SuperPi 32M results are better in which OS: Windows XP or Windows 7?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just wondering, I've got a spare HDD I can throw XP on without harming the fragile setup of my main Windows 7 OS (what with numerous SSD optimizations that took days to finalize)

Better results, no difference, or worse? (I've been hearing this differently from many people)

I think it is xp. I have been doing a few superpi runs for ocn on hwbot and ftw420 and noguru both recommended running it on a stripped os, iirc both did say the superpi in xp does slightly better. Im currently waiting to installing tinyxp (which was kindly shared by noguru) hopefully in the next couple of weeks. If ain't to late I'll let you know how I get on.

Hope that helps

Seems for me so far XP Home x86 is .07sec quicker than 7 Pro x64 basically both having the same programs on the OS in SuperPI Mod v1.5 [1M]. On a stripped OS it probably is even greater.

FWIW my XP install is on an old garbage Maxtor 250gb sata 1.5gb/s drive and 7 is on a WD Black 1TB 3.0gb/s drive.
