    Default Microsoft Windows 8 Gaming Performance

    Introduction



    The year's biggest tech launch, Microsoft Windows 8, is on course for a late-October launch. Before consumers can get their hands on the new operating system, Microsoft made its fit-for-market version (RTM) available to industry partners and enterprise clients. We got our hands on the new operating system.

    Windows 8 is more than a new operating system with a new user-interface. It is based on the new Windows 6.2 kernel and comes with a new driver model; in particular, a new display driver model (WDDM 1.2). The new DDM changes the way software interacts with graphics hardware, meaning that Windows 8 could have a different graphics performance from Windows 7.

    Meanwhile, the two leading gaming GPU markers, NVIDIA and AMD, have both claimed to be the first with drivers certified to work with Windows 8. We took this opportunity to install Windows 8 RTM on our VGA test-bench, picked a high-end graphics card from each of the two camps - here the GeForce GTX 680 and the Radeon HD 7970 - and made them work with drivers NVIDIA and AMD recommend for use with Windows 8. We put the two graphics cards through our VGA gaming benchmarks with these Windows 8 drivers and came up with two objectives for our review:
    • To find out what difference in graphics performance Windows 8 makes over Windows 7
    • How NVIDIA's and AMD's drivers recommended for Windows 8 fare

    - - - Updated - - -

    for another example Visual Studio 2012 installation took 54 mins in windows 7 where as in windows 8 it was finished in just 14 mins.....It is indeed incredible. Ami just ekta example dilam.....emon aro onek kisu ase....

    Oh I shutdown PC everyday, so didn't have to restart every 5 days

    vs2012 may be optimized for w8 or your w7 may be affected!

    Yes. If you must install now, find the w8 pro with media player.

    Try this: http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/index.html

    I want to switch to Win8 permanently, don't want the hassle of installing it again. Can anyone suggest me a link/copy, RTM(with hashes checked)?

    I'm going to get a free upgrade license soon. Whats the cheapest way to use it legitly? In 7 we could inject the upgrade key after a trail install. Is that possible in 8 yet?

    I'm thinking about buying XP and then just using the key to upgrade, any other option other then that? Preferrably free or dirt cheap (70 not cheap enough for me )

    upgrade is $15 (or $30 not sure) if you have original XP/vista/7 already.
