Microsoft incorporated core insulation into Windows 11 by default, though it's ruining productivity

Today Microsoft has started to distribute Windows 11, the first major upgrade to its current operating system. It will bring many interesting innovations, one of which will be the default core isolation function and memory integrity, designed to counter harmful software and various types of attacks by isolating the OS processes and the device itself.

According to available data, this function reduces the overall performance of the device. At the time of the launch of Windows 11 last October, the core isolation function was disabled by default. It is clear that Microsoft has now decided to improve the safety of users, despite the fact that the activation of the function reduces the performance of the device, especially in games. The company has also noted that the developers have been able to partially reduce the impact of the isolation of the kernel on productivity.

According to available data, the core insulation will be incorporated by default on new PCs with Windows 11. On active devices where users install Windows 11 upgrades, the function will not automatically be activated. Remember, for correct core insulation operation, the TPM 2.0 module is required, as well as the activation of some additional security functions. The core insulation function is also present in Windows 10, but it is disabled by default.
