Your Windows 11 Laptop Might Be About to Get Faster – But Don’t Celebrate Yet

Good news! A new Windows 11 update could be about to speed up your laptop or PC. Bad news! It is actually fixing an issue that was slowing down your device.

AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs Could Be a Big Generational Leap to Boost Speed

Let’s start with the mobile CPU. While this is a relatively affordable OnePlus model, starting at just $649 / £629, the 6.7-inch device is powered by Qualcomm’s latest: the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, which is reportedly 10% faster and 30% more energy efficient than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
