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.

Hello Reverence, welcome to Windows 7 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.

The 64-bit flavor is also much faster on my machine.

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.....
