Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista couldn’t have arrived soon enough; this is only exacerbated after I realised that the “Hotfixes and Security Updates” document was 77 pages long. Microsoft generalises these improvements in its “Overview of Windows Vista Service Pack 1” document which details several sections under the broad compass of compatibility, reliability, security and performance.

So while it’s always worth installing the Service Pack for these other parts—especially security and reliability—but what cost or leverage do these other fixes have on performance?

Yesterday, we evaluated Windows Vista Service Pack 1 gaming performance and found that the improvements were small at best. In fact, in some cases, we found that performance was actually lower—by up to 10 percent—and that’s not good news for anyone that was waiting for “magical” improvements in Vista gaming performance.
