[HWI] Gaming in Windows 8 vs Windows 7: what's the difference in performance? - Page 3

post #21 of 185
There's something wrong...
Batman - AC - 1920x1080 - Normal 128.0 fps 145.0 fps 13.28%
Batman - AC - 1920x1080 - Highest + 4xAA 90.0 fps 106.0 fps 17.78%
Batman - AC - 5760x1080 - Normal 57.0 fps 88.0 fps 54.39%
Batman - AC - 5760x1080 - Highest + 4x AA 36.0 fps 43.0 fps 19.44%

Not that I'll install win8 on my PC, but this number is too damn high. This looks more like typo.

What isn't taken into account in all of this is any kind of margin for error. The fact that the average of all these tests is a 1.29% difference shows that it's a complete wash. It might as well be 0% as far as showing objectively which is better for gaming goes.

I'd blame that on your ram. thumb.gif Windows 8 seems to have a better ram manager, when I had windows 8 I was getting random crashes on apps.

This was already proven in another review by TechPowerUp that it was both the same.

Contribute that to 12.11 not Windows 8; I have seen no increase in performance.

Is gaming really the only thing you all do with a computer? :0 that cant possibly be your only reason for not upgrading.

Windows 8 is in its infancy, and has plenty of time to mature and receive better first and third party support. Windows 7 on the other hand is just going to pretty much stay where it is.

Windows 7 and Vista do not belong in the same sentance ever especially when it comes to performance... Battery? Sleep time? We are talking desktop performance here I don't think they have laptops in mind especially while presenting flagship ATI/NVIDIA cards. Windows 8 has its flaws but it certainly does not follow the previous trend of Microsoft where they would release one OS one year and the successor of that would suck really hard. Calling tests moronic is like calling science moronic. There has to be testing especially in the tech field.... but you probably knew that already I would assume. rolleyes.gif

You're a bit late to the party. Thread's already been cleaned up.

You hold science and testing in such regard, but can't stomach a valid claim about Windows 7 and Vista? Oh, the irony.

Hate to break it to you man, but 7 was essentially Vista SP3.

Right but the difference between the two was substantial especially when it came to gaming performance. Sure they had relatively the same UI but that does not really make it SP3. Windows looks and feels almost the same as Windows 7 (minus all of the tile crap and the start button) but are we really calling it Windows 7 SP3?
