Is Windows 7 Gaming Performance Over Vista Worth Trying?

Sponsored Links
277w ago - How is Windows 7 PC gaming better than Windows Vista gaming?

The Windows 7 64 bit edition seems to handle the 64 bit technology better than both Windows XP x64 and Windows Vista x64.

It seems to do this so well that even the 32 bit programs have extra room to breathe because the system resources and other background programs are able to run in an efficient 64 bit environment.

This is ironic, because many people were under the impression that Windows 7 gaming would not be as good because Windows 7 64 bit would need to use a 32 bit emulator to run 32 bit programs.

That was the case with Windows Vista gaming when you were running Windows Vista x64, but Windows 7 x64 seems to have overcome this problem.

One of other things that people may be worry about when it comes to Windows 7 gaming is compatibility. They want to be assured that they will actually be able to play the game. The good thing about this is that many of the games were designed with Windows 7 gaming compatibility in mind.

Windows 7 is built from Windows Vista so you should not have to worry about Windows 7 gaming compatibility. Windows Vista is compatible with all of the latest games beyond Windows XP.

Finally, Windows 7 was built to be compatible with older software and hardware while maintaining its compatibility with the new. That means greater gaming compatibility compared to both Windows Vista x64 and Windows XP x64 combined.

Well, I can confirm that Win7 is indeed faster than Vista, but It's also my first 64bit OS ever.

I haven't tried to play any games yet, but I have a ATI Radeon X1950XTX and they don't support anything older than a 2100HD (I think) on Win7. That means you need to buy a new gfx card if you want working drivers.

Does anyone have an idea of how Windows 7 will run on a laptop with only 1gb of RAM? My laptop is having a problem loading it's original Vista os and I was thinking about installing Windows 7 onto it. Any ideas?

Windows 7 leaves very tiny foot prints comapared to Vista.. Its just like an XP.. So it won't take that much of your RAM

I'm running cod with 2 gb ram only smoothly.
