Hi all.

Just wandering what sort of performance you're all getting out of Windows 7 (build 6956)?

I've got it running here on a Athlon64 3200+ with 1gb ddr400 ram - it's flying!

Would you say your copy is running slower or faster than vista did on the same machine?

Mine is quite definately a lot faster!

Tim

With the same software installed (39 programs) and approximately the same customisation, no significant differences. My Vista instaa┬┤llation outperforms 7 in some instances.

7 is just incredibly much faster on this machine, but that's to be expected given their attention to SSD drives. On Vista, XP, Linux and *BSD I experienced lots of I/O problems due to the inherit problems with less expensive SSD but 7 seems to have worked around that.

For me and my usage 7 on a single SSD is much faster than my 10K rpm RAID, the low access-time of SSD is truly king.

Well every benchmark game I tried out vastly outperforms Vista, XP and even slightly edges out Server 2008. No special machine. Opteron 170 @2.8Ghz, 2GB DDR, 9800GT 512MB... I was stunned to see it happen, but it did. Same on my ancient Thinkpad R40. It isn't just that the framerates are higher, but that it seems to feel smoother in terms of screen update somehow too.

Better than Vista on my machine, I haven't ran any formal benchmarks, but it's noticeably faster, and for some reason, it seems to be faster doing disk accesses and launching programs.

Core 2 Duo 1.86GHz (E6300)
3GB DDR2
250GB SATA
Intel 950 video

And I wonder when the comparing of an OS made over 7 years ago will stop and that people will actually bother to see what has changed in those 7 years in the advancements that have been made in the generations of Windows since then.

Well a lot of the people complaining about it only use Windows for one or two things, mainly games. They don't actually use Windows as it's intended with all the new features etc. Just look at two of the most brilliant things about 7, castle and libraries. There ought to be major buzz going on about it but instead we have pointless benchmarks where a drop from 67 to 63 fps in a game consitutes a failure. People are sheep that bashes Windows with little actual investigation simply because bashing MS is the "in" thing to do. 8-)

Chances are your mum's laptop has Vista Preinstalled, complete with your usual array of OEM bloatware, and that's by far the largest factor. A clean install of Vista on any PC built since a year before Vista's launch (with the right amount of RAM) runs Vista fast anyway.
