    So this thread is dedicated to those willing to share their experiences with Windows 8 RTM, more importantly, its gaming performance.

    I've read in a couple of threads/forums out there that they are seeing improved framerates in Windows 8 vs Windows 7... On games like Battlefield 3, Metro 2033, etc, etc...

    Are you getting improved performance? worse? post it all here!

    Yeah this seems like the highest traffic section of this forum, the OS section is somewhat dead, so posting it there would have been a bad idea.

    Fair enough, I like to post surprise porn in here every now and then coz I feel not enough pc enthusiasts Google it for themselves.

    I am curious to see performance, but I just do not have any motivation to install windows 8 on any of my computers.

    Don't have personal experience, but there is an article comparing some games:

    http://tech.slashdot.org/story/12/08/15/2210232/windows-8-rtm-benchmarked

    looks like W7 and W8 are comparatively the same when it comes to games according to their findings. Might improve over time as the tech gets incoroporated better/newer drivers are released/ ...

    I was kinda not sure for the metro UI and now I like it.
    You just have to know how to use it at your advantage.


    anyway like it or not, the general performance of the OS is worth it. boot time with ssd is amazing.

    I can press the power button on my E1505 laptop with a Vertex 1 in it and be at the Metro start screen in ~12 seconds, so yeah. That's with the consumer preview though.

    I've been playing BF3 while running Windows 8 without any performance hit, or any problems at all.
