    Windows 7 build 7000 outperforms Vista and XP

    Normally, I would frown upon testing beta software against final code that has been updated frequently, but the results this time around are very interesting. Instead of using benchmarking programs, Adrian Kingsley-Hughes from ZDNet put together 23 real-world scenarios to see which operating system would be the quickest to complete all of the tasks.

    He tested the 32-bit versions of Windows 7 build 6.1.7000.0.081212-1400, Windows Vista SP1, and Windows XP SP3. Two separate test machines were used:
    • An AMD Phenom 9700 2.4GHz system fitted with an ATI Radeon 3850 and 4GB of RAM
    • An Intel Pentium Dual Core E2200 2.2GHz fitted with an NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS and 1GB of RAM
    Neither of these computers is top of the line, but Windows 7 managed to outperform both Vista and XP on both. Kingsley gave a 1 to the operating system that finished each test first, a 2 for second place, and a 3 for third. Windows 7 scored 25 points on both systems, placing first in 21 tests, and second in two other ones. On the AMD system, XP scored 61 points and Vista scored 52, while on the Intel system, XP scored 56 points and Vista scored 57.


    Either way, Windows 7 slaughtered both of its predecessors. Bill Gates wasn't kidding when he said Windows 7 would "be more efficient."

    All good news! Even though Vista runs better then XP ever did here on all of my systems.

    If only someone would leak the x64 windows 7 7000 I could give it a better shake, I did load the x86 and it seemed to run fine, but I got to much RAM to hobble it with a 32 bit install.

    Unfortunately, there is no x64 to leak at the moment.

    Hello all.

    I know one thing; for 32-bit, 7000 screams on my system! For that matter 64-bit 6801 isn't no slouch. I'm ready for 64-bit 7000; actually, I'd like to see 64-bit 7004.

    I am running the 32bit 7000 build and it does move quick! I really want to try the 64bit!

    I didn't know where to say this so I thought I'd post it here.

    I Installed the 32bit version on a spare PC today (wasn't prepared to mess around with a vital PC). Less then 2 hours to download 2.5Gb, and around 30mins to install, and it runs faster than my Vista ultimate 64 or XP Pro, which are both on impressive computers.

    The computer I installed it on: AMD Sempron 3000+ 512Mb Ram, and it boots faster and seems more responsive, than any of my other PCs.

    There's a few things I'm not too keen on with it, but considering it's a beta just released, it's looking good..

    I had great results with an old sempron 2400.

    I am at work checking out these results with a co-worker and we are shocked.

    I am going to install it (dual boot with Vista x64) tonight and see for myself!
