While Microsoft has begun rolling out Windows 11 to devices around the world, and while the firm hopes to have it widely available by the summer of 2022, some people are opting for alternate methods to download and instal the new operating system.
Despite the updated system requirements, some users report that Windows 11 is still slower than Windows 10.
This is why Microsoft intends to prioritise performance and overall operating system reliability in the coming year, with the Windows developer team recently stating on Reddit that it wants Windows 11 to be lightning quick.
Substantial improvements coming next year
As spotted by Neowin, the Windows dev team says it’s waiting for feedback from users to know exactly what needs to be improved from a performance perspective.
“Performance will be an area of focus for us in 2022. A lot of that focus will go into startup/launch perf; in terms of UI elements rendering on the screen (after the framework is loaded), we’ve tested the scalability of doing things like putting 10k buttons on the screen, etc. Most of the UI elements render pretty quickly already, but it would be good to understand if there are specific UI element scaling/slowness issues you’re experiencing and we could take a look into that specific scenario,” a post on reddit reads.
“Internally, in addition to wanting to focus some of our our UX framework’s time on perf in 2022, we also have a dedicated team formed recently to tackle this topic more holistically. So there’s multiple things we’re collectively doing here to try and make sure we have a good perf story.”
Most likely, the next Windows 11 feature update will bring significant performance improvements, though right now, very little information is available regarding its ETA.
