Windows XP vs. Vista X86
I'm surprized but not much....how much faster my machine benches using XP over Vista. I've run 3 complete tests using 6.1 on each hard drive....one has XP the other Vista X86. The highest score my vista drive could muster was a total of 746. My XP hard drive runs at an average of 825 with the same settings. I was not surprized to see my 3D graphics score with vista slower....855 vs 925 with XP.
Am I seeing real results? or is 6.1 not "tweaked" to run as well on Vista.
My guess is that XP is still the more "mature" OS....(by the way I did run two benchmarks with Vista SP1 and there was really no difference at all in any of the scores.
Your mileage may vary......
