Service pack 1 installed and works

Written by Fuad Abazovic

SP1 V.668 works


One of our readers got the chance to install the much overhyped Service Pack 1 on his PC. He installed Service pack 1 v.668 and he got no performance increase in games. 3Dmark06 remained virtually the same, and this is something that we expected. The overclocked Q6600 with an overclocked 2900XT scored 12,362 with Service Pack 1 and 12,319 without it.

Our reader, Craig, said that it takes a long time to install, but at least the system works and it looks stable in the first hours of the Release Candidate of Service Pack 1. 

We just hope that Microsoft can now quiet our hard drive, as every once in a while it starts to heavily grind over the hard drive, and of course that is with the indexing turned off.

This is what it looks like.
