Tests show Windows 8 much faster than Windows 7

One thing you’ll like about Windows 8: Even though it’s only in its preview form, it’s already faster than Windows 7. And as development proceeds, it should only get even faster.

[PC World] ran Windows 7 and Windows 8 Consumer Preview on the same machine and found that Windows 8 was 14% faster than Windows 7 on the WorldBench 7, the magazine’s comprehensive performance benchmark. It also started up 35% faster, and was 50% faster when it comes to Web performance. Windows 8 lagged behind Windows 7 in an office productivity test by 8 percent, and was essentially tied with Windows 7 for a content creation test.
