Windows 7 BETA vs Windows Vista SP1 SSD Performance Compared

Final Thoughts


Today we have provided a quick and simple look at SSD performance in Windows 7 BETA and Vista SP1. It is far from conclusive, we know, but it was only designed to be a quick look at the numbers so far and what users may be able to expect from a standard desktop system.


Based on our testing, we can see that obviously Microsoft have spent some time improving SSD performance under Windows 7, as it managed to beat out Vista in all but one test and that might have only been a slip up.


Access time is also very impressive under W7, but when it came to CPU usage we weren't really sure on just how well it fared here as it was consistently scoring -1% usage under every test, which as mentioned earlier is likely a compatibility error with HD Tune Pro that we will see resolved with an update down the track.


We hope you enjoyed the quick look at SSD performance under Windows 7 so far. We will be back with more at a later date as new drivers and so forth come out.
