Tests Show SSD to be Faster on Windows 8.1, 10 than Windows 7
A couple of recent hardware tests prove that the Solid State Drives are indeed faster in Windows 8.1 as it was previously assumed. Not over the previous Windows 8 edition but when compared to Windows 7. Read to find out more.
According to some hardware testing performed by Myce.com, it seems that Windows 8.1 is faster in data throughput on Solid State Disks (SSDs) than Windows 7 is. Results on Windows 8.1 are on all occasions 3 MB/s to 4 MB/s higher than the same hardware speed tests on Windows 7. You will find below the graph with results from several SSDs. Here’s what else was said regarding this discovery:
The reason why it’s faster is unknown, it wouldn’t be surprising if Microsoft made optimisations to its latest operating system but the company has not disclosed any information on what was internally changed for disk operations. The differences were discovered during the development of the third version of our Myce Reality Suite of tests. A range of tests made from real everyday applications and real data, there are no simulated tests and everything is in the real world. The only thing that’s synthetic is that everything is automated to make the tests fair, no matter which drive the tests are run on.
I can confirm myself that the SSD is much faster on my Windows 8.1 desktop than it is on my previous Windows 7 laptop. But, of course, let’s not overlook the obvious fact that the Solid State Drives are also newer and come with several improvements, but Myce did include in the above graph older versions, as well. What is you personal experience with this?
