    Windows 7 SP1 Will Improves System Performence

    According to one of the recent posts on Softpedia, Windows 7’s first service pack may bring some more performance to the table as Softpedia cites a “third-party source.” Although Microsoft has stated that SP1 will contain nothing more than some minor fixes, the Redmond giant has been known to deny facts only to confirm them publicly later on.

    As for the article, it discusses a potential performance boost to BitLocker, a disk encryption feature initially introduced with Windows Vista. It protects entire volumes through encryption, only available in the Enterprise and Ultimate editions of both Windows Vista and Windows 7; however, the latest version with Windows 7 allows BitLocker to also encrypt removable drives. Softpedia links to TechARP as the source that mentions performance improvements to this particular application.

    Nonetheless, BitLocker is not alone as Softpedia pointed out that the same website also discussed performance improvements related to storage, but without any specific details. A move like this could help make Windows 7 more efficient for power users who handle a large amount of files, Windows file servers, and much more. Read/write speeds could also be improved.

    Remember though, even if Microsoft has changed its stance before, the software company has also done the exact opposite. On the WindowsSteamBlog, it was indeed said that SP1 would really only contain minor updates:
    For Windows 7, SP1 includes only minor updates, among which are previous updates that are already delivered through Windows Update. SP1 for Windows 7 will, however, deliver an updated Remote Desktop client that takes advantage of RemoteFX introduced in the server-side with SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2.

    Only time will reveal the secrets of SP1, so for now, let’s sit back and see whether or not SP1 will just be another update or something quite interesting.
