It was a rash generalization. In some benchmarks that simply measure 'throughput' as I like to call it, generally 3dmark/sandrasoft type benchmarks, and in some cases, older games that are generally very high in FPS like FEAR/HL2/UT3 etc... XP is faster. You will see things like Vista 140FPS, XP 160 FPS. Yes, XP has more FPS but you'll never notice it. Then you bench XP vs Vista in games with much ore intense graphics, and the results are very similar.I don't get where you're coming from with the statement that "XP probably has 400 FPS" where vista and win7 have 300 and 315. Did you read the OPs benchmarks, Vista gets more FPS than XP... Or am I misunderstanding you?
