Vista vs XP

Here another Vista versus XP review. This review's results are quite different from the usual ones we get:

the hardware:

dual quad-core Penryn HP xw8600 PC with workstation-class NVidia Quadro FX 4600 graphics, all eight processor cores running at 3.16GHz, a 15,000rpm SAS hard drive and 4GB of RAM

the results:

their conclusion:
  • on this kind of hardware, Vista is faster than XP
  • except for network copy and HD speed
  • this results are somehow amplified on Vista SP1
The test doesn't mention if they were playing with 32 or 64 bit versions. Let's wait for the results over XP SP3, and for a proper solution for the disk access and network copy.
