The Platform Update for Windows 7 enables improved features and performance on Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. It includes updates to the following DirectX components: Direct2D, DirectWrite, Direct3D, Windows Imaging Component (WIC), and Windows Advanced Rasterization Platform (WARP). In addition, there are updates to the Windows Animation Manager (WAM) , XPS Document API and the H.264 Video Decoder

Worth a benchmark i suppose.
