Windows 11 benchmark reveals security feature can affect performance

Considering Windows has been ridiculed for decades because of its weak security, it's no surprise that Microsoft is making security a critical factor in Windows 11. It has even made certain hardware-based security features a minimum requirement for upgrading to the next big Windows release.
