Windows 7 Beta gaming performance evaluated

Posted on Tuesday, January 27 2009 @ 04:16:47 CET by

Windows 7 is still in beta stage so the performance of the operating system isn't fully optimized yet, but some sites already offer an early look at what the new version of Windows has to offer. Firingsquad, for instance, has compared the gaming performance of the new OS with XP and Vista. You can check it out over here.
Windows 7 is still in the early beta stages, so we urge our readers to keep this in mind when looking at the numbers. Drivers are being updated pretty frequently, so there is a lot of room left for improvement between now and when Microsoft finally releases 7 down the road. For instance, during our week long testing period, we were notified via Windows Update of 2 separate ATI driver releases. Microsoft hasn’t officially announced when 7 will be released, but rumors range from Q4 2009 to early 2010. It appears that Microsoft is attempting to get 7 into the market as soon as possible, as they try to repair their reputation after the lukewarm reception of Windows Vista.
The site concludes the Windows 7 Beta is surprisingly good, during a week long test they experienced no crashes or system halts and even thouh the performance is kind of a mixed bag, it's better than what you would expect from the first public beta.
