Microsoft has released a cumulative update for Windows 11 (KB5007215), with it, AMD can finally make the strong performance at the time of release play a role. The fix for the L3 cache problem has been resolved, and it should now be extended to machines everywhere, as well as security updates and patches for other Windows 11 issues.
As we reported at the end of last month, AMD has previously released fixes for this issue, but these fixes are now integrated into the operating system itself. This should mean that more AMD users can use the true performance of their chips and do not need to apply any updates from AMD or Microsoft.
There is a short video Microsoft’s support site The above is the content of the patch, the first is the L3 cache problem that affects AMD’s poor performance. Not many details are provided here. Simply put, “a L3 cache problem, some of which are equipped with AMD Ryzen processors have encountered application performance problems”, which has now been resolved.
Another resolved issue is the new start and taskbar not working properly after upgrading from Windows 10.
This is a problem I have seen with my own eyes. Although my main PC runs Windows 11 Insider Preview without problems, when I upgraded to Windows 11, I couldn’t use the Start menu at all, and the taskbar was dead.
I resolved this issue by creating a new user account, which basically performed a clean installation, so it’s nice to see that Microsoft has resolved this issue for others.
Windows 11 should automatically provide updates unless you pause the update for some reason-in this case, now is a good time to perform a manual check.
Microsoft seems to have resolved the startup problem fast enough, but Windows 11 is still not in the state where we recommend everyone to upgrade to it. For this reason, we recommend waiting until the first major update, which is expected to take place in the spring of 2022.
