    A good point touched on, how do the OpenGL games perform? Is there a noticeable slowdown?

    doom 3 (GL) performs. hl2ep1 (d3d) does not

    i suppose the real test is trying a game with multiple renderers, like far cry or ut2004

    I thought I read somewhere that ATI we're doing Vista OpenGL yet? Would make it graphic card dependant as much as anything else..

    Interesting that you're testing x64 builds too.. WinXP x64 isn't the most game-friendly OS.. Just wondered if 32bit vista does any better.

    EDIT: I note that OpenGL actually sits on top of DirectX in Vista - meaning big performance drops and a limited set of features unless ATI or nVidia provide their own integrated implementation..

    possibly. interestingly, vista x64 seems happier than xp x64 about installing games (e.g. vampire doesn't install in x64 xp)

    EDIT: I note that OpenGL actually sits on top of DirectX in Vista - meaning big performance drops and a limited set of features unless ATI or nVidia provide their own integrated implementation..
    shouldn't make a significant difference, if done properly - those of us who play windows direct3d games in linux on opengl often get near-native performance, depending on the game

    I agree - but unfortunately this is just another opertunity for MS to push DirectX to the fore - and I can't see them turning down the chance That said, there's good reason to go with DirectX 10 for desktop rendering as Vista's design means no penalties for context switching as on XP (hence why windowed games run slower and alt-tabing from full screen ones takes time). MS' primary goal will be to ensure DX9 stuff works as-well-as XP and that DX10 is faster (which it well should be from what i've seen of the architectural changes).

    Hmmm, now that someone mentioned xp64 isn't game friendly it would be nice to have a similar list for it. Maybe it already exists - then a linky will be appreciated.

    I am thinking of upgrading at some point reasonably soon. But was thinking that it may be worth waiting for vista as my rig still seems to cope with most games (even if not in high detail). Was considering getting xp64, but with vista possibly coming it may be a good idea to wait.

    i'm far too lazy to re-do my list

    but generally speaking, take the list above, change all "performs: no" to "performs: yes" and mark every tenth game or so as uninstallable

    Well, Vista is finally here and has been for about a month now. Think its time to resurrect Directhex's ecellent thread for further testing purposes.

    I have Vista 64 bit ultimate installed and will be trying a few games out over the coming weeks / months. I'm using Catalyst 7.2 and onboard Realtek HD audio now (See my spec for the rest! ). so lets start testing again !!!

    Broken Sword : Sleeping Dragon. Installs fine and runs once you enable XP SP2 compatability mode. Logic 3 gamepad also works fine. Installed into the games folder.

    Warcraft 3. Once again installed great but I had to enable the XP compatability mode again to get it running. Also installed into the games folder. Doesn't appear to be running using hardware also. Looks like it is in software mode and resolution keeps dropping back to 640x480.

    Riddick : EFBB. Installed with no trouble but after playing for about 10 mins locked up when I picked up a pack of smokes. Mouse pointer appeared and I had to close it with the task manager. Will look into this one further. It did install into games folder.
