Anyone install yet and is it really 3X faster than SP2?
This update also includes a small number of new functionalities, which do not significantly change customersâ experience with the operating system. This white paper summarizes what is new in Windows XP SP3.
I think the 3X claim was for certain Office application functions, certainly not overall.
I'll be doing a full format and installing SP3 integrated, just waiting for Firefox 3 to go final.
Heard it will be available to the public within a week. The SD boys can get it now and so I guess there are sites where you could snag a copy.
I've had it for about 3-4 months. Haven't noticed anything really. Don't use office much so I can't compare.
One thing I know is the software for Intel motherboards won't work with SP3 yet. So you can't use the Intel Desktop Control Center where you can control fan speed and overclocking.
I believe the claim was "10% faster", right? I saw a report on SP3 vs. SP2 on some gaming frame rates... some games were a frame or two faster, others a frame or two slower.
Yes, I've installed on several machines - no problems.
No its not 3X faster and I haven't seen anyone claim that it would be, like Gnome said, 10% faster (at most).
