    Has anyone ran any performance comparisons yet between Win 10 and Win 11.

    Lots of stories about significant performance drops.

    Anyone here with a 5800X or other Zen 3 CPU?

    Thanks :)

    Just done my laptop with online upgrade, took 1 hour and everything seems ok. Only thing i had to do was remove all shortcuts icons again, which was done via regedit entry

    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-10885H CPU @ 2.40GHz
    Installed RAM 32.0 GB (31.8 GB usable)
    RTX2080S full version

    Shortcuts icons? Not sure I follow.

    I did notice the added bloat apps installed though like some games, WhatsApp was preinstalled among others. They are Windows Store apps though so easily uninstalled. I also tidied up the start menu all apps area as it became cluttered. I now have one big open list of apps I can scroll to find without trawling through folders etc.

    For reference there are two locations start menu items are stored in Windows:

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    Depending on the type of install done for each app, the shortcut will reside in either of these places. I like to keep things organised hence why manually managing this sort of stuff is my preference.

    I see my old spare laptop fails on the CPU only. Everything else passes. Will that be an issue?

    Nope, if the media creation tool lets you install it after accepting the prompt, then can't see any issues resulting. A lot of people have already done it this way.

    PC meets everything with the exception of secure boot being switched on. Can't seem to enable it in the BIOS (follow the instructions in the manual/guides online but can't seem to get it into user mode). Quick google states that I have to change the format of my boot drive.

    Might use this as an excuse to do a fresh install

    What's so funny?




    Microsoft has a history of new OS being worse than the one its replaced, they usually fix it 'eventually'

    Those links might not be true or they could be early access teething issues and its all fine now, its why i'm asking, i have the option to update but i'm not going to do it if it turns my 5800X in to a 3800X.

    If some one here with a Zen 3 CPU doesn't mind running a quick CPU-Z benchmark i would appreciate it, thanks. :)

    I can have a go but I only have a 3900X. Those links are quite old now.

    For the first time in years I'm actually jealous of people running an MS OS.

    But I'm not forking out £120 for it.

    I think my desktop doesn't have secure boot/tpm?

    I'm not actually sure.

    I'm not fussed if I can't upgrade. Win 10 is fine.
    But I won't be updating my surface book if I can't update my desktop

    So what's the catch regarding ftpm?

    I do not have a TPM chip, but I can enable ftpm in the bios.

    I don't use any encryption like bit locker etc, so I assume everytime I do a bios update no issues will occur assuming I enable ftpm again.

    You can convert it with the tool already installed onto your Windows.


    Fairly straightforward, just watch the vid
