Windows 7 build 7057 Performance

many people clam that Windows 7 build 7057 is the release candidate (RC) build , but certenly pretty close to being RC .

Rather than publish a series of synthetic benchmark results for the different operating systems and builds (Microsoft frowns upon benchmarking beta builds, not to mention the fact that the final numbers only really matter for the release candidate and RTM builds), I’ve decided to put Windows 7, Vista and XP head-to-head in a series of real-world tests to find out which OS comes out top.

so you can see performance tests that give some good result ...

The test systems

I’ve used two desktop systems as the test machines:
An AMD Phenom 9700 2.4GHz system fitted with an ATI Radeon 3850 and 4GB of RAM
An Intel Pentium Dual Core E2200 2.2GHz fitted with an NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS and 1GB of RAM

The tests

There are 31 tests in all, most of which are self-explanatory:
Install OS - Time it takes to install the OS
Boot up - Average boot time to usable desktop
Shut down - Average shut down time
Move 100MB files - Move 100MB of JPEG files from one hard drive to another
Move 2.5GB files - Move 2.5GB of mixed size files (ranging from 1MB to 100MB) from one hard drive to another
Network transfer 100MB files - Move 100MB of JPEG files from test machine to NAS device
Network transfer 2.5GB files - Move 2.5GB of mixed size files (ranging from 1MB to 100MB) from test machine to NAS device
Move 100MB files under load - Move 100MB of JPEG files from one hard drive to another while ripping DVD to .ISO file
Move 2.5GB files under load - Move 2.5GB of mixed size files (ranging from 1MB to 100MB) from one hard drive to another while ripping DVD to .ISO file
Network transfer 100MB files under load - Move 100MB of JPEG files from test machine to NAS device while ripping DVD to .ISO file
Network transfer 2.5GB files under load - Move 2.5GB of mixed size files (ranging from 1MB to 100MB) from test machine to NAS device while ripping DVD to .ISO file
Compress 100MB files - Using built-in ZIP compression
Compress 1GB files - Using built-in ZIP compression
Extract 100MB files - Using built-in ZIP compression
Extract 1GB files - Using built-in ZIP compression
Compress 100MB files under load - Using built-in ZIP compression while ripping DVD to .ISO file
Compress 1GB files under load - Using built-in ZIP compression while ripping DVD to .ISO file
Extract 100MB files under load - Using built-in ZIP compression while ripping DVD to .ISO file
Extract 1GB files under load - Using built-in ZIP compression while ripping DVD to .ISO file
Install Office 2007 - Ultimate version, from DVD
Open 10 page Word doc - Text only
Open 100 page Word doc - Text and images
Open simple Excel doc - Basic formatting
Open complex Excel doc - Including formula and charts
Burn DVD - Win 7 beta 1 .ISO to disc using CDBurnerXP
Open 10 page PDF - Text only, using latest Adobe Reader 8
Open 100 page PDF - Text and images, using latest Adobe Reader 8

These series of tests will pitch Windows 7 build 7057, 7048 (64-bit) and 7000 32/64-bit against Windows Vista SP1 32-bit and Windows XP SP3 32-bit.

The scoring

The scoring system that I use seems to have confused some readers. It’s actually very simple. We run each test for each OS in turn and the time taken to complete the task is noted (average of three runs). The fastest OS is given a score of 1, the runner ups 2, 3, 4, and respectively and the slowest OS scores a 6. The scores are added up and the OS with the lowest score (that is, the one that performed the best overall) at the end is the winner.


the result






to sum up , seems that on the hardware platforms that I’ve used that the 32-bit flavor of Windows 7 is faster than the Beta 1 build (significantly faster in some of the tests). Will this be true of the RC and RTM builds? Initially, I expect it to be the case unless you are throwing a lot of RAM and CPU at the OS. I suspect that the cause for this is immature drivers and that once we see an RC build vendors will put more effort into optimizing the drivers for both 32-bit and 64-bit.

While I appreciate your efforts to help us all understand what's going on. It means nothing if we can't see/read the data! (I'm talking about the graphics) way toooooooooo small.

Come on man... Think about it & test it...
