Elevating User Experience Through GPU Acceleration

A Windows 10 versus Windows 7 Analysis

As businesses continue to migrate from Windows 7 to Windows 10, IT professionals must identify and address performance differences between the two operating systems. A growing area of concern among our customers has been end-user graphics requirements. This topic has come up enough that we were inspired to do a more detailed investigation on the graphical differences between Windows 7 and Windows 10. We speculated that, as application and OS developers continue to enrich the user experience by creating software with more robust graphical experiences, we'd find evidence of this improvement in our community data. However, without adequate graphics processing hardware, there is a possibility that increased graphics demands could negatively affect key performance metrics. With this dilemma in mind, we set out to examine our clients’ graphical experiences when upgrading to Windows 10 through analysis of data derived from SysTrack Community.
