Angry 1.9%-32.4% frame rate drop in Vista.

"Vista is the better Windows, because it behaves better, because it looks better and because it feels better. But it cannot perform better than Windows XP. Is this a K.O. for Windows Vista in the enthusiast space?"


If you go to the link, you'll notice in UT 2004, frame rates droped 32.4% while it was running in Vista.

And in F.E.A.R they dropped 8.3%


If you're a gamer, it seems that it's best to hold off on upgrading to Windows Vista until DX10 games are released.

Now it is a good idea to keep in mind that this is with current top of the line hardware. I'm sure we'll see better performance in games as hardware advances.

That's a good call snyper, I touched on that a bit about the hardware part.

I do having a feeling, alot of M$ haters are going to be bashing on Vista for that. But won't keep in mind that it's with current hardware.

now correct me if im wrong but vista is built around directx10? and basically uses a directx9 emulator so to speak for everything that uses dx9...now i may be totally off but people dont understand that if you have something built around something new and has to use something that emulates a previous ver. your not gonna get all fps and performance you see with something thats built around that previous ver. of software...if that made any sense at all

most of the performance differences are probably due to immature drivers for vista, i'd like to see results after some driver maturity and factor in a few other simple things for vista like turning off windows defender in the background, etc.

some people get more fps in oblivion with vista opposed to xp, way too early to make any bold statements, toms hardware of all people put that in their article.
