So only a 264 point difference between XP Pro x64 and Vista.. not much of a difference there, I'm going to run PCMark05 on both and see what that says. I'll post those results tommorrow.
No surprises there. And actually with SP1 for Vista you'd see a performance gain there as well. Too bad this isn't enough for all the Naysayers out there regarding Vista and gaming. The result differences are a moot point anymore as the driver's for Vista have finally matured enough to narrow the gap up.
People seem to not realize that the differences were never anything to do with the OS but simply the crap drivers everyone was putting out. Now that were nearly 18months into it and SP1 is right around the corner for everyone people will hopefully finally start to see that Vista's not as bad as they thought.
I've been running Vista SP1 final for a few weeks now on both my machines (I work at a retailer so I was able to get it through my OEM partner account) and I couldn't be happier with it.
