    Default Vista X86 Ultimate Power Saver vs. High Performance in gaming.

    Edit: Im not going to talk much in this thread.

    Purpose of this thread: High performance in Vista vs. Power saving mode. Comparison between frames per second. (To see how much the system benefits from high performance mode)

    Hypothesis: Power Saving mode should be around x2 - x3 as weaker as high performance mode. But, what about some games that may be the other way around?

    Tested on a:
    2.33Ghz T7600
    2Gig 667Mhz RAM
    Vista Ultimate X86
    100GB HDD @ 7200rpm
    17inch External None Widescreen Monitor (1280x1024 Max)
    And... nVidia GeForce 7400 (128MB Dedicated + 128MB Shared)
    (Driver Version 167.43) -> www.laptopvideo2go.com

    F.E.A.R. (frames per second is in the bottom right)

    Settings:






    F.E.A.R. Looking Up: (79fps - high, 25fps - low) -> Big Difference!
    (Power Saver):


    (High Performance):


    F.E.A.R. Condemned Hallway: (34fps - high vs. 12fps - low) 2.83x Difference
    (Power Saver):


    (High Performance):


    F.E.A.R. Explosion:
    (Power Saver):

    Halo

    The difference is the cpu here, your crippling it with the power saver mode. Just use performance mode. Im not sure why you would compare gaming against your 100% system vs. 50% system? were you expecting some different results?
