Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
A look at Windows Vista's I/O Perforamance - A look at Windows Vista's I/O Perforamance
Fri, September 21 2007 | 9:52AM | PermaLink Feedback?

The boys at APH Networks play around with the A-DATA PD 17 1GB USB flash drive. TechReport talks about Intel's upcoming Penryn and Skulltrail processors. Hardware Zone has an IDF Fall Update and finally Tech Hounds talks about Vista's I/O performance.

Nearly 10 months after its released, Windows Vista's adoption rate is still pretty low, particularly compared to Windows XP. Of course, XP has quite of a lead over Vista - it's been the default choice for many users for several years now. As for the reason, well, it's actually nothing we didn't expect from Microsoft and their products. Keeping in tradition to other previous versions of Windows, Vista needs quite a hefty system to be able to run smoothly. You'll definitely NEED at least 1 GB of RAM and a DirectX 9 graphics card to enjoy what Vista has to offer. At least - if you really want to get your work done in Vista smoothly, prepare to get at least 2 GB of RAM and a dual core processor - it's that power hungry. With that kind of a machine, Windows XP is blazing fast - no wonder users prefer to stick to Windows XP..
