Windows 11 running on the Raspberry Pi 4 is quite an achievement considering the specifications of a Raspberry Pi 4 fall well below the recommended requirements for Microsoft’s latest OS. Running Windows on the Raspberry Pi is thanks to a dedicated community of developers, led by Amir Dahan, who work at a breakneck speed to create new images and updates ready for the Raspberry Pi.
At the stock speed of 1.5 GHz, Windows 11 on the Pi 4 is a pleasant experience. Sure there are a few stutters and pauses, but we can mitigate these by using an SSD as our boot drive. But what if we want to squeeze every last drop of performance from Windows 11? For that, we need to overclock our Raspberry Pi 4, but not via the BIOS, rather we will use the Windows on Raspberry Control Panel, created by Dahan. This easy to use tool automates many of the tweaks necessary to safely overclock a Raspberry Pi 4.
