Windows 8 vs Windows 7 tested with six video cards

Windows 8 vs Windows 7 tested with six video cards

Yesterday we received a mini-review conducted by Tom’s Hardware where graphics performance compared to Windows 8 and Windows 7 using two video cards, this time we get a slightly more comprehensive review conducted by 4Gamer, where they compare the performance of both operating systems with six video cards based on various and GPUs.

Video cards tested are:

  • Nvidia GTX 680.
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti.
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
  • AMD HD 7970.
  • AMD Radeon HD 7870.
  • AMD Radeon HD 7770.

The cards were tested on a computer based on the Intel Core i7-3960X equipped with 16GB of DDR3-1600. The drivers used were the recent GeForce 310.33 beta and beta 12.11. Without further ado, here are some of their test:

In this case one can see some situations where the graphics performance of is lower than that of Windows 7, we can cite the games Call of Duty 4 and Phantasy Star Online 2 (the latter unpublished); problems seem to be caused by the Premature graphics drivers from Nvidia and AMD for the new operating system, a situation that undoubtedly will change in the coming weeks / months as the new operating system matures (new patches and fixes).

We recommend reviewing the full review 4Gamer.
