Well I've been working on my article for Windows 7 x64 vs Vista x64 on my new Quad-Core budget PC that I built for some home gaming, and I just started doing the benchmarks for Windows 7 in overclocked form. I must say... I'm extremely surprised that I'm not seeing the same results that everyone else is seeing.
I thought that when I was doing the comparison at stock speeds, I would see a bigger difference once I overclocked, but even now, it is pretty much the same and even slower in some cases.
If I had to take a guess as to what is going on, I'd say that there are still some driver issues to be worked out. The parts are all pretty new parts, but I was able to install all of the drivers in Windows 7 without a problem.
Anyways, it looks like I might end up choosing Vista to run on my home PC. I'm itchin to start playing some CS:S, Crysis and World in Conflict.
Check out the article I just finished... It's a HOWTO on installing and configuring Windows 7 x64 in VMWare Fusion, which is VMWare's workstation product for Mac OS X.
I've had it running on my 8-Core Mac Pro for a little while now
It's been a while since my last blog about the Mac, and everything has been going great! I decided to take advantage of the falling prices of RAM, and upgraded to 16GB, which is the max that this Mac can take. I don't think I should have any issues now! The WinTec ram was no longer available from Newegg, so I ended up purchasing Transcend. No issues with it, so I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an upgrade to their Mac Pro.
I also decided to backup my system and do a clean install of Leopard (OS 10.5). After a few months now of using Leopard, I've been very pleased with it. Everything runs great, and most, if not all, issues that I've had have been resolved!
