Improving the performance of Windows 11 will be a major area of attention in future updates to the operating system. This was already before launch, but like other sections of the promised ones (see Android Subsystem for Windows), they haven’t finished being rounded off when the first version launches.
Microsoft released the stable version 1.0 of the Windows Application Development Kit and the Windows programming team decided to do an AUA (Ask Us Anything) in the sub-forum that reddit has active to follow. Windows 11 news. During the session, some users complained about the slow user interface on Windows 11 and the development team confirmed that they are working specifically to resolve this issue.
“Performance will be an area we will be focusing on in 2022. Much of this focus will be on startup / launch performance, especially rendering of UI elements where we are testing scalability aspects like the display of 10,000 buttons on the screen and others. Most UI elements are showing up pretty quickly already, but it would be nice to know if there are any specific UI elements scaling / slowness issues so that we can analyze this. specific scenario“”, They explained.
“Internally, in addition to dedicating part of the time of the general user experience program to performance, we also a dedicated team recently formed to tackle this issue in a more comprehensive way. There are several things that we collectively do here to try to make sure the system has a good track record of performance. “, they announce. Ultimately, Microsoft is working on it, and next year’s major system update, Windows 11 22H2, is expected to improve overall system performance, and especially user interface interaction.
Windows 11 performance
Microsoft has done a good job launching Windows 10 in terms of performance and optimization. It worked great on newer hardware and on older machines. Probably thinking that the majority of users of previous systems would use the free updater.
For Windows 11, Microsoft has promised that the system should feel more agile and responsive than Windows 10 and not just with new platforms the system has been specially optimized for (like Intel’s Alder Lake) but also under the same material.
After a few months of use (since the first previous version we tested) we have noticed some of these improvements, such as the performance of applications that run in the foreground after changes in management and allocation of the memory. Higher resources, faster recovery from sleep modes, or better use of GPU bandwidth with the DirectStorage API.
But all of these improvements are very very light, without the promised impact in the ad system, as it usually happens. And it is that you can optimize the kernel and eliminate the legacy components, but it is not possible to work wonders with the same hardware. And if you want to improve the performance of Windows 11, some user interface interactions are one of the points for improvement. Microsoft claims to be there.
