x86 vs. x64: Graphic drivers reviewed
Ist es wirklich langsamer, unter 64-Bit zu spielen? Oder ist der Unterschied schon so gering, dass Sie ruhig auf die neue Technik setzen können? PCGH.de macht mit drei Spielen den Test.
Nvidia as well as AMD offer 64 bit drivers for their graphics cards. To see who did the better work we checked the Catalyst 8.4 as well as the Forceware 174.74 on Windows XP (32 bit), Windows Vista 32 bit and Windows Vista 64 bit.
Result: Windows XP is indeed the fastest operating system in the test, but the differences between XP and Vista as well as between the 32 bit and 63 bit version are noticeably smaller with AMD than with Nvidia. It seems AMD worked harder in the driver department and solved some problems, because there are no technical reasons why the 64 bit version should be slower than the 32 bit version.
