No end result to compare them against so I opted for a side by side comparison.

As you can see it’s practically exact the same performance as far as I can tell which is great, it’s also worth noting that Windows 10 loaded each different benchmark scene a lot faster which is very welcome!

Windows 8.1 – Driver Revision 353.38
Windows 10 (Build 10162 x64) – 353.30

Recorded with Nvidia Shadowplay

PC specs:
Intel i7 4770k@4GHz
MSI GTX970x2 (SLi disabled for single GPU Benchmarks)


  1. The problem with win 10 isnt that it doesn't run games, it's the fact that it fluctuates FPS like really badly. You can go from 10 to 100 in literaly seconds, and that happens quite a lot. While older version of windows stays stable even if the max FPS is lower.

  2. it would be nice if make a side by side comparison of latest 7 vs windows 10..cause most people are still on the legandary windows 7 like me haha 🙂 i would love to see a side by side comparison of far cry primal,just cause 3,batman arkham knight etc..

  3. Both run very well. I use Windows 10 anyways (it came with my laptop, I didn't upgrade from 7/8 to 10)
    Can my laptop run well with this game? I know I'm in minimum requirements, but at least tell me yes or no.

  4. For the future, will Windows 8.1 or 10 be my better bet? Making a new gaming PC, idk yet what to go with. Wanted to try something new from 7. If I go with 8, I can upgrade to 10 right?

  5. So windows 10 loaded GTA V faster than 8.1? FPS seemed to be very close with an added 2-4fps spikes above at times on some areas. The game itself could be far more optmized but iits ok. Also i notice its using more vram.
