A friend writes games in C++ in his spare time. He bought some software for this in 1996 I think it was, which he still uses. About a year ago he bought a laptop with Windows 7 and bitched about how he had to run the program from 1996 in compatibility mode and as an admin for it to work. I argued he was being retarded.
I already stated that I didnt recall which benchmarks. Introducing extra steps just to run a benchmark in Win 8 that runs just fine in Win 7 I consider "messing" with it. The only benchmark that will not run properly in Win7 is Aquamark...it will run, but not up to snuff compared to XP. Btw, use Nvidia 313.96 driver for valid results in your 3DMark 2013 tests.
