    Question: Render speeds, OS

    Has anyone benchmarked LW rendering, on identical systems, windows 7 vs Windows 10.

    I'm getting my 3950X ere long, which means I have to switch to Windows 10 (x570 chipset), which I HATE.

    I know how to hack Windows 7 into working, but there are disadvantages with that, and if Win 10 ain't slower (it reportedly was, at least in the early days) I'm not going to bother.



    NB: Not interested in comments about why I prefer Windows 7 - I am more computer literate than most.

    you can use a MSI B450M Bazooka V2.

    edit; hm, i see the 450 has the same problem.

    using Win7 myself.   


    but back to the benchmark.
    not sure, i've read it is about the same in most other apps. others might chime in.

    perhaps it is better to hack Win10 to work better/smarter, instead of hacking Win7. (Even tho' i love Win7)

    however, for Win10, beware of this stuff....  especially Forced Updates

    Given that you run a 3950X and the latest Win10 updates have task scheduling updates to specifically tackle how the Zen2 cores behave, I don't see any reason to use Win7 at all.

    Cheers,

    Win10 updates have task scheduling updates
    Some time back the guy in the video above experienced that even though he set Windows 10 not to update, it did it anyway.
    But hopefully that bug has been fixed.

    Exactly! By running Win7 today one might not be able to use latest technology and kernel updates that properly support the new CPUs. Some new applications don't even install on Win7 anymore. Other than the forced Windows updates I see no reason not to run Win10, it is a great OS.

    I use Win10 daily, and it is a piece of ****, for too many reasons to mention here.

    I'll probably just try both, and benchmark a render. Whichever one is the faster, wins.

    I am on Windows 7 Professional after just loathing the look and feel of Windows 10, but I am not too PC literate compared to others here, so even a nugget of insight why you hate Win 10 could be useful. And what do we do when Microsoft imminently drop Win 7 support ? Will there be an offline activatable Win 7 ?

    I've switched to W10 when it was released and never looked back.

    We have to live with the fact that Windows 7 is not going to be around forever. Support will stop. And applications will stop supporting the Windows 7 version.

    10 years on using Windows 7 is going to have a real problem running modern Apps.

    ...as I originally stated: I'm not interested in posts about why this or that.

    Only asking if anyone has any relevant performance comparisons.

    it would seem that lightwave renders slower in windows 10. the hub sync is also a known
    issue in win 10.
    not tried with compatibility mode. wonder if any better?
    btw, you can easily make win 10 look like win 7.
