Microsoft recently released an update to Windows 11, which contains a number of new features and functionality. Including the ability to enable the display of seconds on the clock in the tray. At the same time, which is very unexpected, the inclusion of this function, according to Microsoft itself, increases power consumption and, as a result, reduces the autonomy of mobile PCs. The authors of the Neowin portal decided to check if this is really the case. It turned out that this is indeed the case.
The experiment showed that the display of seconds reduces the autonomy of the test laptop by about 1.9%. This is a very minor difference, but the very fact that it exists is interesting. It is also worth noting that the testing format assumed the operation of a laptop without any load, that is, the PC simply stood with the sleep mode turned off and simply gradually discharged.
The experiment with Windows 10 showed an almost identical result, so it’s not about Windows 11 at all. The source does not say what are the reasons for this behavior of the OS.
