Benchmark Results – XP Tablet vs Vista on the OQO

Benchmark Results – XP Tablet vs Vista on the OQO

The testing was done on a OQO version 02 1.5Ghz with 1GB RAM loaded with Tablet XP Service Pack 2 or Vista Business (fresh installs), or Vista after being tweaked with Vispa to enhance performance by eliminating unneeded services & features.

Each OS was run under the benchmark using one of three states:

  1. Nothing running … OS only (first 3 columns)
  2. Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 9 Medical Professional (running, but in mike OFF mode)
  3. Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 9 Medical Professional (running, in microphone ON mode, but without any transcription being done….just idling and listening for speech to happen)

Benchmarking was done using PassMark(TM) PerformanceTest 6.1 http://www.passmark.com

Overall PassMark Rating
(Higher is better)

138.8 101.3 126.7 136.9 113.5 105.6 92.7
Platform Tested Tablet XP SP2 Vista Business [optimized with Vispa] Vista Business [normal] Tablet XP SP2 ( Dragon mike off ) Tablet XP SP2 ( Dragon listening ) Vista Business [normal] (Dragon mike off ) Vista Business [normal] ( Dragon listening )

  Vista is smoked by Tablet XP when stressed.  

Under no-load conditions (see leftmost three columns), Vista Business is almost up to XP (5% slower).   The Vispa ‘optimization’ software actually hurt Vista’s performance…..so out it goes!  

XP Tablet SP2 ended up being 20% higher in the benchmark than Vista Business under both conditions (mike off or on) tested when Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 9 Professional Medical was running.

  1. […] In general, Windows XP or Windows XP tablet edition shows better benchmark performance than Vista.  This advantage is maintained regardless of whether Dragon is running in a standby inactive state (not listening), or in an active state (listening).   Optimizing Vista with the “Vispa” version 0.1.1 utility had little effect on results.  Benchmarking was done using PassMark(TM) PerformanceTest 6.1 http://www.passmark.com: Benchmark Results (GIF) Benchmark Results (webpage) […]
