Windows 7: Windows Experience Index lower than in Vista?

Windows Experience Index lower than in Vista?

Hi, my WEI in Vista was 5.9 across the board. Now, in Windows 7 Beta, my Hard Drive speed is down to 2.9!!

It's RAID, so I'm sure it's got to be over 5.9.

Anyone else experience this?

Thanks!

my desktop test box is fine, my laptop (toshiba satellite a200) reports respectable index scores across the board except for the hard disk transfer rate which drops me down to 2.0. despite this, the performance on the machine compared to original installed vista is phenominal. i think the index reporting criteria are subjective since the issues with the drive in device manager affect operation not at all. so yeah, my score is down from the vista index but performance across the board except for file transfer speeds are significantly better on this unit.
