    So Windows 10 have memory standby bug and Fullscreen Optimization.
    And Windows 8.1 doesn't have that.

    What OS is best for gaming?
     
  2. It also features numerous bugs, lots of pre-installed stuff, removes your documents without asking, badly made dark mode (except on LTSC but still)
    Meanwhile 8.1 is faster, eats less ram, doesn't have any preinstalled stuff (if you take embedded pro/enterprise) 0 bugs whatsoever.

    It's mosly user-preference, but I prefer 8.1 because you can easily block updates and have better control over 10.
    Both are a good choice for gaming i'd say.

    Ive got 8.1 Embedded Enterprise installed on Coffee Lake so im automatically blocked from receiving updates(unless i use the zeffy patch) and no soppy apps.
     
  4. Skylake for me, just at the limit ;)
    But I disable them right after i get net 4.7.2, some audio drivers and android fastboot driver

    If you take in mind that a Win8.1 32bit modified iso can boot with 230mb of ram in a VM (64bit 300mb)....you understand how modular and light can be.
    In Windows10 is impossibile go down 400mb ram or there is something too big or for now tools arent able too, still if you have a recent pc you can run a lite win10 iso without complain, with 4years pc i can understand the choice of a win8.1 lite iso for take the maximum from hardware.

    On the DirecTX or functions Win8.1 and Win10 should perform the same and also if win10 has some improvement, the lighter Win8.1 will still perform on pair with it.
     
  8. Not Blue or Threshold xor Redstone perhaps so 21H1 ;)

    For the games that are not so heavy lately, Windows 10 is more convenient for me.

    PD, games in free time.

    Windows 10 is a bit slower in my experience, on a slower PC. Maybe it's all that TM that is processing inside the CPU! And apps as well.

    Windows 10, although there wasn't much competition for anything modern.
    *After you take the time to remove all the bloatware, services, cortana, auto-everything....
