Windows 7: Poorer Performance on 32-bit W7 than my XP

22 Dec 2009   #11

windows 8.1 Pro x64

try vista drivers for your card, you wont get wddm 1.1, which according to microsoft is the only downside of using vista drivers in windows 7.

the stuttering see if it coincides with hdd activity. If it does the fix may be to enable advanced write caching on your hdd in device manager.
