Today I’d like to share with the readers about my first look about Windows 7 that already pre-Order with about $50 to upgrade from windows XP or Vista. Since Windows 7 into the pre-beta, Microsoft revealed a second lot about how Windows 7 will be better than the various versions of Windows earlier. In the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC), Microsoft explains how Windows 7 is designed to complete the boot / shutdown faster and consume less power than the Vista operating system even though they actually have the same foundation.
Windows 7 boot and shutdown faster is just one of many aspects of performance improvement which already promised by Steve Sinofsky. Microsoft can reach the boot time faster through a variety of ways:
- Reducing the number of system services
- Reduce power consumption CPU, hard disk (HD) and system memory required service
- Optimization drivers
- Starting some services and drivers in parallel
- Optimize prefetching for HD or SSD
Although we have previously discussed how Windows 7 will be more power efficient, WinHEC conference provides lebh detailed information about how Microsoft achieve this. Some of them are power consumption less when using a wireless network and some kernel optimization that allows the CPU to operate in lower frequencies and have a longer idle time. The end result is the battery life is better than 11% to 15% better than Vista – Windows 7 pre-beta, the final version would be even better.
