WEI only counts the primary card - it doesn't matter if you're running SLI or Crossfire.

WEI performance drops aren't unusual (usually it drops to 6.0) and actual performance isn't affected. For most, a re-run of the assessment is enough to get scores back to normal.

I'm rolling back to the 296.10 drivers.

EDIT: The rollback seems to have fixed it, the new drivers are very buggy, I read there is some "idle bug" or something. I'll be researching drivers before updating from now on.
I've been running these since they were in beta and I haven't noticed any bugs myself. My idle clocks are fine too, but I did recall reading some people experiencing some issues.

I guess you're one of the unlucky ones.

Smarty,

I used to have a single 560ti, I ran wei many many times with the card at stock settings and it would only reach 7.8

I recently added a 2nd 560ti and wei immediately changed to 7.9.

so wei must notice something with sli.

^ This!

My single GTX 560 Ti gives 7.8/7.8 with stock clocks or even with heavy O.C., so i guess SLI should do something (at least with 0.1 points) to the WEI

Same as paulpicks21 my single card was 7.8,after sli went to 7.9, and now after update I'm 7.7 (I have re-run it many times) Now I'm not saying it is hurting anything (that I've noticed so far) I also know that a WEI does not hold much ground to say what performance is. All I'm saying is that the update dropped my score. Will I roll back the Drivers...Not till I need to because of problems, If they arise.

The latest driver update was awesome for me. The partitions I use for Windows 7 and Vista have grown silent in the last few months because of my GPU problems, and even before this update I could not use hardware acceleration in FF or IE in Vista. These drivers seemed to improve the performance of my faulty GPU nevertheless

I didn't get BSOD but out of no where games like Modern Warefare 1 & 2, Borderlands and Hard Reset suddenly would not play without being choppy and very slow with mouse control even in the menu sections of a game.

I rolled back to 296.10 and all is well.

Very odd.

I had the latest drivers for a few weeks without problem and then....BLAH!

I'm nearing 100 posts. I'm gonna bake myself a cake

It's always advisable not to update your GPU drivers as soon as they come out, not until there is a bit of testing to them, assuming you're not into testing that kind of stuff. I usually get an email from nVidia informing me of new drivers, but I always let at least a week or two pass before updating just in case, unless the previous drivers were already giving me problems, and I'd rather "risk it"
