Windows 7: My system seems faster when I have Aero Theme on

Windows 7 baby ! : D
 
 
My system seems faster when I have Aero Theme on

I find it odd that my overall system speed seems quicker and snappier when I've got Aero enabled compared to using just the basic or classic theme.


Why is that anyway ?

My system :

AMD Athlon TF-20 1.60GHz Single Core
ATI Radeon X1200
2X2GB of DDR2 RAM

As far as I understand it, aero runs almost entirely from you GPU whereas classic utilizes the systems CPU.

I think aero enables some more hardware acceleration.
(But this is great! More colors and glass and more performance!)

Just like Nina said...It runs on your GPU and lets your CPU handle other things
