TPM 2.0, Secure Boot, and a supported CPU are required to install Windows 11, but what if another security feature causes problems?
“Virtualization based security“Herber performance
It has now been revealed by UL Benchmarks, the company behind the popular 3DMark software, that Microsoft’s Virtualization-based Security (VBS) is causing performance degradation.
The feature is enabled when you install Windows 11 from scratch, not if you upgrade from Windows 10, oddly enough.
In pre-release tests of Windows 11, a feature called Virtualization-Based Security (VBS) causes poor performance. VBS is enabled by default after a clean install of Windows 11, but not when you upgrade from Windows 10. This means that the same system may register differently depending on how Windows 11 is installed and whether or not VBS is enabled.
UL . Standards
PC Gamer noticed the following loss in performance after learning about the UL Benchmark results (tested with 22,000,194):
- Far Cry New Dawn: 5%
- Horizon Zero Dawn: 25 percent
- Metro displacement: 24 percent
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider: 28 Pro
- 3DMark Time Spy: 10 percent
UL Benchmarks will fix its software, but what about Microsoft?
UL Benchmarks says it will include a mechanism to discover VBS so that devices can be properly compared.
You can try the following at your own risk:
Disable VBS by adding the “EnableVirtualizationBasedSecurity” DWORD to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetControlDeviceGuard. Then set the value to 0. Reboot.
