Compare gaming performance on Windows 10 and Windows 11

Since the time Windows 11 was officially released to the public, or even before, there has been a lot of talk and controversy around the benefits and losses of gaming performance when moving from Windows 10. to Windows 11.

In fact, Windows 11 is touted by Microsoft as a platform that powers “great” gaming, and some hardware developers themselves, such as Intel, also publicly claim their products. optimized for compatibility on Windows 11. However, for the most part these are just “generic” claims that carry heavy marketing. What users need is actual evaluation data, about the correlation in the gaming support of Windows 10 and Windows 11, on typical hardware settings.

To partially answer this question, the Tom’s Hardware team conducted a series of in-depth real-world assessments to look at gaming performance on Windows 11 and Windows 10, with hardware options coming from both AMD. Radeon and Nvidia GeForce. Thereby specifying possible differences in the form of specific numbers. The two GPU models used for the review include the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. These are all the top graphics cards on the market at the moment, and have similar performance. In addition to increasing objectivity and detail, testing has been carried out with a series of different games, all of which are popular on the market at the moment.

The results obtained are as follows:

Overall, it can be seen that with a hardware setup based on AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT, the difference in gaming performance between the two operating systems seems to be not too significant and quite difficult to feel in practice:

“AMD RX 6900 XT has pretty consistent performance across both versions of Windows, in which the overall average fps difference is around 0.3%, especially the biggest difference is just under 2 %. Even the minimum fps is only a maximum of 5.5% difference.”

On the opposite side, the difference in gaming performance between Windows 10 and Windows 11 on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be slightly larger. But overall is still very small and relatively stable.

Collectively, across all tests with 14 different games, the results show a difference in overall performance between Windows 10 and Windows 11 at all three resolution options (1080p, 1440p, and Windows 11). 4K) is less than 1%. There was only one case where Win10 was 4% faster (RTX 3080 Ti in Far Cry 6) and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was always 3% faster, but the real feel won’t be too different. Sometimes Windows 10 is a bit faster and sometimes Windows 11 excels, but in reality there isn’t any significant change.
