The "gamer-centric"...

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
The "gamercentric" or "Enthusiast" version of Vista is going to cost a frikkin bundle over the other versions. What a gyp. I'm pissed.

I thought I heard a while back that there was a 10-15% decrease in performance? Might have been fixed then, not up to date on vista.

the beta versions were actually about 15% less efficient in games but the RC2 is not as bad and really is only a few frames here and there missing. a negligible amount unless you don't have a good computer but then you shouldn't be using vista anyways. most people with those amazing computers are getting crazy frame rates when your eye can only see 24 FPS so there's no reason to have 200 FPS. so to say the least most people won't have a problem with vista's "slowness' plus you have to realize that when vista comes out DX10 will come out also.

COMPLETELY false. The lowest FPS the eye can see without noticing the jerking is 25 FPS, however the eye can see MUCH more than that, waaay past 100 fps in fact!

TV's are 25 (or 29.97, depending on where you live!), but that doesnt mean thats all the eye can see!
