Microsoft 'will be enabling VBS on most new PCs over this next year' and that can tank PC gaming performance by around 25%.
I'm no PC gaming expert, but maybe game drivers haven't being released for Windows 11 yet.
It's literally in the article, we don't need your uneducated guesses. VBS is enabled on pre-builts. It is essentially virtualization for programs to prevent malware and the like. Virtualization always has a performance hit, but not usually this bad. Tests also show that power usage is inline with the performance drop. Hopefully MS can fix this, at least to some degree.
For super duper security.
I understand its a new security system for malware etc but that's a significant drop. Best wait and test yourselfs first as 25% seems unreasonable
Yeh it's a bonehead move to jump to Windows 11 as soon as its rolled out. Definitely want to wait until it's past it's growing pains. No rush!
Crazy how big of a resource hog security processes can be. Sounds like most will just want to disable the VBS if they buy one of those systems
Windows 11 just wants to track to keep tabs on you, the security chip requirement to translate encryption and all the security background security processes it’s 1984 software 2.0
This won't look good on Microsoft part. Hopefully they can get it fixed
You can just disable VBS & SVM in your BIOS. This is for Ryzen CPUs but it should also work with Intel: https://howtodoninja.com/ho... Also go into your services and find anything with Hyper-V and just set them all to disabled.
"Just" disable them in the BIOS, I'm sure all those users who play games on PC will know that the shitty fps they're getting is due to a BIOS setting that they've probably never heard of, in a system settings location they probably don't know how to get to, and is an issue they probably don't know how to google. Not everyone is a power user, or even a hobbyist who reads things like this. Many people just click install and then open the game.
That's why I provided that link maybe it will help some people 😁 I always thought at least most would know about their BIOS and hardware or at least take an interest, in the PC you just bought. People who build their own I'm pretty sure they would know about this.
None issue for those who self build or know what they're doing.
Exactly, very easy to disable VBS and also SVM in the bios and also Hyper-V all entries in windows services 😁
This is why I stick to consoles. May not get the cutting edge of graphical performance but you put in the disc and play.
Why the disagrees. It's a fact. You don't mess with drivers or OS issues. Sure there are patches but that's it.
Changing the BIOS is actually very, very simple. I could never go back to purely console gaming. It may be simple, but you're stuck with whatever the devs decide to drop on your console of choice. If it's buggy, you're at their whim, whereas the PC community can at least produce and distribute fan patches. I think people overestimate how complicated PC gaming is. Once you have your thing up and running, you won't typically run into issues with the games, themselves. I've been on PC since windows 7, own over a thousand games (not that I've played them all) and have only had issues with a small handful.
I'm sitting with an aorus 7 gaming laptop that has a i7 and Nvidia GeForce GTX. Thought OK it a mid tier gaming spec let me try running KOTOR as I've never played it. Launched the game and it won't play on full screen. Went on a few forums but the fix was too troublesome. It just my preference... consoles are an out of the box accessible way for me to play.
So you stick to consoles just because you don't know or refuse to know how to change a simple setting in the BIOS, something that literally takes seconds. It's scary that people like you are allowed to operate vehicles.
I actually sell vehicles for a living. And you right I refuse to bother with messing with settings and downloading drivers to play a game. That's why I can genuinely can say that won't be playing game pass games on a PC, I use mine for word and downloads. Imagine spending all that money only to struggle looking for a setting just to get a game to launch. That's why consoles get games first, not everybody is willing to spend money on a rig that requires constant upgrades to play the latest games. Sorry if I hurt your silicone feelings
why would you upgrade right after release? Everyone knows every other windows suck.
Not sure if it's my imagination but Deathloop looks and runs better since I installed Window 11. CPU and GPU are not getting as hot either.Happy with it so far.
Hobble ! Now thats a word !
put some Denuvo on the top
The only time it was ever a good idea to upgrade an OS at launch was when I left Vista for Windows 7. I do not see any reason to swap out 10 until this is fixed.
I miss 7. Don't like the layout of 10, even though it's a good OS in general.
@Krog011 10 years ago it was not so hard. SATA 3 SSDs where all the rage and pretty expensive, but overall building a PC then was at least to me very easy. Now if you remember going back even further 20yrs+ , remember IDE harddrives and CD/DVD burners where you had to set the jumper to master and slave? 😀 Good times. I'm sure some here won't know about that.
