Media: Windows 11 can degrade gaming performance by 28%

Windows 11 degrades performance in games on some PCs. This is the conclusion reached by the authors of the PC Gamer portal. The frame rate could drop by 28%.

Windows 11 has many security features enabled by default, and one of them can affect performance. This is Virtualization-Based Security (VBS), a process that uses hardware and software virtualization to protect the system by creating an isolated subsystem.

This helps prevent infection with viruses. With VBS, frame rates in Far Cry New Dawn were down 5%, in Horizon Zero Dawn by 25%, and in Metro Exodus by 24%.

Finally, Shadow of the Tomb Raider โ€” by a record 28% . PC Gamer noted that the problem only affects new PCs with OEM build of the new OS.

Those who upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 have nothing to worry about. Sure, if the VBS they had previously been disabled.

As a reminder, Windows 11 will be released on October 5, and owners of โ€œdozensโ€ will get the update for free.
