New Windows 11 Beta build fixes AMD cache latency issue

Microsoft, in today’s blog, announced the fix of the cache issue with AMD Ryzen processors.

This issue increased L3 cache latency by 6 times, decreasing performance in certain apps by up to 7%. It was reported seeing a 15% performance drop in some esports games.

It was announced that they:

“fixed an L3 caching issue that might affect performance in some applications on devices that have AMD Ryzen processors after upgrading to Windows 11 (original release).”

This was part of the 22000.282 build recently released to their Beta and Release Preview Channels.

With Windows 11 being a brand new release, bugs and issues like these are to be expected.

Along with this fix, the build counts with many more smaller issue fixes. These including fixes to the Start Menu, power management, system and devices not responding, among others.

AMD, on their own site, recognized this issue and promised the same update. We’ll see in the following weeks, the result of this update.
