# 1 Win 7 performance vs XP?
01-20-2010, 01:24 PM
I'm contemplating upgrading from XP to 7 on the machine I've been playing ST: O on. Should I expect a significant hit in performance after the upgrade? What has your experience been?

I have a dual boot running between Windows XP Home 32-bit and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, and I have run 3dmark06 on both of them and find the performance to be more or less identical. The fact that Windows 7 can match the performance of a nine year old operating system but also give a vastly improved feature set (Snap and the taskbar are worth it all by themselves IMHO) is really pretty remarkable.
