Windows 8 Faster Than Windows 7 at Almost Everything

Windows 8 Faster Than Windows 7 at Almost Everything

It looks like Windows 8 is going to play very well with upcoming Ultrabooks.

Our favorite tips and tricks website, Lifehacker, conducted a non-benchmark test of the highly anticipated Microsoft operating system and came up with some pretty fascinating figures.

Their test machine runs an Intel Core i7 (3.8GHz), 6GB RAM, 2TB HDD and an Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT.

The most interesting figure in the test was how Windows 8 dramatically improves boot-up times.

Windows 7 takes around 35 seconds to get from Windows screen to desktop, while Windows 8 takes less than half the amount of time, at 10 seconds  -- from a regular hard disk no less.

Meanwhile at HardwareZone, we're also testing out a developer's preview on a laptop, and we'll make sure that you readers will be able to read our thoughts on it as soon as possible, so keep a lookout for it.
