Tests have shown: Windows 11 is finally catching up with Windows 10 in performance

Apparently, Microsoft is close to fulfilling its promise that the new Windows 11 operating system will work better than the previous version.

Tests have shown: Windows 11 is finally catching up with Windows 10 in performance

When Windows 11 became available, tests showed that Windows 10 actually delivered better performance on the same hardware for certain tasks, especially video editing and rendering. Now, Puget Systems, an American computer assembly company well known for its system tests, has updated its Windows 11 study.

With new hardware such as 12th generation Intel processors that were designed with Windows 11 features in mind, experts hoped that Windows 11 would gain a performance advantage over the seven-year-old Windows 10. However, the miracle did not happen.

Running the test on systems with Intel Core i9-12900K, AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, AMD Threadripper Pro 5975WX, and AMD Threadripper Pro 5995WX processors, Puget Systems found that Windows 10 continues to lead performance in Premiere Pro.

However, in other tests the gap narrowed, with Windows 11 taking the lead on some tasks, such as CUDA’s V-Ray mode.

Puget Systems notes that the two operating systems are now fairly close in performance. Both operating systems have their advantages in certain tests.

Compared to the first results of Windows 11, this is a big step forward. However, Windows 11 still doesn’t outperform the old OS in many tests.

The company of the former owner of Twitter launched Bitkey

The Block company of entrepreneur Jack Dorsey, co-founder and former head of the social network Twitter (now X), announced the launch of a hardware crypto wallet called Bitkey for storing Bitcoin. Bitkey is shaped like a black hexagon and is complemented by a mobile app and a set of tools for recovering private keys in case you lose your wallet, smartphone, or both devices. According to the creators, Bitcoin is a safe and easy way for people with varying levels of Bitcoin experience to take control of their finances, gain peace of mind and independence from any one organization.

The company of the former owner of Twitter launched Bitkey - a hardware wallet for bitcoins

Bitkey works based on a 2 of 3 multi-signature system: the client is given two keys – one of them is in the mobile application, and the second is stored offline in the hardware device. Through the application, you can make Bitcoin transactions from your smartphone, track your balance and manage security settings. The hardware key serves two main purposes: an additional layer of security for co-signing money transfers (based on the limit set by the client) and data recovery if the phone is lost.

The third key resides on the Bitkey server and is used for only two purposes: moving bitcoins for smartphone-only transactions (no hardware device) and recovering the wallet in case you lose your phone, hardware device, or both. Since Bitkey only has access to one key, and not two or three at once, an organization cannot access a client’s funds without the client’s knowledge. Bitkey is currently available for pre-order in 95 countries for $150, with deliveries expected to start in early 2024.

In the new test version of Windows 11, the Dev and Canary channels now display the number of characters at the bottom of the Notepad window, much like counting the number of words in a document in Microsoft Word.

The Microsoft Windows Insider testing program team explained in a blog post:

When text is selected, the status bar displays the character count for both the selected text and the entire document. If no text is selected, the character count for the entire document is displayed, so you always have a clear idea of ​​the length of the document.

This is the latest addition in a line of changes to Notepad in 2023: the app recently added a new autosave option that lets you close a document without being confronted with a window prompting you to save every time. Microsoft has also added tabs and dark mode to Notepad.
