What games gain performance boosts from Windows 8?

I see a lot of people around here saying that some games run up to 15% better on 8, which games are those exactly?

BF4 and supposedly future games that use DX11.1/DX11.2

Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!

The only game I tested that ran better on Windows 8 was Saints Row 2 (it has severe lag issues and timing issues on Windows 7).

Oh, and Far Cry 3 had some pop-in issues on W7 that where gone in W8, but the speed was the same on my PC.

the companies were just paid by m$ to make the games faulty in w7

or microsoft could release directx 11.1/11.2 for windows 7.

nothing prevents them from doing so..... except greed and arrogance.

Lets make windows users dance and WE will force them to dance like WE want - Microsoft.

Lets hope Valve/Linux will change the OS scene

I don't care, win8 is ridiculous. It's still not easy to use even with the 8.1 update (or 2012r2, whatev). It's crazy how difficult it is to get anything done.

I've outgrown my old quote. It's been there for years, but now it's gone.

Windows 8 is very easy to use and once you get used to some of the features, easily better than Windows 7.

Lies and ignorance. If anything, I can do almost all tasks just as fast or faster on windows 8.1 than a person could in windows 7.
