Final Thoughts

 

It was extremely surprising to see just how well Windows 7 VGA performance is coming along. With that said, there are still issues. Initially I wanted to test with the GTX 295, but 3DMark06, Far Cry 2 and PT Boats all crashed.

 

If SLI was disabled on the card, though, there wasn't an issue. It doesn't comes as any real surprise that SLI is showing troubles under Windows 7 as it's still showing troubles under Vista at certain times.

 

Performance is great, though; the increase under Vantage in its Performance preset is interesting and shows some real potential with future driver releases along with RC versions and the retail release of the operating system.

 

It's great to see Windows 7 VGA performance coming along so well. There's no doubt that the issues that are present at the moment are going to be fixed by the time we have a full release.

 

No doubt as we see major graphics card driver releases along with major updates to Windows 7, we will re-visit performance. But so far, it's looking pretty good.
