Recently, ATI announced that its monthly driver updates will include Windows 7 drivers, well ahead of Win7’s release. Nvidia just released new, better Win7 drivers this month, and promises more improvements to come. So where exactly are we at today, and how far do these two graphics giants have to go to make Windows 7 a better choice than Vista for gamers? it’s clear that ATI is well ahead of Nvidia at this moment in time. It’s rare that ATI’s current cards run a game slower in Windows 7, and when they do the difference is slight. More importantly, there are lots of situations where Windows 7 is actually 5–10% faster than Vista.
