Quick!!!!test great review w1zzard...i will wait for months to use it.
This test was useless from the start. MS already specified its only good for stability and security and it's mostly a cumulative update. :shadedshu
But we wouldnt know if there would be degradation in gaming performance.
so whats the point of any review then? the companies tell us everything about their product anyway
Yeah, but I thought it's a system performance test, like the ones you used to do when first service packs were released for Vista, for example. Not only just gaming.
I was interested if any increase in performance of default apps, copying/writing of files, databases, windows startup/shutdown, system response, etc, etc, etc, etc.....
i never did any tests like that. also the title seems to be clear enough
Havent loaded it on any of my desktop rigs. I did however load it on my netbook. Everything loaded fine. Took forever... but that was due to my low power netbook. Seems to have added a little more quickness to the overall operation. Things seem to open and load up a bit quicker. Boot up seems to be a bit snappier, shut down has slowed way down. Not a big deal though.
No performance gains. Was somehow expecting this. Will install SP1 at a later date. BTW how much space do I need?
It's all here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/learn-how-to-install-windows-7-service-pack-1-sp1
no sp = no updates?
No this is not the case, if you have been updating Windows regularly you probably already have the lion's share of the components included in the SP; however, it seems the SP also includes certain features that were not provided via the usual update channels.
I mean in this review. Does no sp = no updates too?
I'm wondering if SP1 has the latest DirectX patch? As it doesn't come via the normal Update process, I suspect that it might not.
Thanks to the Wizzard for doing this for us...glad I don't have to do it myself.
here i see no improvement, but rather a little braking in the speed department.
Thanks, perfectly done.
Thx for the review W1zz
I saw the review now (albeit late) & read parts of it (I will read it in full later on) & l figured hmm why not give it a Digg so the 1st Digg I´ve ever given goes to you/TPU.
OT: So you guys didn´t get any performance gains @ all? cuz I got 0.1 higher rating in WEI on graphics & aero right after the SP1 install, whats up with that?
Going by my own standards I have to say that WIN7*are superstable even without any SP (unlike all the other previous MS WIN OS I have used, excluding "ancients" like Commodore VIC 20 w. Basic & a maximum of 28 pixels on your screen if I remember it correctly (I can be a bit "slow" now & then, but thats fully off-topic)
So I say GJ to Microsoft, both with the job on WIN7 & SP1 for not degrading any performance for others [as of yet noticed/unheard of] + the upgrading performance for me.
* Well I use x64 Enterprise Edition so i cant say anything about all the other editions of WIN7
WIN7+SP1 FTW! (leaving other OS unmentioned, as I have no exp. of them, well almost none anyways)
