The HUGE BIG-BIG Windows Vista Thread

Recommended Posts

k it's a driver issue. disabled nv lan and switched to marvell and it's all good. network transfer works fine.

Vista gaming will be 10 to 15 per cent slower than XP

 

Microsoft is telling its selected gaming industry chaps that gaming under Vista will be ten to fifteen per cent slower than XP. It is because you have to load the 3D desktop all the time. It is ironic, as the same company tells the developers that the same API can do certain things up to four times faster.

 

Inquirer

 

While playing Source in RC1 I get about 30 FPS with a little lag :-| Needless to say, I was like WTF?! I get 130 fps or more in XP. (settings maxed in both cases)

 

Additionally, in FEAR I get avg 80 FPS max settings during the stress test. Vista reports 22, with BBBAAAADDDD scroll effects.....

 

I dont think rendering the 3d background can hit me that bad can it? (i didnt toy around with settings or anything, just installed some stuff and went for it)

i play source with config in sig at 1920x1200 with 6x/16x and everything high but hdr. negligable differences between vista and xp. my lows are a bit lower but still maintain above 40fps even in heavy firefights. similar with nfs:mw. lows are a bit lower but i've not had to change my settings to maintain playable framerates.

well i had a random restart with rc2, only thing i CAN think of is that i installed vista nvidia drivers, and thats all, and when i got back in vista, it gave a description of the error, "blue screen"

anyone have this yet?

So there are vista drivers for nf4? Hm, maybe that was the issue i was having with the framerates. no way my rig should underperform *buffs fingernails* XD

Nf4 drivers are encorporated into Vista, audio drivers are not.

The nvidia gfx drivers are included and there are also more recent beta drivers (all are beta I guess) but I didn't notice too much of an improvement. Ran well enough for these forgiving eyes ;)

There will probably be a workaround or a hotfix/service pack to remedy that within a month of release :D.

I just have this feeling that there are way too many things about Vista that either we don't know or maybe are not supposed to know.

 

Ever meet a guy and think, "there's something about him that just doesn't sit right with me"?

I got that feeling.

I totally agree with you soundx98, I think that even with some major service tweaking we won't be able to stop big brother from imposing his intentions on us.

"Windows + tab" still makes me smile though :)
