    Here is my Win 8 WEI (its 7.6 in Win 7 for the same hardware). The Video card is a Sapphire HD7770.

    MB purchase date 6/1/2010, old hardware
    Evga SR-2
    Two 6 core XEON CPUs Overclocked to 4446MHz, HT off, stopped here because WEI score was not increasing.
    Memory 12 Gigs OCZ Gold 2000 10 10 10 30
    Two Evga 680 4GB in SLI
    Latest EVGA Video Card Drivers 310.61
    3D settings at Maximum Performance
    Using Precision X, set power target to 124%
    Windows 8 Optimized for performance
    Corsair SSD 180 GIG Force GT, Optimized
    SSD using old Windows 7 driver, no Windows 8 Controller driver yet, so should go up to about 8.2.
    Power Supply BFG 1200
    Air Cooled with two Noctua D-14s
    Home Made Lexan Tech Station
    I got the same score with one 680 Video card as I did with two 680s in sli, no change in score
    I got the same score at 12 x 4446 MHz as I did with about 12 x 4100 MHz, no change in score as I went up in overclock
    Lots of nice rigs posted here.
    I have YouTube videos with this system, they are running chess programs, old.
    I am ready for another build.
    Maybe 2 x 10 overclocked or 2 x 8 overclocked.
    Windows 8 runs fine for me, no bugs so far.
    Merry Christmas to all my Computer Geek friends and as for the normal people here---you have a good day too.

    Unfortunately, I'm under the impression that anyone with higher than an 8.3 for graphics has hacked their WEI (considering the 7970 Matrix Platinum only gets an 8.3 and it is the fastest single GPU card on the market).

    I guess in theory it's plausible that someone might have more than a 9.0 with processor, considering the Xeon and Extreme editions.

    Moving my RAM from 1600MHz to 2400MHz only increased the score from 7.8 to 8.1.
    My i5-3570K is overclocked to 4.4GHz and manages an 8.0, barely (4.2 is only a 7.9).
    My Solid-State Drive was only getting 7.9s until I used the Samsung Magician to optimize it, at which point it got an 8.0 also.
    My graphics card is a Radeon HD 7950, which achieves 8.1 in both graphics categories -- I'm under the impression that MOST high-end graphics cards will only achieve an 8.1.

    A GTX690 WILL NOT ACHIEVE HIGHER THAN 8.1 (due to GTX680 lightning edition only getting an 8.1 and the WEI running only off single GPUs).

    Anyway, here are my results. I am very pleased with them and, to be honest, I think anyone with a 9.0 or above in the graphics card area is just being stupid (unless perhaps Quadro's get higher performance? I'm not sure). You would need a HELL of an SSD to get above 8.5. You would need an incredible CPU (such as dual six-cores overclocked at 4.1GHz) to even get a 9.1.

    RAM is a bit tricky; I think Microsoft leans more toward certain makes and models of RAM rather than the actual RAM speeds -- Some RAM models at 2000MHz achieve the same or better than some RAM at 2400MHz.

    Ok, I'm not very computer savvy compared to everyone in here, but I thought my brand new computer would score a bit better than it did and the Display Adapter Type listed says Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000, but I know there's a NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M 2GB GDDR5 as well. It's the first time I bought something more than a crappy E Machine on my own and frankly I thought for what I spent it would score a bit better. Is there a way to improve the scores? Did the 32GB SSD help this score at all?

    Hi, gang- 1st post & new to Win8. Got a new Dell 17R with the i73630QM, 8GB 5400 DDR3 & an Nvidia 650M 2GB DDR5. The HDD seems to be the weak point, & I may look into an SSD to tune it up a bit. Still going through a few growing pains with this new OS, and look forward to getting tips from all of you.

    Hey, I just noticed the WEI didn't notice the Nvidia card & instead graded the intregrated HD 4000.

    Finally found a combination that would raise the cpu score.
