    Since Microsoft released the Windows 7 Beta for download to General Public, I decided to preform an actual install, as opposed to a Virtual Machine install that I've been doing. Now i know that people have benchmarked XP versus Vista versus Win7 before, but *I* haven't done it :p

    I'll be benchmarking the following items:

    Futuremark 3DMark06
    Futuremark 3DMark Vantage
    WinRAR v3.80 700mb compression/extraction times
    SpeedTest of Network

    We'll see if i can come up with anything else in the meantime. For now here's some screenshots and the system specs:

    Motherboard: ASUS M2A-VM
    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Overclocked to 3.02GHz
    GPU: ASUS EAH Radeon HD 4670 512mb GDDR3 Overclocked
    Storage: 320GB SATA
    Memory: 2GB [2x1024MB] Kingston DDR2 800MHz

    For results and screenshots see:

    How can you use 3DMark Vantage to compare WinXP SP3 with Win7 ?

    Vantage only works with Vista and I think Win7. So that test is VOID since you cant run it in XP.

    I know 3DMark Vantage doesnt work on XP, im just including it for a better idea of how far your overclocks go in Win7.
