Despite the fact that both operating systems use the same base architecture, Windows 8 was designed to manage resources more efficiently. Some hardware features were at their debut when Windows 7 was released, so developers couldn’t optimize Windows 7 to take full advantage of them. Windows 8, however, is better optimized for today’s hardware, being able to push it to its real potential.
