I am running Windows 10 1909 that I only use for video encoding/transcoding. I don't use Cortana, Edge or any other features in Win 10 and I use Firefox and Chrome as my browsers. I have the Threadripper 1950X overclocked to 4.0Ghz. Is there any compelling reason to upgrade? If so, I would format the drive and do a clean install to the new OS. I will upgrade if there are any new features that I might appreciate or if it will improve performance but I do not want any kind of degradation in my current performance.

Yes, you should. The newer versions bring along security updates, etc.
I've seen ZERO performance degradation from all the successive Win 10 versions.

How have you prevented it from doing this upgrade on its own?


You don't need a fresh install, unless you want to.

Call me old fashioned but anytime in the past when a new Windows OS comes out I do a clean install to ensure fast, reliable performance. Maybe it's not necessary? I go into settings and disable automatic updates of the OS. I get notifications when new updates are available and I install the updates when I choose to but I don't let Windows do anything on it's own.

Its not really "new OS".
Not like 7 -> 8 -> 10. Those DO need a fresh install.

These semiannual things are feature updates, on the same Win 10. Some with more change than others, but the same base OS.
