Windows 7 Build 7077 Due Today/Tonight

Recommended Posts

that is not a w7 bug. it's related to nvidia drivers. you have to disable powermizer in order to make aero smooth.

wierd, never needed that on vista..but gonna give it a go :)

@lee26, it is no way it is hardware related. As I said, I have a brand new quadcore rig with geforce 260 and 8 gb ram(hope to see 7077 64-bit leaked soon)...and Vista runs smoother than smooth.

And yeah I know I can turn the animation off, but that takes away the "feeling" if ya know what I mean.

exactly. use either powermizer switch http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/index....showtopic=21782 or NV GPU Pro http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?p=4718176 disable on AC, this "bug" goes away.

@vask -- more people aren't "voicing" their annoyance because most people aren't having the issue.

ironically, it is actually intended, and is a powersaving use that is far better than the vista power saving was capable of being.

As I said earlier, this happens on all manner of cards, both laptop and desktop. It happens on intel's 4500mhd with power savings turned off and it happens on a dektop nvidia 8800gts as well as an ati's 4850 (happens with vista and win7 drivers). This is a win7 bug, as vista aero is perfectly smooth on all those cards.

I really like this new build, but there is STILL the jerkiness\lag in the animations when opening or closing windows or programs. Annoying for sure.

I do not experience that anywhere and never have on any build. Maybe it is your hardware.

Try to compare just the window close animation in vista and win7 and u will notice a slight pause in the middle of the animation.

+1, never had that problem and my system is way less than par this day and age. Dual P4/1Gig Ram/Nvid 6600.

Did anyone find a solution for the following?

I've tested several different graphic drivers for my 8600M GT, but it seems like it's not related to the graphics...

Rumor has it that the public release of Windows 7 by Microsoft will be released tomorrow 4.10.2009. Both flavors.

Im still using 7068 x64, but one bug I've just found while checking out the mentioned glitches in the windows animations is on my taskbar I have firefox and msn messenger next to each other, both running, but msn doesnt have any windows open.When I click firefox to open and close twice, it opens a window in msn i.e. the main contacts list.

I can't see any noticable pausing or glitches in the animation, and I'm only using a 4500mhd with 3gb ram so I dont know why other people are getting it, but I was wondering if anyone else has problems with other programs opening when clicking an icon on the taskbar?

Everyone hold your mouth in a smirky position until it gets released one way or another. ;)

Simple points are.

1) If a person runs a x86 on 3.25GB+ of ram. They are a) They can afford to waste money on unused RAM. b) If they have no idea what the difference is. Even then, it's strange because if they WHINE about not seeing 3.25GB+ Used then anybody will tell them why. C) They are pure n00bs and need to learn.

The only people that should be running x86 is 3 small groups of people

1) People with Netbooks

2) People with 3+ year old computers

3) People that don't know what their doing, yet again.

And I already countered one of your points.

Your 1st statement is totally false and shows how full of yourself you are.

I run x86 w/ 4GB because I choose to and to a, b, c : none apply

1, 2, 3 : none apply to me either

I wonder what the "e" stands for in your e-peen persona.

This would be highly unusual. Microsoft releases beta's, RC's, and RTM products to Connect/Technet/MSDN first, followed by a public release days or even weeks later.

you highly all the avg points but didn't say anything to the dead one points? Com'on.

So you like not being able to use more then 2GB per app?

Anyways, You guys need to stop having acting like this, having maturity issues and being naive about the pluses and minuses of 32/64bit OSes. It's not helping the discussion of the thread.

Whats with the x86 / x64 war going on here. Seriously

There are valid reasons for running both. Do we need to personally attack each other for our choice in architecture? :s

Just because windows x86 cannot display more than 3. MB of memory does not mean it cannot use more than 3 MB of memory. Before the flaming started, all facts should have been known. Carry on.

How about

4) People with 2 GB of RAM (more details below)

5) People that use apps that only play nice in 32-bit (Sandboxie being one example)

About 4. I tried out the 64-bit build of Vista on my desktop. Oddly enough I got a couple of instances where I'd get a low memory error while running TF2. It doesn't always happen, but on the few instances it does it really brings my entire system to a halt. Despite the performance gains in x64 there is clearly a bit of an increased memory footprint per app - 32 or 64 bit.

I'm all for increased market penetation of 64-bit operating systems, don't get me wrong. But the way I see some of your attitudes towards 32-bit builds - including all this nonsense whining about WHAT NO LEAKED 64-BIT BUILD? THEN GTFO is really annoying.

As another poster said, you and I shouldn't have your hands on these builds to begin with, so show some gratitude please...

I didn't say that

Also, Even if they use 2GB ram. There is noticeable performance increase in x64 based apps and games. Even if the app isn't 32bit. There can still be a very very small performance increase.

What apps do you know that don't work in 64bit OSes that are in 32bit?

Also, I knew TF2 had a x64 issue awhile ago. But it was a known issue that was valve's fault. But I play TF2 often on 2fort2furious on x64 just fine. If you try x64 again and still have that issue. Let me know and if you could log the console. That way I can see what went wrong.
