WOW… giLE2D Windows 8.1 Performance

by on Oct.18, 2013, under giLE2D Dev

I really don’t care much for Windows 8, call me old fashioned, I don’t.

"Call Me Old-Fashioned..."

“Call Me Old-Fashioned…”

BUT…but… my preliminary testing on Windows 8.1 (code name “Blue”… ooohhh secret) has proved to me that its a major step forward!

giLE2D loads a “tad” slower on my test 8.1 system (which is the lowest end spec laptop I have, see below), but its much more sturdy!

The AGK frameworks for giLE2D run brilliantly, and the editor itself feels slick and natural!

Hopefully I will have some real performance metrics to show you this coming weekend. I am glad we decided to hold back release in order to test on a low spec, 8.1 machine.

System requirements will be updated at the end of the test run.


Gateway NV52L15u Laptop
AMD Quad Core A8-4500M @ 1.9 GHz
500 Gb HDD (SATA 2)
AMD Radeon HD 7640G Mobile (shared memory with system RAM, yeuch!)

Puny test system is a puny! Runs giLE2D nicely, though!
