As you can see the performance nearly halves when switching to a higher resolution. This is expected, as it has more work to do. The CPU performance stays the same near enough. It is surprising to me that the Vista CPU performance outdoes the XP performance. The video performance shows the exact opposite.
I guess the graphics card drivers need some more performance tweaking under Vista.
