XP SP3 Boosts Performance. Vista SP1 Doesn't

With both Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and Windows XP Service Pack 3 nearing completion and already delivered to select experts, it is about time we see some benchmarking scores and comparisons.

The research staff at exo-blog benchmarked both service packs and while they were disappointed with the much anticipated Vista SP1, they were pleasantly surprised with XP SP3's unexpected performance gains.

The team benchmarked Windows Vista RTM (with no updates) against a fully updated Windows Vista SP1 version. Both versions performed identically in all tests except 2 where SP1 performed 1% faster in one and 2% in the other.

"Bottom Line: If you've been disappointed with the performance of Windows Vista to date, get used to it. SP1 is simply not the panacea that many predicted", the research staff concluded. "In the end, it's Vista's architecture - not a lack of tuning or bug fixes - that makes it perform so poorly on systems that were "barn-burners" under Windows XP."

On the other hand, benchmarking Windows XP SP2 against SP3 showed an unexpected 10% performance gain. Both XP versions performed more than 100% better than Windows Vista for the same tasks on the same hardware.

The home loans are essential for guys, which would like to ground their own organization. As a fact, that is not very hard to receive a auto loan.

I had a desire to begin my commerce, however I didn't earn enough of cash to do it. Thank God my close dude recommended to use the loan. Thus I took the small business loan and realized my desire.

Have no a lot of money to buy a house? You not have to worry, just because this is real to get the business loans to resolve such kind of problems. Therefore take a consolidation loan to buy everything you need.

Ah true jigga but xp does everything that vista does. Most of the time a new OS is meant to improve things, more feautres etc. But in this case vista is purely a better looking, poorly organised XP. Everything is there from xp and nothing really new. The main thing is how vista handles things, for example: GAMES, crysis will run perfect on high with max res in XP, but on high (not dx10) in vista, it barely pulls of 2 frames per second. Its vistas architecture that sucks. It is far worse than XP

anon at 17:34 what you say is quite true with one minor exception, you are obviously referring to the more stable and wildly used 32 bit. however. all reports show that under 64 bit, crysis, can run at max graphics, all dx10 features, and pull off the same frame rate as cyrsis can maxed out on a dx9 XP machine.

killx@19:28 - Sadly for me, that is just not the case. I have a Q6600, 4GB RAM @ 1066 & 2 8800GTS 640 OC and Crysis plays dreadfully for me on Vista 64 on both 32bit and 64bit modes (though there is no support for quad cores [in some cases] & SLI for it YET). GOW has actually run better for me and that's saying something. The only game that really seems to shine for me is Jericho & that runs like it's on steroids!! I have just installed the beta version of SP1 & there has been some improvment in gaming, but over all, I cannot see the quicker start up times, quicker transfers of files etc. that they said would occur.

Everyone whined about XP when it was released but they all ended up using it, now we have it all over again with Vista.i have Vista 64 and XP installed on different drives, i very rarely use XP only for the odd game that doesnt work on Vista 64 (Act of War etc..), in the end of the day the choice is yours, and i personally choose vista as my main OS, especially as XP 64 has so little support >:(Crysis doesnt run that bad for me on medium/high settings @ 1680x1050 in 32 bit mode, although i notice a slight improvement in XP, but that is the ONLY game i notice a difference on, every other game runs well withE6850 C2D, 4GB RAM, 8800GT 512.

xp DID suck balls until teh many Sp's and other patches came out. M$ has foudn it best to release OS's before they're really done to let teh poor suckers that get pulled into teh marketing (and buy pre-built OEM PCs) to do teh testing on their behalf.XP was aweful, now it's okay. Vista NOW sucks, but in a year or so I'm sure it'll be much better.
