Windows 7: LOSS of proformance on 7


23 Jun 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
 
 

Ok just a few things I want to say. I have seen a drop of 10fps in my move to windows 7.
1.) I account this too. Its still a RC not a full product.
2.) Vista has been out for some time now so companies have been about to tweak their drivers to work better on it.
3.) Windows 7 has DirectX 11, which most companies are just getting to play with now that they have the RC.

I also was getting lower fps due to my sound card drivers once I updated them, it was about half of what I am getting now which is 70-100 fps.
I noticed you stated you where getting bad fps in L4D if this is in steam update you sound drivers for some reason I have found it helps on all the systems I've messed with.

Build 7100

I thought that It might be a sound thing to, so I updated the drivers... no dice.

I could understand specific games requiring some tweaking from the graphics card driver, but Windows 7 causing your games to run slower just sounds like user error somewhere.

On that note, I'm sure any performance issues you're having with specific games will be fixed in a future Nvidia/ATI driver update.

I don't believe it's users error. I'm an A+ tech. I know how to install windows and drivers. I have the latest drivers and I keep updates. I built this computer. I was just wondering if any one else was having a similar problem or if it's just me. I think it might have to do with my onboard graphics card. The benches I'm getting are close to what I would get on that card with out my 9800 GTX+.

Have you tried running any test programs to make sure that your two cards are working together? Something like GPUz should be able to tell you.
I do see a bit of a drop not a major one, but I account that to Windows 7 being a RC and drivers for a lot of hardware are still in "beta" mode.

I'll try that.

Rebenched on mimimal settings, got about the same frame rate. Infact, when I lowered the settings i got whose frame rate (I use nvidia scaling instead of my screen's scaling, so that could account for that). It must be a driver or a windows problem. I about 2 fail solutions before I just re-install windows. Anyone know the best way to back up programs and documents?

I do not have any hard numbers and there is only one game I am playing right now and its the Last Remnant...and I have not felt any slowdowns in terms of fps but to be honest I wont be surprised even if you DO see framerate drops. As others have pointed out this is an RC OS so its not really right to compare its performance.

But the other thing I think as well...is that this OS is definitely a bit more robust, and therefore requires a bit more horsepower to do what it does, and I wont be surprised to see if its performance in games when compared to XP is indeed lacking.

I play Crysis with a 9600 GT and I get 30 fps on high. You can go into the bios and turn it off real easy mr A+ tech, if you think that's what it may be.

Common sense says if you install a AGP/PCI-E video card that onboard should be disabled in BIOS.

As far as throwing around that your an A+ tech - that pretty much means jack, anyone can buy a book and pass a test.

After you run a game, go back and look at its config file - it will tell you what renderer it's using. Hell most will tell you from console.

You could also use that one ATi tool, or GameBooster. Didn't help me when I tried to get HL2 running on my craptop, but it may make a difference for you.
