Windows 7 SP1 x64 vs Windows 8 Pro x64 build 9200 (RTM): Gaming Performance

Start64!In less than two weeks, Windows 8 will be available for anyone to buy and install on their personal computers or simply, upgrade their current operating system. But is Windows 8 any good? Since I will focus on performance this will not be a review but a gaming performance comparison between Windows 7 and Windows 8.


Windows 8 has been in development since 2009 and has seen a lot of debate whether it is a viable successor to Windows 7. Most of us got a chance at testing the new OS by installing one of the three beta versions released to the public by Microsoft: Developer Preview, Consumer Preview and Release Preview.

Metro UI

The first striking difference from Windows 7 and probably the most debated "feature" is the new Metro interface (Metro UI). For me, as a gamer, programmer etc, Metro UI has absolutely no use, but more than that it keeps getting in the way. I must admit, even though I've been using Windows 8 as a secondary OS, I still don't know how to Shut Down or Restart my PC without signing out first.
