I read something in the Anand Tech review about how Windows 7 scheduler isn't optimized for Bulldozer's modules. How significant would a tweak to the scheduler for Bulldozer's modules be in terms of performance?
"I also did some multithreaded tests to compare Windows 7 versus Windows 8. The task scheduler in the latter is more optimised for multi core CPUs. Yet my finding were not that shocking in my test suite. 1-4% difference was maximum spotted. Nothing that would give the Scorpius platform that required significant boost."
