Default Vista vs. XP in Crysis Performance

Hello all. Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm doing a review of the Inno3D 8800GT right now. Now that we have the final release of Crysis in our hands, I wanted to incorporate the performance of Crysis with this new card in both XP and Vista.

I don't want this to start a flame war, but here are some quick results after playing all afternoon with equal time spent in both OS's. DX9 is tested in both OS's.

Vista:
All High Settings
169.09 BETA Drivers
Specs Below
1680x1050

AVG FPS: 20FPS

XP:
All High Settings
169.09 BETA Drivers
Specs Below
1680x1050

AVG FPS: 36FPS

What gives? I've really had to set the Vista settings down to medium and it still was choppy and laggy, hence the low FPS. In XP, the game boots up ultra fast and I get no lags or hiccups with 36FPS.

I will have an entire page devoted to Crysis performance since it is the hottest PC title this year. It will be way more in depth but I just wanted to share with you my results from this afternoon.

Please keep things civil, I just wanted to bring this to everyone's attention.
