Windows 8 Feature Wish List Item: Intelligent WEI Scores

Quote:

The Windows Experience Index score is bound to evolve in Windows 8, just as it was the case with the boost it received in Windows 7 compared to Windows Vista, and this is an excellent chance for Microsoft to do much more than just go to a fresh, higher mark and account for new hardware hitting the market.

It’s an opportunity to perhaps introduce intelligent WEI scores for users of the next major version of Windows.

As far as I’m concerned, having a Windows feature that assesses the hardware and produces a score offering users insight on just how powerful their computer really is, should be only a part of Intelligent WEI scores.

Let’s look at the de description the Redmond company is providing for the Windows Experience Index: “Ever wonder how a PC you own—or want to buy—stacks up against others? The Windows Experience Index is one way to find out.

“This feature, updated for Windows 7, rates the performance of key hardware components such as the CPU, disk drive, and graphics card. The PC is then given a score between 1.0 and 7.9.

Interesting article, subgroups with more defined tests/scores for those that want them may be an interesting approach.

I dont know anybody who bought a computer based on its WEI score. Purchase decisions and comparisons are almost always based on known specs and hardware benchmark tests. WEI is just bragging rights.
