Microsoft fixes AMD processor problems with Windows 11

Microsoft has released a new update for Windows 11 that fixes some performance issues for AMD processors.

AMD and Microsoft found two issues with Windows 11 across Ryzen processors at launch, one of which is causing L3 cache latency to triple and slowing performance by up to 15 percent in some games.

The company is now working on a fix for this particular issue with Windows 11 Build 22000.282, which is available to all Windows 11 users as an optional update on Windows Update.

Although the recent Windows 11 update made these issues worse, the current patch should fix them from the L3 cache response time side.

The second outstanding issue affects AMD’s preferred core technology, which turns threads into the fastest core in the processor. Which can boost performance across Ryzen processors.

AMD says this second bug could affect performance on CPU-intensive tasks. AMD has released a new chipset driver for its processing, version

Microsoft releases a fix for Ryzen slowdowns

Even if your system is not affected by this specific error because you are using Windows 10 or a Ryzen CPU with fewer cores, the new driver has fixes for a few other Ryzen and Threadripper systems running either Windows 10 or Windows 11.

This new Windows 11 update also includes a great deal of fixes, including a fix for an issue that prevents the Start menu from opening and preventing you from seeing the updated taskbar after upgrading the operating system.

There are fixes for input delays for some Bluetooth keyboards and mice. And an issue that prevents the search window from appearing on a secondary screen. Besides an issue causing some apps to run slower than usual after upgrading to Windows 11.

And you can find full list for fixes that are part of this patch via the company’s website.

It’s surprising to see Windows 11 come with these issues, especially when Microsoft limited the amount of supported processors for this new operating system.

Bugs always occur with new OS versions. But such an obvious effect on processor performance had to be identified during months of public beta testing.
