    ut3 and windows 7

    hey guys, i have a few pcs that i was thinking about upgrading to windows 7. now mostly the pcs are used for gaming,mainly ut3 and left for dead. i was wondering how ut3 is running on the new operating system? you guys getting the same frames per second? any issues with ut3 at all? see i play a lot of ut3 on a vista machine and it runs great,so im sceptical about upgrading, but i just bought a asus laptop with 7 on it and i love it,it is a big difference over vista,although i have not run ut3 on it. on my desktop pcs 4 of em have vista and one has xp, i just would like everything on the home network running on the same os,especially with the crazy price on windows 7 3 user pack sellers are offering, but at the same time i dont want to sacrifice my performance in ut3...? what do ya think?

      Not sure I would define a 1 FPS gain as 'notable' tbh...

          For me, it has been on par with Windows XP for gaming.
          I tested w7 for awhile before i dropped XP all together, XP was only good for gaming and with w7 being as good at gaming as XP, i have had no reason to look back

            Read the XP version link in that benchmark post. 30-40% fps loss against XP with a non ultra high end machine.

              dont expect miracles. i have had nothing but trouble with win 7, i reckon if you are on a quad or above you'll be fine but core 2 dont seem too happy though some people have been fine with them
              have a look at these 2 posts

                If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

                win 7 is just vista fixed, so the problems people had switching to vista may still exist in win7. Problems from almost 2 years ago like the needing the --onethread fix seem to be still there.

                      rofl!....vista & windows7 are perfect if u have a Powerfull PC; on "slow" mashines XP is the good one

                      and on UT3 2% more or less isnt a big change but ...WTF with COD results ?....30 % losen from vista to w7......omg.......looks like a joke!

                        I wouldn't expect Win 7 to be any faster with what are essentially old DX9 titles, games like UT3 could be improved performance wise by making changes like these . On a like for like basis, DX9 vs DX11, the fully optimized DX11 game and its feature set should clearly leave DX9 way behind in terms of fps performance, it's just down to whether devs use that potential or not.

                          I found this info at Tomshardware.com about WIN 7 vs XP

                          Thank to frozenlead for the info and his comments.

                          XP still beats WIN 7


                          Conclusion from frozenlead
                          Those who have older machines and were clinging to the hope that 7 might improve your one last time - forget it. In my case, at least, the software and just isn't there - the new OS resulted in massive performance losses. Whether or not newer hardware will show the same I've still yet to find (see my other thread), so who to blame for the performance loss is a little unkown right now. It could be bad AGP drivers (which are notoriously so) or just as likely be the new OS. I'll update after the other test on newer hardware is complete!

                            Thanks Doz, I'll be looking for the new hardware results... running shista 64 now, UT3 maxed out at about 25-30 fps, waiting to see if I should "upgrade".
