Default Better performance with W7 over XP SP3 with my old ATI Radeon 4870 video card?

Hello.

http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=...1&cid=43844741

Is it true that I will get better performance, especially with computer
games, with my old ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB) on my quad core
i7 950 system?

Thank you in advance.

I used to play Trainz, and on Win 7 (32 bit) it was smooth but on XP it
wasn't.
