Windows 10 is fast and stable but how it performs when compared to Windows 8.1 and Windows 7? Techspot ran some tests on all three fully updated fresh installed Windows operating systems.

 

Test system:

Intel Core i5-4670K (3.4GHz - 3.8GHz)
Asrock Z97 Extreme6
8GB DDR3-2400 RAM
Nvidia GeForce GTX 980
Crucial MX200 1TB
SilverStone Essential Gold 750w
Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
 
Boot Speed
Software used for measuring the time: BootRacer.

Hybrid Sleep Speed
Hybrid sleep is a combination of sleep and hibernate meant to prevent users from losing work in case of a power. Windows defaults to Hybrid Sleep on desktop PCs which is slower compared to Sleep feature in laptops.

Hibernate Speed
Hibernation results are similar to wake from sleep, as Hybrid Sleep was used.

Direct X 12 is a huge improvement. Wait for games to support it. And don't forget about the less power requirement of DirectX 12 games on Windows 10.

 

Check these two demos:

Windows 8.1 boots faster than Win 10? This is BS!
