The official roll-out of windows 10 is approaching and the 'Get Windows 10 ' notification has appeared on many Samsung notebooks. However, is it safe to proceed?
Windows 8 / 8.1 caused a lot a grief for both Samsung and the owners of Samsung notebooks. Have lessons been learned regarding Windows 10?
Given that many of the potential problem areas are likely to be generic across the range of Samsung notebooks it is probably advantageous to bring together all the Samsung + Windows 10 discussion into one place so I am starting this new thread. A few posts from other threads to keep this ball rolling: Please post more links. BTW, I am personally likely to first try Windows 10 on my Dell E7440. It is more likely to have propper driver support and, if Windows 10 doesn't fix a sleep issue I've been having then Windows 7 will need to be reinstalled. I've installed the Windows 10 preview a couple days ago on my NP700Z5A-S04DE (from 2011 I think?) and I thought I'd share my experience. I must say that I had much fewer problems than expected (and than I had when upgrading to 8.1 - damn, that was a fight). I didn't bother installing any of the drivers provided by Samsung since almost everything was running smooth from the start.
The only thing I installed was the Smart Settings software, which, by the way, starts much faster than it ever did on Windows 8/8.1 and all the options I needed so far seem to be working (incl. Keyboard backlight). I didn't install the SSD software, since I didn't feel like it was working properly on Windows 8.1. Then I tested the gaming performance. So far I've only tried League of Legends and AC Rogue and in both games the framerate is much lower than it was before, on Win 8.1. Even lowering the graphics settings didn't help. After investigating a bit, I noticed that the GPU load on the AMD gpu almost never goes above 30%.
