or laptop powered by an AMD Ryzen processor would probably be best advised to hold off on pressing that update button.

AMD has issued notification of a 'Windows 11 Performance Variation in Certain Applications on Compatible AMD Processors' over on its support pages.

The company, along with Microsoft, has "determined that compatible AMD processors may exhibit reduced performance in certain applications when running Windows 11". It seems Windows 11 is causing L3 cache latency to triple in Ryzen chips.

I've heard it said online that many people were unhappy with with win 11 but AMD versions were not mentioned.  So my comments on the video would be he speaks rather quickly but does put in a lot of info,  it helps to go to full screen when watching.  I guess Microsoft is doing the download world wide which quite an undertaking.  Once again we are hit with the latest and greatest.  I'm doing every thing I can to stay out of the Microsoft download and purchased a bootable USB drive to upgrade.

Yes I watched a video about that this morning, it seems they will have to make a patch to work with Ryzen's large amount of cache, I'm sure it will get sorted out.

Freddy

Yes they are bound to if they know what's good for them  ;D

I doubt I will upgrade until the new year anyway.

  As I had mentioned somewhere to discontinue trying to work with Microsoft I had ordered a   $38.22
Windows 11 OS install /Bootable 16GB USB Drive for Legacy & UEFI Compatible
You should get it by Oct 16. Available at E Bay
I should think it would be similar the the Microsoft download and get updates as required.
I find it impossible to work with Microsoft and wish you guys luck but thinking it is a world wide project it must be so difficult

All I can say at present is that my Windows 10 is not broken, ergo, I'm not going to Fix it!!  ;D

  Take your time I think Microsoft is going to support win 10 till 2025 but the computer I' d think will still continue working.  I still have some CD's being shipped to me that are taking a very long time to get to me.

   I just installed Win 11 in the Asrock computer, I had bought a Win 11 flash drive from E bay and it was a quick and easy.  All down loads and documents were still in the computer after install so really nothing to worry about loosing anything in the computer at least with with the flash drive.  I had spent a lot of time at the Microsoft site and got no where.

For those who have already installed or are thinking about installing Windows 11 keep in mind that it is not any more secure than Windows 10 or Windows 7.

With that in mind, it is not the Windows 11 at fault but rather the never-ending group of cretins that seek out every crack, flaw, and potential weakness in the OS itself, with the intent of doing harm.

Buyer or User beware!

Yep!

Noticed that AMD had made some patch, but accidentally cleared it before seeing exactly what they did.

The problem with not upgrading is that you get left using an operating system that gets less and less patches until it becomes very unsafe to use, no one who goes online should be using windows 7 these days.

The wise thing to do would be to give MS a while to patch the Win 11 bugs found and then install it, I certainly don't want to be left behind using an old OS. Windows 10 isn't dead yet but in time it will be just like all the other windows versions.


Carl2

 Well I've been using Windows 11 for a while, as I have stated I bought a USB drive two install windows 11, sooner or later I would expect there would be an update. I had been pretty upset with the Microsoft site to install windows 11 but the operating system I think is just great and have not encountered any problems. No rush do it in your own good time.
