Windows 10 VS Windows 8.1 Gaming Performance Comparison

Windows 10 FULL Release VS Windows 8.1 on multiple different games & genres for a frame rate performance benchmark!

Please watch on a Computer or tablet as the frame rate isn't as visible as it should be on a smaller device! (Frame rate is in top left coloured yellow)

I tried to make the comparisons as similar as possible however in some cases this is rather difficult.

In no way am I favouring one OS over the other, I simply wanted to see if there was any performance differences between the two.

Every setting is exactly the same for each title played to give accuracy, and most games are on very high settings. Make your own judgements over the footage and FPS shown and let me know what you think!

In conclusion I would say there is a very slight increase in frames whilst using windows 10, however in some games It's barely noticeable.

One game that definitely saw benefits from Windows 10 is Project Cars, with a 10 - 15 increase in frames.
