Windows® 7 Build 7000 outperforms Windows Vista® and Windows® XP
The Windows 7 Beta screenshots were leaked before it was even released. By December 23, 2009, the Windows 7 Build 7000 was available all over the Internet. After few days, x86 version was also not spared. On December 27, 2009, leaked version of the x86 version was everywhere. Torrent sites are very good for any new download.
Windows 7 Build 7000
A few service providers did some performance tests on a comparison between the Windows 7 Build 7000, Windows Vista SP1, and Windows XP SP3. In response, they got a far better performance from Build 7048 as compared to Build 7000. Earlier, in February, 36 major user-visible changes were brought about in Windows 7 by Microsoft ever since the Beta. These changes were highlighted earlier on the ability to turn off functions completely.
The results this time around were very interesting. Instead of using criterion programs, a ZDNet person did some tests to see that which operating system is faster in completing all of the tasks.
He tested the Windows 7 32-bit versions, Windows Vista SP1 and Windows XP SP3 and gave a 1 to the operating system that finished each test first, a 2 for second place, and a 3 for third.
Two separate test machines were used:
- An AMD Phenom 9700 2.4GHz system with 4GB of RAM and ATI Radeon 3850 graphics card.
- An Intel Pentium Dual Core E2200 2.2GHz with 1GB of RAM and NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS graphics card.
As none of these two computers is top of the line, but New Windows 7 surpass in performance out of both Windows Vista and Windows XP on both the systems. Windows 7 scored 25 points on both systems. On the Intel system, Windows XP scored 56 points and Windows Vista scored 57 and on AMD system, Windows XP scored 61 points and Windows Vista scored 52.
These results are decidedly good for Windows 7, but don’t think that your computer will fly if you install Windows 7 on it. As this is beta code and things will decidedly change till the final release of Windows 7. As every configuration is different, so while these results should get you excited, please keep things in presumption!
