Windows Even though the EULA accompanying the beta build of Windows 7 prohibits the publication of benchmark results (good luck enforcing that one, Redmond), everybody and their dog will still compare the Windows 7 beta to Vista and Windows XP. Adrian Kingsley-Hughes is one of those benchmarking the beta, and according to his results, the Windows 7 beta beats both Vista and XP in just about every scenario.

There is insignificant evidence to show that here, since XP and Vista's scores are so close (61, 52 and 56, 57). Without the actual figures we don't know if, for instance, Vista beat XP by small amounts in the tests where it was faster, but XP beat Vista by large amounts in the tests where it was faster.

The conclusion that 7 is the fastest is mostly valid, since it was fastest in nearly every test.
