Current CPUs are not slowed down

The elephant in the room is obviously Intel's 7th generation Kaby Lake CPUs, which are basically no more slowed down than an 8th generation Kaby Lake R Lake laptop. If the 8th generation Kaby Lake R can run Windows 11 and VBS, why not the 7th generation Kaby Lake chips? We really don't understand this, but we know Microsoft pointed out that again, driver support and system stability are important, not just performance.


But if you're using a 6th generation or older laptop, you probably don't want to run Windows 11 and all of its security features anyway. Using a 6th generation laptop or older, you probably don't want to run Windows 11 and all of its security features anyway.

Windows 11 free: Buy Win10 Pro for only 49.99 euros and upgrade to Windows 11 for free

Microsoft is saying goodbye to backward compatibility with Windows 11 in order - according to its own statement - to increase the stability, security and performance of the new operating system. However, the almost mandatory security function Trusted Platform Module (TPM) costs a comparatively high amount of computing power. The tests of our sister publication PCWorld show one of the reasons Microsoft doesn't want to allow Windows 11 to run on older PCs.

Since the colleagues do not have a final code for Windows 11, they have activated the Windows 11 function "Virtualization Based Security", which is always activated, in Windows 10. You can do this yourself on many Windows 10 PCs by clicking the Windows button, entering device security and clicking the "Core Isolation" option (if your hardware supports it). From there, you can enable memory integrity, which enables or disables VBS. Drivers that support VBS must be installed on the computer and hardware virtualization of the CPU must be activated in the BIOS. When you turn on memory integrity, Windows checks driver compliance and tells you which drivers are preventing you from turning on.
