We are working on switching some systems from Win98se to XP and have noticed how much slower XP is on even some simple applications we have.
So I have run Performance test 5.0 on the same computer running XP and then Win98.
I am surprise to see many of the CPU ratings like integer math, floating point math, MMX are HALF the value in XP as compared to Win98.
Many of the Graphic 2D ratings are also much lower like GUI.
I also found some cases where XP tested much higher like in the Memory -Allocate small block.
So has anyone else seen this? Is this typical to see the display and CPU to ratings decrease so much in XP?
