On October 15th, Microsoft released the new Windows 11 Patch up update, which contains several fixes, including one for AMD CPU issues and another for a fault that led some customers to see the old Windows 10 taskbar rather than the new Windows 11 taskbar.
Both AMD and Microsoft have acknowledged that running Windows 11 on specific AMD CPUs has caused some difficulties, notably in terms of gaming and demanding tasks. This is most likely connected to the L3 cache issue, as well as a “preferred” core issue that was impeding thread scheduling on a CPU’s fastest core.
According to Microsoft, the latest update should finally resolve the performance concerns for AMD Ryzen CPUs running Windows 11, although it does not prevent the build from using the preferred core, which will remain an annoyance.
Microsoft also claims that the latest version will address the issue with the new taskbar’s centring.
Several more fixes are included in the release notes for this new version. According to Microsoft and AMD, the fix for the AMD chip issue should be available to mainstream Windows 11 consumers by the end of October.
