Windows x64 gaming performance evaluated

— 11:00 AM on May 4, 2005

The cold, HardOCP has taken a look at gaming performance in the new 64-bit version of Windows XP Professional to see whether it makes sense for gamers to make the switch. They've tested a range of popular games with graphics cards from both ATI and NVIDIA, with an emphasis, as ever, on the gaming experience for the end user. Overall, the prospects look good.

If you'd like to see performance in games and a range of other apps compared between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of WinXP Pro using CPUs from both Intel and AMD, by the way, you can always read our article on the subject, as well.
