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

Published

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.

It turned out that in Android 13, the search giant fixed a huge number of bugs that existed in Pixel smartphones. More specifically, the list includes 151 issues that Google has fixed in the update.

In particular, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro have a much better in-display fingerprint scanner, the slowness of which many have complained about. We also fixed the issue with double-tap to wake up the screen, Always-On Display, auto-brightness, auto-rotate the screen, and more.

iOS has a VPN issue that Apple is aware of but won’t fix

iOS has a VPN issue that Apple is aware of

Network security specialist Michael Horowitz reported problems with VPN on iOS. As it turns out, the operating system does not completely pass network traffic through the virtual private network, which is a potential security issue. The manufacturer has known about this for years, but does nothing.

iOS has a VPN issue that Apple is aware of but won't fix

According to the expert, it seems that everything is working, because the third-party VPN provides a new IP address, DNS servers and a tunnel for traffic. However, sessions and connections established before the VPN is enabled do not switch to the encrypted channel, but function in parallel with it.

The problem is confirmed by a report from May 2020, when specialists discovered the same situation. As evidence, Horowitz cited a screenshot where an iPad connected to a VPN transmits data to both its main VPN provider (37.19.214.1) and Apple Push (17.57.144.12). Thus, there is a potential leak that will reveal the user’s real network address, which can lead to problems. Horowitz tested the system with several types of VPNs, including WireGuard, but the problem remained there.

According to Swiss-based Proton, this problem occurred at least in iOS 13.3.1 and remained in newer versions of the system. In theory, connecting through a VPN should close existing connections, but this does not happen.

Later it became known that Apple added a Kill Switch feature to block existing connections, but this feature does not seem to work or only partially works. According to the source, the problem is relevant for those users who live in conditions of total surveillance.

By the way, Proton offered a solution – to manually close all connections before connecting to the VPN, using the “flight mode”. However, it is unlikely that many users do this. But Horowitz has not yet named any specific solution to the problem.
