As we approach the official announcement, we learn more and more details about the improvements that Windows 11 will bring, including new optimizations for CPU, memory, and storage, enabling faster performance compared to Windows 10.
In the latest video release, a Microsoft official takes us through some of the improvements that come with Windows 11. One of them is "foreground prioritization," and this feature allows services that are not in use to pause, which will reduce memory consumption by up to 32% and CPU usage by up to 37 percent. This will be of great benefit to laptops, as they will allow for longer battery life.
Through a refreshed user interface, Microsoft has also implemented a new design called Mica. It can be seen in the file explorer, settings, and almost all inbox applications. Mica will be in charge of coloring the background of the application depending on the desktop background, and it is pointed out that it is faster than Fluent Design, which has a Windows 10 UI.
Combined with additional improvements that are not visible, these features should result in an overall better response experience for Windows.
