From what I can tell Win 11 Pro does well for us. I've been using it for months professionally and have had zero issues caused by Windows.

Honestly I would take 'things you read' about Ryzen and performance problems with a huge grain of salt if the comments are very general. There will probably be specific cases where specific combinations are problematic, but the same is true for Intel.

I've been running a new computer with a 5900X and Win 11 Pro and it's been working great.

If you have any specific questions that I can check for you then ask away and hopefully I can answer.

1. Do I understand correctly that since this is only an enablement package away, it's completely safe to update without things going sour as it is sometimes the case if you don't do a fresh install?

2. Should I expect the same performance/DPC Latency etc.? Because when it comes to DPC Latency, in my experience, I've found out 20H2 substantially worse than 1909.

1, you can expect maybe a couple drivers that might need to be reinstalled and reconfigured, depending on your system devices. Possibly a ilok hiccup.

2. hard to say, but should be fine. I've never seen a case for DPC latency actually effecting any performance on the system. It's more of a working/not working thing in my experience.
