Windows 11 appears to have finally caught up to Windows 10 – in one key area, at least – with reports suggesting it now performs almost as well as its predecessor at certain tasks.

To be honest, this is all a bit embarrassing for Microsoft. When Windows 11 was first introduced, to everyone’s surprise, Microsoft promised that the new operating system would be tuned for the new hardware and offer performance increases over Windows 10. While the Windows 11 announcement was surprising, the promise that the new OS would work better than the previous version was less – this is usually the case.
