Posted on January 10, 2008, Chris Windows Vista Service Pack 1: What’s it Got?

vista.jpgVista was launched prematurely, most people would agree, and I know I’ve heard the sentiment many times that Vista officially launches once Service Pack 1 arrives. Longtime Vista users like myself are anxious to see what SP1 contains, and Tech ARP has all of the improvements and enhancements that SP1 will bring.

Something of immediate to note to gamers is support for Direct3D 10.1 (read: DirectX) which shouldn’t concern owners of DX10 cards. Other tidbits that jumped out at me while looking through the article included decreases in User Account Control prompts in certain areas and correct reporting of the amount of memory installed (what’s actually installed will be displayed instead of what’s available to the OS).

Hopefully what we’ll get with SP1 is an overall more smooth and less annoying Operating System. Wishful thinking, I know.
