Windows 11 Vs Windows 10 (Explained):
Now I will give a detailed performance and speed comparison of Windows 11 and Windows 10, and this will clear your doubts about the new Windows 11, also you will be able to make a choice between both Windows OS.
Windows 10 is after Windows 11 by Windows Boating time because by our test Windows 10 loaded 1 second before Windows 11.
Windows 11 takes 41.5 GB of storage and the other hand, and Windows 10 takes 40 GB of total storage which is less than the storage taken by Windows 11 so here also Windows 10 Wins.
Windows 11 needs at least 4 GB of RAM for its files and processes and on the other hand Windows 10 only takes up to 2.5 GB of RAM which is very less than the RAM taken by Windows 11 so here Windows 10 wins again.
We made this test on a PC with 8 GB of RAM so if you are having 8 GB of RAM in your laptop or PC then your Windows 10 will open up to 30 and more tabs easily without lagging, but on the other hand if you are using Windows 11 then you can have up to 22 Tabs open at a time which is very less as compared to Windows 10, so a clear win again for Windows 10.
If you are a laptop user then I will simply say that Windows 11 takes a lot of power as compared to Windows 10 so if your laptop battery lasts up to 2 hours and 30 minutes on Windows 10 then by installing Windows 11 it can drop to 2 Hours and 20 minutes because this is the average Power usage difference between both Windows.
Application Opening Time:
I have tested many games and different video editing applications and utility applications on both Windows 10 and Windows 11 and every time Windows 10 opened the application a second or two before Windows 11, so again Windows 10 is the winner.
Website Loading Time:
Here the results are totally different because for every website we opened with both Windows Windows 11 opened a half second before Windows 10 so the clear winner was Windows 11.
Geek Bench Single Core:
The results for Geek Bench every time went the same and the winner was Windows 11 all the time by just defeating Windows 10 by one point every time. This means that at benchmarks and powerful performance Windows 11 is a little better than Windows 10 but Speed-wise windows 10 is better.
At graphics dependant benchmarks also Windows 11 wins each of the time and defeats Windows 10 by 1 point only.
Internet Speed Test:
Windows 10 and Windows 11 were one of the toughest competitors but here in this Internet Speed test Windows 11 beats Windows 10 so easily, our Tests Windows 10 got 60mbps download speed whereas the other hand, Windows 11 got upto 66mbps speed, and upload speed was 55 Mbps for windows and 50 Mbps for windows, so here the winner is not very clear because both wins and loses at the same test.
Now the results are here, and I will simply say that you should not upgrade to Windows 11 by compromising so many speed advantages for a little bit or unnoticeable performance benchmarks points, also the usability of Windows 10 is better than Windows 11 and right now Windows 11 is not very stable and fast so maybe in future when Microsoft gives a good update about Windows 11 then we can think about upgrading to Windows 11.
