Default Windows 7 RTM vs. Windows Vista - 3D Performance

Today we'll be having a look at how the new Windows 7 operating system goes against Windows Vista which has really got a love / hate relationship going for so many people. The uptake on the OS was never great, which is the main reason why today we're still including XP in our graphics card benchmarks. The main focus today will be VGA performance; we'll have a look at one card in a number of our benchmarks and see how performance differs in the two operating systems.

There isn't a whole lot that has to be said today, so we'll quickly have a look at our testbed and give a quick blurb on what we're doing before getting stuck into the benchmarks and see how the two operating systems perform.

Default

"on par" with Vista is just not good enough, since XP > Vista when it comes to gaming... also they are not testing Win Vista vs Win 7, they are testing NVIDIA drivers more than anything else; they need to add ATI card/driver to provide a better balanced overview of the state of affairs
