Windows 7: Help with Desktop Graphics Score

Help with Desktop Graphics Score

I have a decent machine with dual 5770s in Crossfire and my performance rating is usually around 7.3 for everything except for my hard drive which is only a 5.8. I saw that the score was grayed out today and needed refreshing, so I did that and my Gaming Graphics score went up to 7.4 but my Desktop Graphics score (for aero) went down to a ridiculous 2.4!

I disabled Aero, restarted, reran the entire assessment, and the Desktop Graphics score went up to 4.7 but I can't get it any higher than that! Gaming Graphics is still at 7.4, so this doesn't make much sense to me

I have the latest drivers for everything and before I update video drivers, I use DriverSweeper to remove EVERYTHING, so I doubt it's leftover files after an update that are causing the issue.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be glad to try them. I just think its ridiculous that my lowest AND highest scores come from my video cards

That is strange iget i 6.7 using my HD4670.

Is crossfire enabled?

Btw you do know that windows expeirence score is pretty much useless? only if you get a drop in real world performance would i be worried, for example low frame rates in games.

It's ridiculous, but I've seen it in the past.

I have no idea why, but I got low WEI numbers with ATI drivers, while getting normal numbers with other benchmarks.

If your real graphic performance appears to be normal, I suggest ignoring the WEI.

Okay I'll just ignore it because I still get great performance in games. Idk if you'd know anything about this, but when playing Just Cause 2 with Crossfire enabled, I get major tearing in a solid line across the screen where the two video cards' rendering meets. This is even with forcing V-Sync. Any reason why this would happen? It doesn't seem to do it in other games :/
