Windows 7 bumps up Experience Index

"Windows 7 bumps up the Experience Index

After nearly a week of using the pre-beta PDC release of Windows 7, Iím starting to notice the little things. Like this:

Windows 7 Experience Index

See that number in the lower right corner? In Windows Vista, the maximum value for any subscore is 5.9. Clearly the scale is now higher, as that 6.3 (solid-state drives are fast) indicates."

If youíre running the pre-beta Windows 7 build, share your Windows Experience Index scores.

When I installed the beta yesterday, it went up from 4.3 to a whopping 4.4

now that I've re-installed the beta again it's gone back to 4.3 :)

Confused... My graphics index rating in Vista (Home Premium) was at least a 3.5... I installed Win7 tonight and it's dropped to a 2.7, yet gaming graphics is still way up at 5.3...
Huh?

Your lowest sub-score determines what your overall is. To me the scores mean very little as its more a 'show-off-too-your-computer-friends' feature.

WEI is nothing but a number. Scores can be easilly edited via XML file modification. Stores like BestBuy or Costco edit these scores to make the computer seem powerful. The scores represent nothing and have no accuracy whatsoever in determining a computer's performance.

These numbers should be disregarded.

My computer gives me a 7.2 in Windows 7 Ultimate and a 6.9 in Windows 7 Professional, a 6.2 in Windows Vista Ultimate and a 5.9 in Windows Vista Home Premium. Just an example of how useless these numbers are.
