Microsoft has released a new update for Windows 10 called the “Windows 10 November 2018 Update Release 2.” The update includes bug fixes and improvements that AMD recommends. The recommended updates require less space because they are compressed to save on storage, but this comes at the cost of performance which some users may not be willing to deal with.
The “windows update taking forever” is an optional update that has been released by Microsoft. AMD users are the most affected by this issue, and it can be fixed with a quick registry edit.
Microsoft published an optional cumulative update (preview updates are also known as monthly C-updates) for Windows 11 stable PCs today. The Microsoft Update Catalog has version 22000.282 available for download through Windows Update or manual installation.
Although getting cumulative update previews is typically not a good idea, some users may wish to obtain today’s release because of the many improvements and fixes it contains. If you have an AMD-based PC running Windows 11, we also suggest installing 22000.282. The update includes a remedy for excessive L3 cache delays, which are causing many users to experience performance issues. Also, AMD issued a new chipset driver today that includes fixes for the CPPC problem, so be sure to get that as well.
