Windows Experience Index of 5.9?

    I never really cared about the Windows Experience Index but today I ran it and got a 5.5. My video card gets a 5.9 and I see that 5.9 is the highest you can get (why not 6.0?)

    Anyway, does anyone here have an overall score of 5.9?
    Does any machine rate that high yet?

    I get also 5.9 for Aero. It's easy to get that. My notebook is over 2 years old. My overal rating is 4.0 because the CPU is slower... not the core architecture.

    Ya, one part can bring the whole score down.
    I have an E6700 so I get a 5.5 for processor.

    Processor - 5.3
    RAM- 5.5
    Graphics - 5.9
    Gaming Graphics - 5.9
    Primary Hard Drive - 5.9

    Is it wrong that I want to upgrade my RAM and Processor? Embarassed

    I have 5.9 in everything but CPU, which is 5.5 (an E6750)

    the-laughing-man and dentaku, you have identical scores, yes?

    I doubt that, he has an E6750 and I'm on an E6600, and my lowest is 5.3!

    Why not 7.0? Tongue Out They have to draw the line somewhere until they rate newer hardware.

    Just out of interest, DCMonkey, how much RAM do you have?

    Yes but where you gain in Primary Disk he gains in CPU, and it all balances out, if you're with me.

    I'm still thinking theres a conspiracy where nothing is good enough and you keep going out to buy more and more stuff trying to get 5.9 Smiley

    Did you flawlessly executed a triple lutz? Technically not required, but practically impossible to get a 6.0 without one.

    That's not quite how it works from what I understood, Lloyd, it's just the lowest link in the chain is your score.

    So he'd have 5.5 and because my lowest is 5.3 my score is 5.3, it doesn't really average out.

    Confused.


    That's a really rubbish scoring system.

    Well not really, if you have a relatively crap CPU and an amazing graphics card then it doesn't mean you'll be able to run every game perfectly does it?

    Crysis on an E4300 CPU with a 8800GTX Graphics Card would be rather painful so your worst part is gonna slow you down the most.

    Not really. This isn't test scores. A PC's overall performance tends to be dominated by the slowest component. The Windows Experience Index reflects that.
