The exact same CPU now scores 3,1 for me, memory scores the same. It was 4,9 in the 7100 RC.

So, Something Is Rotten in the State of Denmark.

Bah...
Why would you worry about a number...
They are there ONLY to make you think you have a slow configuration!
No other use!
Besides if its annoying you just modify it:Fun Stuff! Hack your Windows Experience Index (WEI) score - UnlockForUs

It's not the number I'm worried about. It could be a sign that something is wrong with the W7-7600 drivers for the Intel's 945PM chipset. That's why I called it in.

I can get the correct numbers, but only when I run the CPU test separately.

...or WEI is a stupid peace of marketing s**t...


sry for the expression...

I have one of the fastest HDD on market and its still has a rating of 5.9(Max for a HDD ) -they just say:
"BUY A SDD - GIVE US MONEY $$$!"


I know how much is my comp strong (or weak) not MS!

Ignore it-if its stabile and as same fast it OK

OK - let's do this again.

I don't care what the number is! It's the fact that it changed from Vista and RC (4,9) to 3,1 in RTM that I don't like . This is the retail version, I was a beta tester and if something is not quite right, they should know about it.

If the newest Intel's(!) drivers are installed and the score stays the same is't because:
1. WEI has a bug or
2. Your mobo/CPU don't like each other

Ignore the WEI score. Either your machine operates smoothly or it does not.

You are correct in your analysis that something is amiss. It is most likely a driver issue, but it may also be related to a change in power requirements in Windows 7 (my personal unproven theory). Nonetheless, it is not a problem with a discernable affect for 99% of all users. Until such time as a problem presents itself - do not worry about it.

If you must worry, use a professional benchmarking tool and do not rely on WEI - a low grade tool at best.

A WEI score cannot be fixed. A problem can be.

Are you guys running 32-bit or 64-bit?

I have found out that this problem has unfortunate real-life consequences. I'm unable to watch TV in Media Center or any other application due to too high CPU usage.

Also, although they are watchable, watching HiDef mkv files also uses too much CPU.
