windows 7 computer preformance rating

before i upgraded i had a 5.3 on vista across the board i researched window 7 and it said that the rating was now 7.9 and your upgrade would not affect your computer assessment and gave an example of 2.9 in vista staying 2.9 in windows7 yet when i upgraded my assessment jumped to 6.4. sine ms said that wouldnt happen whats up???

Hi blair and welcome

WEI is just a number, it chages slightly every time it is run. I suspect that the 5.3 from vista is correct for there isnt a machine known to man that will score a 7.9 WEI accross the board. try rebooting and re-running wei. If you still think there is a problem check your video drivers, run chkdsk/f on the HD, etc

let us know the results

In my old vista sp2 i had 5.3. On windows 7 i have 6.4 across board. When i researched windows 7 upgrades the info said what your system is on vista it will stay the same on windows 7. But mine didnt even after i ran the test on windows 7 acouple of times. my points are still 1.1 higher on windows 7 then they were on vista.

Like Ken siad it's just a number, everyone knows to take the score with a grain of salt. Your system maybe getting a higher score just do to the way seven runs wei. Besides seven is a lighter version of Vista and doesnt run as many resourse so, I would just accept it and move on and enjoy seven. It's not anything that can be pin pointed as to why, and Microsoft has never said anything that didn't really be true now have they?? Jusy my opinion. Fabe

Changes every time it is run? Ummm, nope! Shouldn't do that. Not unless some hardware change occurred. Note that WEI disables any throttle down power saving features.

Hi blair. Do I know you from somewhere else? Perhaps a different blair.

Note that Vista and Windows 7 WEI have different scale caps. With Vista, 5.9 was the highest you could get. This ceiling was hit often as hardware technology advanced over the next couple years after Vista's release. Windows 7 is designed to take advantage of the new hardware advances since Vista so the ceiling was raised to 7.9. Your HW was probably always capable of 6.4, but was capped by Vista's 5.9 ceiling. It does not get a higher score because of how Windows 7 runs, as it runs the same way - only the cap has been changed.

We are already seeing some power users hitting the high 7s for graphics, CPU, and RAM. It is likely MS will raise the 7.9 ceiling again as hardware technologies improve.

HD performance currently caps at 5.9, unless using SSDs, or RAID0 with high-end drives. The cap for HDs may be changed sooner (I hope) because currently, if you have a nice 7200RPM drive with 32Mb buffer, you will hit 5.9. But if you have a 10,000RPM drive with a 32Mb buffer, you still only get 5.9. My HTPC with a 1.5Tb 5400RPM drive gets 5.9. Two 10K in RAID0 (striped) raises it a little - to low 6s. I have seen one WEI with 7.7 for the HD score, but he was using two SSDs in a RAID0 array.

Here's mine, and I don't have top of the line stuff.
