Hi There

Does anyone know were I can get my hands on a current performance benchmark for Windows 7 Vs XP SP3

I have found a couple on ZD Net but they are for beta versions of Windows 7. (I need final release)

Identical hardware running windows 7, reimaged with XP (bar charts, graphs that sort of thing

Thanks

A high performing machine may not run XP very well. For high performance, you need Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, 4Gb of memory or more and a very fast hard drive. Such a machine will run rings around XP (I don't need any benchmark to know that).  Such a machine might run XP, but XP is 32-bit, limited to 3Gb and generally is now old and long in the tooth.  ...
