Intel is a good pick for Windows 11. It is well optimized for Windows 11, but it makes no difference which one you choose for the lightweight Windows 11 operating system; it all depends on your preferences and user base.

Good to Know. Kept comparing them to no end but I guess they don't have a noticeable difference.

No, you're wrong! AMD is a better choice as most software and games nowadays are programmed to use all cores in the processors. AMD has a better Multi-Core performance than intel, plus AMD is significantly cheaper than intel.
