Early benchmarks of Windows 11 Insider Preview vs. Windows 10

Read Time:2 Minute, 43 Second

On a budget laptop and a gaming laptop, I installed Windows 11. This is how it went down.

The arrival of Windows 11 raises a slew of questions. For the time being, the most pressing question is: Will installing the Windows 11 beta wreak havoc on my system?

The response so far has been no, after installing the latest Insider Preview on many laptops. What about performance, though? Will Windows 11 make my laptop faster because it is better optimized? Or will it be slower because we’re installing a new operating system on old hardware?

At the very least, the final release candidate of Windows 11 will have to wait for an official response. Instead, most individuals have an Insider Preview from Microsoft’s Windows Insider dev channel, which is far from finished and riddled with flaws (like the ones listed here).

If you want to give it a shot, you can find instructions for downloading the current Windows 11 beta here. As I mentioned in the video, I always advise against installing any OS beta on a mission-critical laptop (i.e., your only laptop). But you may do whatever you want; I’m not the laptop cop.

On a recent budget laptop, the Microsoft Surface Laptop Go, and an older high-end gaming laptop, the Alienware Area-51m, I installed the current Windows 11 Insider Preview. For these, benchmark test scores on Windows 10 and 11 were compared. Keeping in mind that comparing ordinary Windows 10 to an early, flawed Windows 11 build isn’t a perfect match, the results are listed below. This is just a glimpse of some of my first head-to-head results, and it’s far from conclusive.

Windows 10 vs Windows 11 Dev Beta

Alienware Area-51m [3.6GHz Intel Core i9-9900K; 32GB DDR4 SDRAM; 8GB Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080; (2) 512GB SSD RAID 0 + 1TB HDD]GeekBench 4Cinebench R153D Mark Port Royale
Windows 103027119945769
Windows 11 (Dev Beta 22000.51)2944418106108
[For all tests: Higher scores are better]   
Microsoft Surface Laptop Go  [1.0GHz Intel Core i5-1035G1; 8GB LPDDR4; Intel UHD Graphics; 256GB SSD]GeekBench 5 (multicore)Cinebench R20 
Windows 1029831034 
Windows 11 (Dev Beta 22000.51)33991096 

Overall, I can fairly state that using Windows 11 on these computers was very similar to using Windows 10 in both circumstances. I used the latest versions of some of our benchmark tests in both Windows 10 and 11 for the Surface Laptop Go, which costs roughly $700. I used the test versions of the Alienware Area-51m from when I first tested the system in 2019. The most striking finding was that Windows 11, even in its beta condition, outperformed newer versions of benchmarks (and a little worse in the older versions).

I did come into a few Windows 11 issues, including one where the Start Menu search function refuses to take keyboard input. (Opening a Run box with Wn+R and then closing it may help.)

We’ll keep an eye on the progress of Windows 11 and MacOS Monterey, both of which are expected to be available to the general public by the end of 2021.
