Tiny 11 vs Windows 11: Which Is Faster?

Today, we’re taking a look at the differences between using Windows 11 and Tiny 11. Basically, it’s a stripped-down version of Windows 11, removing all unnecessary software. Now, will it have an impact besides the storage occupied? That’s what we’re going to check out.

For these tests, I’m using the billing Series 5 with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H, 16 GB of RAM, and 512 GB of storage. Starting with the storage, this is one of the significant differences between Windows 11 and Tiny 11. While Windows 11 uses 33 gigabytes, Tiny 11 only uses 24 GB on installation. When we are at idle, the normal Windows 11 version uses 3.9 GB of RAM, while Tiny 11 only uses 3.3 GB of RAM. These results are a great indicator that Tiny 11 is ideal for machines limited in terms of resources.

Now, taking a look at some temperatures, I conducted two tests: one with OBS recording and one without. The results were very similar, with a difference of 10 degrees when using OBS. We recorded roughly 57 degrees with OBS and 47 without OBS on both machines.

Moving to the first benchmark, Geekbench, the temperature results were as follows: on Windows 11, a maximum of 91 degrees, while on Tiny 11, only 88. In terms of RAM, Windows 11 peaked at 6.5 GB, while Tiny 11 peaked at 5 GB during Geekbench 6. The final Geekbench results were on Windows 11, 1727 in single-core score and 7007 in multi-core score. On Tiny 11, we achieved 1900 in single-core score and 7500 in multi-core score, showing a significant difference in performance.

The next test was Cinebench, and the temperatures while running the benchmark were 90 degrees Celsius on Windows 11 and 88 degrees Celsius on Tiny 11. RAM usage peaked at 7.6 GB on Windows 11 and 6.4 GB on Tiny 11. The final Cinebench results on Windows 11 were 1402 in single-core score and 9126 in multi-core score, while on Tiny 11, we got 1416 in single-core score and 9340 in multi-core score.

In terms of graphics using Unigine Superposition, on Windows 11, we got 2731, while on Tiny 11, it was 2699. This was the only notable difference between the two versions.

In conclusion, Tiny 11 has fewer installed resources and runs fewer background processes, allowing the machine to take full advantage of its resources. While this might not be noticeable on high-end machines like the billing Series 5, it can make a significant difference on computers with limited RAM and storage.
