  1. so should I download windows 8.1 or stik with windows 8

  2. I’m building a gaming PC and i don’t know whether to stay with Windows 7 OR
    upgrade to Windows 8.1.. I am looking for FPS,Performance,And Speed.

  3. for the test system why use a Xeon CPU ? Xeon CPUs are selected for more
    stablity supposely so that might throw it off a nudge as not alot of
    consumers are with a Xeon CPU as they are a ton for the effectively the
    same thing as a core i5 is.

  4. Have a asus notebook running on a 1.86ghz cpu and 4 gb ram. should i update
    it from windows 8 to 8.1? Will the performance be upgraded or is it the
    same thing?

  5. Great job. Thanks for taking the time to test this.

  6. Although Windows 7 scored a little better in most test,
    Windows 8 and 8.1 had smoother interface, loaded
    programs faster and booted faster. They also used less
    RAM and HDD space.

    In games the three perform almost the same with the later two maintaining a
    more stable fps without noticeable drops. 

  7. the 8.1 is so annoying im waiting till they go to something else sutch a
    small difference has no justice at 100$

  8. We tested.
    Two computers, Windows 7 X64 and Windows 8.1 X64 and two times reinstaled
    OS, for more precise test.
    W8.1 BF4 Lowest FPS was 52.
    W8.1 BF4 Highest FPS 71
    W7 BF4 Lowest FPS was 49.
    W7 BF4 Highest FPS was 72.
    You cant see diference of 5 FPS, that does not affect game, so why i should
    endure Windows 8.1 disgustin GUI which is more harmful to eyes, if i can
    stay on Windows 7, which have a lot better GUI.
