I have done many tests on a few different machines with HP, Pro and Ultimate.

The same machine with HP installed vs Ultimate installed etc.

Believe it or not I think Home Premium is the fastest.


Your question pertains to HOW MANY physical processors the operating system can use, meaning, more then 1, such as in a server environment.

Of the Microsoft Windows operating systems typically installed on home computers only Windows XP Professional with Service Pack two or higher, Vista Business, Vista Enterprise, Vista Ultimate, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Enterprise, and Windows 7 Ultimate, support two physical CPUs and support multi-core processors. All other home use Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 operating systems also support multi-core processors, but do not support multiple physical CPUs and cannot be made to support multiple processors. Adding an additional processor to Windows is not difficult, but you must use an operating system that has support for multiple processors.

Home Premium, it`s cheaper.

But don`t you already have Ultimate installed ?

How long has it been since the install ? If you`re not happy with it, you can always reinstall.

Has it been defraged regularly ?

Disk cleanup ?

It mean how many PHYSICAL CPUs the OS supports. Do not confuse Physical with the number of CORES. A Physical CPU is the actual processor package. All current CPUs being made today are looked at as ONE (1) Physical CPU even if they 4, 6, 8 or whatever numbers of processor cores included, placed, on the dye that gets installed into the computers CPU socket.

There are very few boards, especially for home use, that have 2 or more CPU sockets.

Installing a different version of Windows will not make your computer faster. Home Premium is not lighter or faster then Ultimate. Those who believe so, suffered from a placebo effect. (I'm sorry, but it is true.) Understand, all those extra features of Ultimate they are all passive, they do not run unless you use them. (Not background tasks).
