**VISTA** runs faster on my computer than XP did???

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey, I was just wondering why Vista would run faster on my computer than XP pro would? I just installed Vista Ultimate and it seems a lot faster than a fresh install of XP pro.

Its designed to "feel" fast.

If you benchmarked it would say otherwise

Vista is better adapted for utilizing a multiple-thread environment. Remember, XP was written before the mainstream advent of dual-cores.

Though, in gaming XP always will come out ahead, the Vista UI (Aero) is rendered 3D and taxes the video card.

Gaming on Vista = Less performance. I have seen a drop of 10FPS in BF 2142. No big deal, because I got a solid 70fps with "high" in-gaming settings, now I get a solid 60ish. Well, with people/guns/explosions going on, when I'm walking around in the middle of nowhere I get 100fps. Also, PB updates were needed to get all my games working correctly.

Desktop stuff in Vista = Great, fast, and generally awesome so far.

Man they did a good job of making it "feel" faster! It seems about 15-20% faster when opening apps.
