Is game run better on windows 8 or windows 8.1 with the 340.52 driver ?
i prefered windows 2008 r2 to runing games very faster but 2012 r2 very good too
Windows 8.1 Update 1. Ha, life has been defeated.
update 1 has better perfomance than 8.1.0
Windows server 2003 ! :nerd:
Well, Windows 8.1/U1 has broken 3DVision with SLi on many games when Vsync is enabled, leading to crap framerates.
So I'd say Windows 8.
Apart from that, performances are pretty much the same without 3D enabled.
anyone have benchmarks to comparisons? because always users says with windows 8.1 have more performance but in all benchs shows same or worse than windows 7 except in bf4 and splinter cell blacklist... unique two games in dx11.2 yet
This is a bit of a redundant question for most people because they'll be playing games and using the drivers on whatever version of Windows 8 they'll have installed. I can't see many people bothering to roll back just to test whether a driver runs 1 FPS higher...or not!
Besides, why would Windows 8.1 run worse than Windows 8 anyway? At a guess I'd say Windows 8.1 is likely to have more optimisations than the older Windows 8 and therefore inclined to run better but, at worse, I'd expect it to run exactly the same. In other words, there is no reason not to install Windows 8.1 and Update 1 if you're using Windows 8. IMO.
I read that windows 8.1 had more bugs then windows 8 for game. That's why i am asking the peoples here at guru3d was is their experience. Thank you for your response it help understand better the situation. :banana:
Since you won´t get updates on 8, isnt this point moot?
Win 8.1 is perfect. Win 8 was a bit more problematic.
I don't know from where did you get this information, 8.1 runs games prerfectley, i havnt seen a single problem with a game, that had something to do with 8.1
Windows 8.1 64Bit is the perfect gaming platform!
yer im gaming on 8.1 and its a great gaming O/S imo , i prefer it over 7 any day now that i've got use to it , i wouldn't want to go back to 7 for all the tea in china.
Also i haven't had any problems with software or hardware ,and haven't had a to a fresh install of 8.1 since i installed over 8 months ago .
No more updates for Win 8? Where did you get that from?
Microsoft has stated this a long time ago. You will only recieve updates for win 8.1
MS didn't state that. MS stated that Windows8.1 (pre-U1) would no longer receive updates, but Windows8 would.
So how come I still get updates on Patch Tuesday and various other ones (e.g. IE Flash ActiveX) throughout the month for W8 Pro x64?
I was reading on a forum that was talking on the difference on windows 8 and 8.1. So i wanted to verified with all of you to clarified the situation. Thank's again for your response.
I would love to try Win 8, but this Win 7 install is just rock solid at the moment.
I would assume the latest is always the best route, if not, stay with Win 7.
I dream of sugar plum fairies & Win 8 without metro. Windows 8 Home Basic Light Version for Whiners.
If I'm not mistaken Update 1 is a bigger optimization over 8.1 than 8.1 is over 8.
Dude, you have a 3770k. You could run ClassicShell with 0 latency if Metro bothers you so much. And 8 is where the performance is, especially in threading.
