    The Windows Core Isolation - Memory Integrity option is enabled now.
    No discernible performance hit with PyTorch (CUDA) running CNN's!

    have you solved the Intel GPU driver issue? I think my best friend IRL has the same problem with hit laptop, the GIGABYTE G5 KC-5ES1130SD.

    I did not try. My focus was upgrading, testing all apps, improving security, and returning to ML tests.
    Usually, the laptop is silent under regular office or programming use.
    Only when running heavy ML tests that I hear the cooler working.

    The Windows 11 Pro upgrade was automatic and smooth.
    My subjective perception is that it is a solid OS, marginally faster than Win 10.
    My daughter's L340 laptop also had an OS upgrade.

    it's a family thing then, preferring laptops. I also prefer laptops over desktop PCs, but maybe that's just me. Most of the people I know who have a PC usually prefer desktop computers. They have some advantages, sure, but the disadvantages don't make up for them and how complete and useful a laptop package can be.

    Nowadays a 15" fast laptop is very good for an all-purpose computer (streaming, play, study, work).
    You get used to the flexibility.

    Have you tried running DirectML via WSL. This is what I do on my main machines (laptop i7 2060 and desktop 5900x and 6900XT) both running Win 11.

    No, I haven't.
    I use Anaconda with JupyterLab for small tests and Spyder for more robust tests.
    Today more concentrated on testing some non-conventional CNN.
    Think to combine it with EMs and Reinforcement Learning.

    Finally found the new BIOS.
    I hope they will have more care about security in the future...
