Windows 7: Latest Intel HD4000 drivers drops WEI score

Latest Intel HD4000 drivers drops WEI score

I'm using the integrated video in an i7 3770 CPU, the Intel HD4000 graphics.
The original Intel driver supplied by the motherboard vendor, gives a Windows Experience Index score of 6.5 for both Graphics and Gaming Graphics.

I did a driver scan from Intel and it showed there was a newer video driver available. I installed the latest video driver and the WEI score for both Video items dropped to 5.8/5.9. I reinstalled the older driver and the WEI score was back to 6.5.

isn't the first time this happens. WEI graphic score measure how well Aero runs. As anything else isn't concerned with how well Aero runs, they shouldn't be affected.
