AMD's faultIt's AMD's software at fault because it wasn't updated to work correctly with Windows 11. ALL vendors have to check their drivers for a new OS launch. Blaming MS for AMD not fixing this or announcing it after the launch is silly.
but "no one really knows" is kind of moving the goalposts considering how quickly the first statement above put the blame solely on AMD as if they were some outsider that refused to work on the issue. Almost a Red Herring.Maybe if you actually followed the conversation and read everything wrote and not just one of the post, you would have noticed I've said multiple times ""No one really knows how things transpired."
But people want to keep only blaming MS and even AMD has acknowledge their driver needs to be updated. That's all, nothing more, nothing less. The blind loyalty is just weird around here. It is a lot like P&N in that way.
I've also said the same thing about the fix. This will be fixed in no time and I bet no one would have noticed if it weren't for benchmark tools. For most software, it's a 3-5% loss for the scheduler issue. That's nothing. I'm not sure what the loss is for UEFI. Don't think I've seen anyone tell that.
This is Microsoft's release. It is solely on them to do the groundwork and allow the appropriate amount of time to get fixes out. If parties are unable to make that fix in a given amount of time and they decide to release anyways, that's on them. Furthermore if they worked hand and hand with intel to put in a critical feature for their product and that feature breaks the standard model that has existed for some time, that's on them.
Since we're in no one really knows land: This feature looks like it was made to allow Big/Little to work more efficiently. It also looks like the feature was pushed in at the last moment forcing rushed fixes into the pipeline.
As someone who has worked on rushed releases, I can tell you a small performance hit that will be fixed later is not a deal breaker when it comes to getting the release out. A crash on the other hand is.
