Windows 11's first update patch fix for AMD PCs and laptops made it worst than before


So last week, there were numerous reports that Windows 11 is causing some performance issues on AMD PCs and laptops. Although both Microsoft and AMD have worked together to resolve it, it seems that the latest update didn't really help much but made it worst than before.

The Windows 11 patch that went live recently was experimented with and reported by According to the site, they did another test to see if the issue was fixed or not but that's not the case. They used a Ryzen 7 2700X "Pinnacle Ridge" processor that uses an L3 cache latency of 10 ns but turned into a nightmare with up to 31.9 ns latency after the patch update. Yikes.

Bugs happen all the time on new software updates but this seems to be a major blooper from Microsoft's side. On the other hand, AMD is very much aware of this and will rollout two patches this month. The first one would be for Preferred Cores (UEFI-CPPC2) bug on 21 October and the L3 cache latency bug is scheduled for 19 October 2021.

If you're using an AMD-powered PC or laptop, you should hold off the Windows 11 update until further notice. Anyway, the update patches are in the works as we speak so just be patient.
