32BIT v 64BIT for benching. - Page 3

post #21 of 37
Dual boot same system below:

Windows Vista 32
Windows 7 Enterprise 64 SP1

Benchmarks no difference and most important games no difference.

Ughh.. no. I disagree.

64bit makes a large difference for benchmarks just as 32bit does. IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE BENCH TEST YOUR RUNNING.

There is no absolute answer to which is better in general for benching. It really comes down to :

#1 the bench test in question, and which OS it responds best to

#2 your ability to 'strip' an OS of non-essential features and services

I vlite my win 7 x64, removing services like error reporting, system restore and disabling others and my system only uses about 600mb of ram idle which isn't much more then a regular 32 bit OS. Cinebench will show the largest gains using 64bit, there aren't many others that 64bit will make that big of a difference. If you don't want to vlite it though you can disable services yourself and turn off some windows features to slim down 64bit for use with only 2gb of ram. 64bit is less likely to get viruses as well. You can go into task scheduler and disable tasks there also to lower your ram usage if you only have 2gb of ram.

For those who do not understand what a 64-bit OS does, please read: http://www.bit-tech.net/bits/2007/10...just_the_ram/1

3DMark11
Crysis

There is no noticeable difference in any of those scores period.

I am not stripping the OS of anything to get 3 or 4 more fps (blackviper joke)

I have confirmed this over and over again on this system running those same benchmarks there is no negotiable difference.

Thats a good list of three..here are some more if you care to test them as well and note the differences.

SuperPi
Wprime
Pifast
PC Mark
Aquamark3
ALL of the 3D Mark's.. '01-'11


There are plenty of instances where a 32bit OS is superior, as well as a 64bit OS. You should not limit your judgement to the 3x benchmarks you have run. It is widely known that Vista-32bit is one of the best OS for Wprime...Just like it is known that 32bit XP is the ONLY OS for benching 3D Mark '01 and '03.

*These are also reasons why those who bench regularly have many HDD's setup with various OS'. If you are going to waste 200$ on LN2 for some overclocking fun.. you dont start-off by shooting yourself in the foot, running a bench on an OS it doesnt like.

Just listed the top three and true there may be a few instances where you can get a little more fps. But 3 or 4 imo is in no way worth the hassle of shutting down services and other things that can give minimal boosts.

Are you serious... we are talking about benchmarking.. where 3-4fps means the difference between "you lost" or " you won". So yeah..its totally worth it to know what your dealing with before you waste your time setting up a system to bench just to get crap results.

Really?

I can turn settings down (which most do) and can compete in any shooter out there with success
