Microsoft continues to emphasize that Windows 11 system requirements are absolutely necessary, and the entire TPM 2.0 schtick is essential to the safety of you, your PC, and the entire world.Well, I did the last point, but Big M insisted on his position and posted another video (via Graphics card) Supports its decision to exclude a lot of hardware for Windows 10.
The latest argument is that due to the new system requirements, you will see fewer blue screens of death — or possibly black screens of death — because of the new system requirements, citing “99.8% crash-free experience” [Windows 11] Preview. “
Look, there are still some of us at some point in the future, perhaps in the distant future, Microsoft will turn around and say,’You know, what? We don’t mind what processor you use on Windows 11, but this is our goal for now. You need a modern CPU for Windows 11 to ensure safety and reliability.
Maybe there is a little performance.
“Therefore, the requirements for Intel’s 8th generation and AMD Ryzen 2000 series and newer chipsets really help improve performance,” Microsoft vice president Steve Dispensa said in a recent video. “But the main reason here is actually the balance of safety and performance. Safety is at the core of these requirements.”
He did point out how Windows 11 prioritizes differences in applications running in the foreground window. Since the system is running at 90% CPU load, due to these priorities, you can still get a responsive experience when opening and using foreground applications.
“Behind the scenes, we have done a lot of work in memory management to support the application windows we run in the foreground so that they give priority to using more CPU and other system resources.”
He also suggested that the sleep tab of the Edge browser can help reduce memory requirements by an average of 32% and CPU usage by an average of 37%. It is worth pointing out that these numbers are purely related to the browser experience and related to opening and closing the sleep tab, rather than a measure of the performance difference provided by Windows 11 itself.
However, although the system requirements and their focus on TPM 2.0 security compatibility is not an enticing reason to abandon a slightly older CPU, having an operating system that crashes only 0.2% of the time may be more attractive to potential users.
“We are also concerned about reliability,” he continued. “So the supported CPU uses the new Windows DCH driver and is supported by our OEM and our chip partners… Now with these new chips and driver models, we now see 99.8% in the preview Crash-free experience.”
Still, it just means messaging for the same thing: these are Windows 11 system requirements, and you will have to accept it. At least for now, although Microsoft continues to confuse us all.
