GTX480 is one power sucking monster

Review: Win XP 32-bit vs Win7 64-bit


This review is also available in German.




While Sanjin was busy checking out the performance of the new GTX 480 in Windows 7, some people like me were more interested in the performance differences between Windows XP in DX9 and Windows 7 with DX10/ DX11. Of course power consumption is also very important, especially in Europe where energy prices are high. One of the problems between AMD and Nvidia is the impossibility to compare higher Anti-Aliasing modes, because only Multi-Sampling between 2x and 8x are comparable and we have to stick with it.
