The reason I ask is system cache should make a big improvement over programs. This is why server versions are fastest, syst cache is enabled by default. I did some runs and with large system cache tweak XP is def faster then W7.

W7
32m - 6.316
1024m - 195.720

XP w/ LSC tweak
32m - 6.124
1024m - 192.484

Sucks Ive been wasting seconds for ages lol

Sheesh! Now I can't wait to get home! I bet it would have helped in UCBench too, eh? What about the single-threaded benches?

LSC is a common tweak for single threaded benches like PI, I just didnt realize it applied to wprime as well.

For those that are running wprime in XP here is the tweak:

Copy the below into wordpad and save the file as LSC.reg. Then click the file and reg tweaks will be applied.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer]
"AlwaysUnloadDLL"="1"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\desktop]
"AutoEndTasks"="1"
"HungAppTimeout"="5000"
"MenuShowDelay"="400"
"WaitToKillAppTimeout"="4000"
"WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="4000"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\FileSystem]
"NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation"=dword:00000001
"NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management]
"DisablePagingExecutive"=dword:00000001
"LargeSystemCache"=dword:00000001
"ClearPageFileAtShutdown"=1


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters]
"EnableSuperfetch"=dword:00000001
"EnablePrefetcher"=dword:00000003

Can't you just switch from programs mode to system cache mode in the Performance Settings tab?

Yes, you can put it appears this registry addition also does a couple of other things that are said to gain you some extra time, like kill the Superfetch and Pre-Fetch. I usually move it system cache but haven't seen too much improvement using this type of registry addition and there is some debate on the usefulness but its been awhile since I played with it. Will try this tonight.

DT - You can yes but this gives a few extra perf tweaks. Give it a try, run program mode, then try syst cache setting manually and then apply this reg tweak. Best result for PI and wprime should be with the reg tweak.

What do the NTFS tweaks do? Outside of system cache, they look like the only ones that I don't already have implemented.
