Windows 7: Low RAM score

Low RAM score

Guys, what's wrong with RAM's score? In previous builds was OK (7.x)...
It's DDR3 1333.

Welcome to Seven Forums!!

Tell me something ... before we get into WEI .. are you satisfied with how your system is performing?? Do you have a specific problem that we can address???

No, it's quick in general. I don't see any difference from the time who it had normal score.

Totally disreguard WEI... it has little to no practical use, other than as a marketing tool, and certainly not as a trouble shooting tool, as you have now discovered... You are happy with your performance, and thats what counts .. not a number!

Score results from earlier versions nothwithstanding, it is reasonable to conclude that your score is 5.9 because you only have 3GB. WEI gives a preference to quantity over quality of RAM.

Outside of any marketing considerations, the WEI score reflects how well your system should support the version of Windows 7 that you have installed. You have a 64-bit version with less than 6GB (on the i7 processor).

Your score is appropriate.

Xmm, that's it! Two builds before I had 32bit and it was 7.5-7.6. In RTM I installed 64bit (who eat a little more ram).

They have been adjusting the WEI system from build to build.

Basically your RAM performance has stayed the same throughout - how the WEI calculates and what rating it receives has not.

As others have mentioned, the WEI is essentially useless

Thank you. That is absolutely correct. I really wish that Microsoft would have left that out of Vista and Windows 7. For most people who buy a prebuilt system...their components will be working and no problem. For those, who build their own computers...they are going to run their own benchmark utilities, so the WEI is really pointless.
