The most important killer feature of Windows 7 is intelligence


The key trait of each item is the main reason for its preference: for the software industry, it is the essential high-performance and advanced technology that allows users to send their hard-earned money to software vendors, only to improve Experience.

For Windows, some versions do have this killer trait. Windows 3.1 is a killer version because it makes the computer break the 640KB memory limit. Windows NT is a killer version because it introduces the concept of a C/S (client/server) architecture and introduces hardware-based memory protection in the environment.

Windows XP is because it builds a bridge between individual users (Windows 9x) and corporate users (Windows NT) and becomes a killer version. Although Windows Vista is not a killer version, it has played a role in driving Windows XP forward, which has shaken people's perception of the Windows model.

At this point, I can throw a point: Windows 7 is a killer version - but the reason is not what you think. Not because it fixes a lot of bugs in Windows Vista, it's not because of its contribution to the aesthetics of the interface.

Also not because of the latest UI design it uses. Although I am a fan of Windows 7's latest taskbar driver interface, I always think that this is just a "learning" concept of the Mac. The same is not because of the lightness of Windows 7 compared to Windows Vista - the test results show that running the same workload, the RAM usage of the two is almost the same.

The most important killer feature of Windows 7 is actually intelligence. In short, it is much better at using the available hardware resources than its predecessors, and it has a good performance even in the face of complex, multi-process, multi-threaded workloads. Assuming that you have the same number of processors, Windows 7 does better than Windows Vista and Windows XP. It tests on HP Z800 workstations with dual quad-core Xeons. The results show that the performance gap between them is very large: in one more In the process workflow test, Windows 7 is about 250% faster than Windows XP.

This is the killer trait of Windows 7. This also means that as users invest more in computer hardware, by using Windows 7 as the operating system with these hardware, they can more exploit the potential of processors, memory and chipsets. That is to say, if you still stick to Windows XP, it seems to be due to its low-key and relatively stable performance, but in fact it is not wise.

Time has passed, the status quo of hardware is very different from the Windows XP era. At the time, the idea of ​​multi-core processors was only a "concept". Windows XP was also designed for single-core processors. Multiple processors work occasionally on distributed workstations, but the degree of intelligence is far less complicated than the current one. Core i7 or Xeon 55xx series processors. Currently, Windows 7 is the operating system that should match the smart processor. If Microsoft is looking for a promotional slogan for Windows 7, I can give a suggestion that Windows 7 is really smart.
