Surprisingly, Windows 11 runs smoothly on the Raspberry Pi 4, even in the operating system's development stage. Additionally, the Raspberry Pi 4 has a Broadcom BCM2711, an SoC with four ARM Cortex-A72 cores that can reach 1.5 GHz. The BCM2711 also has 1 MB of L2 cache and has been demonstrated running on 8 GB of RAM. Theoretically, Windows 11 could run on a Raspberry Pi 4 with 2 GB or 4 GB of RAM, although we would expect to see a performance drop off.
Apparently, Windows 11 runs better on the SBC than Windows 10 does, too. We should stress that this is the ARM64 version of Microsoft's latest OS, which the company has distributed to devices like the Surface Pro X.
