More responsive Windows 7 by monsteer More responsive Windows 7 by monsteer
I recently discovered that by setting the "Maximum pre-rendered frames", in the Nvidia Control Panel, to zero (0) it is possible to improve the display performance in Windows 7.

After lowering this value which is by default set to 3, you should see smoother animations in Windows 7 and get an overall more responsive desktop environment.

I have an Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT card and by doing this I've improved the responsiveness of Windows 7.

Nvidia explains that the "Maximum pre-rendered frames" only works with DirectX games, however it does have an effect on the Desktop Window Manager (DWM) too.

it seems as though if it may have, aero actually is a bit more functional on 7 but i haven't tested it in gaming yet.

According to Nvidia the increase of the maximum number of pre-rendered frames leads to a smoother gameplay at low framerates.
