Tested: AMD's Windows 11 Patch Wins Some, Loses Some


Update: We've added testing and commentary below to reflect our updated testing with both the Windows 11 and AMD chipset driver patches that became available last week.


Our real-world game testing didn't find any large performance changes, as some games benefit from the patches while others lose a slight amount of performance or remain the same, balancing out any gains in our overall measurements below.


We found that synthetic measurements of AMD's L3 latency and fabric have returned to normal. We still see a small reduction in L3 bandwidth measurements in Windows 11, but these don't appear to have a performance impact in most of our tested games. Read on for the updated article:

At least I don't play any of those types of games so hopefully I won't be affected on my new AMD laptop.
