Be careful AMD – Microsoft is downgrading your CPU’s performance on Windows 11 again

Bad news for Team Red: it appears high-end AMD Ryzen desktop processors – including flagship Ryzen 9 7950X – their performance is effectively limited by a feature in Windows 11.

The feature in question is the Windows 11 thread scheduler (sometimes called the thread director) – essentially a simple background program that dictates which cores in the processor should handle each task assigned to the system. Normally this should improve performance, but the thread scheduler seems to have issues with the dual CCD setup on the Ryzen 9 7950X and 7900X.
