Haven't tested yet but I have a warning. Crysis2 with high-res texture pack DX11 is not working in Win8 RP, at least a few weeks ago when I tried to run it.

Just a heads up for you guys running BF3,I found out this morning that the screen would just go black,So i reinstalled the DX from the install folder ,And it is now working,I think when you install games if the installer runs DX setup for it you have to keep installing it (BF3 one)which is the newest one.But every game needs to run or install some dll file for itself and it breaks the one for BF3.

Also there is some visal c+++ 08-10 updates for Win8 today.

office14 installed no problem,Just waiting for the 30+ updates..........

Crap Of Duty 2 works,had to validate the files and it installed some missing ones :)

So has anyone noticed any FPS increase with something like BF3 or is it about the same as Windows 7?

You can add me to the list. However you might have to start a new category as I am rocking it on my Laptop with Windows 8 Enterprise Retail!!!

Yep, it is not the trial, RTM, or an OEM version. This is the real deal. :)

Been playing with the RTM at work and its pretty slick. I like it more then the Release Preview.

So has anyone noticed any FPS increase with something like BF3 or is it about the same as Windows 7?
Its actually about 5% worse do to Windows 8 drivers really are not there for both AMD and Nvidia. By the time Retail releases and Nvidia and AMD release new WHQL drivers performance should be the same if not better. Itll most likely be a bit better.

I am personally running an Nvidia system in my laptop. The 302.80 drivers don't seem to be WHQL drivers. Have not gamed on it yet.

Well in my quest for installing My games, Came upon F12010 and need a Windows Live update....Well I found this http://www.xbox.com/en-US/LIVE/PC/DownloadClientInstalled it and my game now works:)
Crap of Poopy 2 Modern Fart-ware 2 Single Player is not working but the multi player is..... strange ......any ideas guys?
I've added the link to the OP, good find!

When can I buy officialy windows 8? I only see upgarade in amazon.
Like Drone said, October 26 is the retail release. From what we have seen so far it looks like MS has only announced pricing for the upgrade versions of Windows 8. Full versions will probably be announced closer to release date.

Control Panel almost virgin (realtek lol). Enterprise has windows to go. I didn't test it though. I need a bigger flash drive.
I might just download the Enterprise evaluation just to try the Windows To Go feature. Really curious about it.

So has anyone noticed any FPS increase with something like BF3 or is it about the same as Windows 7?
I'll be doing some testing tomorrow with a few games and I'll post my results here.

Awesome man! Kinda makes me regret I didn't get the Professional Technet subscription :(

I am personally running an Nvidia system in my laptop. The 302.80 drivers don't seem to be WHQL drivers. Have not gamed on it yet.
I'm running 304.79 since 302.80 would crash on me every once in a while. Can't wait for the WHQL drivers as well, but knowing nvidia we might be waiting a while.

So has anyone noticed any FPS increase with something like BF3 or is it about the same as Windows 7?
To be honest it loads much faster using a sata2 hd and old hardware (see system specs)It also feels less laggy to me.I played maybe 20 mins yesterday And about 1 1/2 On Thursday night when i finally got it working.

Reason why I posted the 3dmark11 result was it actually scored about 300 points higher then under Win7,For some reason though 3dMark website lost all my old results(up until 12.6 cats remember they have been beta since)Shame too is I think my highest run was 17081-17145 Under 3dmark11 in Win7.

Okay I just found my old results and the 3dMArk11 score1 is win7 and Score 2 is Win8(boy I had vantage and 11 mixed up lol My bad )

3dMark11 score s
Result details
Score 1
P7954 3DMarks
Score 2
P7857 3DMarks
Its about 95-98 points behind with gen1 cats.So in about 2-3 months it has potential to increase.

Okay here is Vantage Score1 is Win8 and score2 Win7,I do have a Win7 22751 score but It shows my cards were over clocked.The 21912 is with stock clocks.


Score 1
P22017 3DMarks
Score 2
P21912 3DMarks

Again it seems as if the cats under Win8 are not up to par.Maybe you green users will have better results .

My Dad bought a new HP PC that came with Windows 8 upgrade for 14.99, he doesn't plan to upgrade, so I registered my email to be notified when the 14.99 upgrade is ready. Hopefully it will work on my PC, $25 saved would be nice.

I think I will just do a complete re-install with Win8 whenever that 14.99 upgrade becomes available, to avoid any issues.

those upgrade disks still need to find the old setup.exe to prove you have an old Windows ver?I remember my 98 upgrade would need me to put the 95 cd or disk1 from 3.11 Work groups. in and it would let me do a clean install.

I planned to upgrade from win 7 to win 8, then backup win 8 to a disc write down my new win 8 key, and re-install it all fresh. That's the plan anyway, but plans do change. I don't want to encounter any issues, and I think a fresh install and not just an upgrade is the best way to do that.

Skydrive is AWESOME! I love being able to sync/recover settings through it. I'm glad Microsoft has finally made it useful lol. Free space on the cloud is never bad either.

EDIT: just tested the theme packs for you. Both seem to work for me :toast:

Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, and Mafia 2 bench comparison

So I ran the benchmark for HL2: Lost Coast and Mafia 2 and did a comparison between Windows 7 and 8. Here's the test parameters and benchmark results (note that the Mafia 2 benchmark recognizes Windows 8 as Windows 7 Business):

Test Setup

Mid-2010 15" MacBook Pro

Intel Core i5 M 540 - 2.53GHz
8GB DDR3 1066MHz RAM
nVidia GeForce 330m GT 256MB
750GB WD Caviar Black HDD
Widows 7 Ultimate and Windows 8 pro - both 64bit
Windows 7 video drivers: 304.79
Windows 8 video drivers: 304.79

tl;dr

Windows 7 Half-Life 2: Lost Coast - 113.89 fps
Windows 8 Half-Life 2: Lost Coast - 111.16 fps

Windows 7 Mafia 2 - 12.1 fps
Windows 8 Mafia 2 - 12.1 fps

I ran the Mafia 2 benchmark in both Windows 7 and Windows 8 three times, but got the same result each time which was very weird.
