windows 7 x86 > windows 7 x64

Hello is that only me or windows 7 x86 working faster then the x64.

I was using the x86 for like a week and now using x64 and things working slower for me.

But maybe its only me just asking your opinions.

Maybe you just have to let Superfetch catch up.

Hello Reverence, welcome to Se7en Forums!

It's probably as Airbot says; but it may have alot to do with how much RAM you have installed; 64-bit does its best with at least 8GB of RAM.

Yeah it is because that is not enough RAM for x64 to yield faster results. You should use the 32bit.

Hmmm - I'll have some definitive answers in a while here, but although I am seeing 64bit slower in things like reboot time it is a lot faster in others (well, really cause I can now use Thunderbird 3 b2 pre 64bit and get my email a boatload faster!)

I have also decided to make this my dev OS - All the VS crap and the F# CTP and other crap are getting installed on this machine permanently now - I think.

I may wait one more iteration, since I am trying to build the mini-z3r010 machine....

Decisions, decisions.....
