    Windows 10 System Resources Efficiency?


    Just wondering if Windows 10 has even better resource management such as CPU, memory and even hard disk usage than that of Windows 8.1?

    Upon upgrading to Windows 8.1 from using Windows 7 on and off, I noticed some improvements made on Windows 8.1 memory usage, CPU efficiency and even overall hard disk speed.

    The improvements in Windows 8.1 were not massive by any means but it's there for those who look/monitor their system resources and care about these things.

    I heard Windows 10 takes CPU usage efficiency even further but I've not heard anything about improvements made to memory usage/management in Windows 10 since Windows 10 memory requirements are exactly the same as Windows 8.1/8/7.

    I can only offer subjective feelings, but it seems to improve on Windows 8.1 Enterprise trial in terms of CPU load - see:
