    Laptop actually has a GTX 770M, but due to using Optimus it only bases scores off the Intel HD 4600.

    Strangely high score for a HDD, especially a 5400 RPM drive. I thought mechanical drives topped out t 5.9 like they did in Windows 7?

    Out of Box vs SSD install


    I purchased the new HP Envy 17 with dual 750GB drives. I took out the boot drive and replaced it with an Intel 520 SSD and the WEI speaks for itself. People aren't kidding when they say once you go SSD you never go back!

    Not too shabby! The disk rating went from a 5.9 up to an 8.1 instantly! Now if only I could get the Geforce to be recognized instead of the Intel GPU.

    Very weird.

    I have the same Intel HD 4600, but mine scores lower on graphics, and higher on gaming graphics.

    Not sure why that'd be. Only difference I can see is my display driver shows up as 9.18.10.3165 as opposed to yours which has 9.18.10.3071

    You guys have the same Intel HD 4600 but do you also have the same CPU and amount of RAM?

    The Intel GPU is integrated in the CPU and shares RAM memory with the CPU. For example I got a HD 4000 and has just 32MB dedicated memory while it can access more than 1.5GB from RAM. Even though the 4600 is newer, the dedicated memory size isn't that big also (I'm guessing between 32 - 64MB) but the RAM sharing still exists.

    So IMO the amount of RAM and CPU power will have an impact on the Intel GPU scores, still to be entirely confirmed. I switched from 8GB RAM to 16GB RAM and it didn't helped: GPU scores the same, the shared memory reported was still the same (1.5GB) since 8GB was more than enough and the CPU is the same (same speeds, specs and scores).

    Probably if you jump from 2GB to 4GB or to 8GB RAM upgrade helps the Intel GPU scores a bit but this cannot be tested too much these days since 8GB or more is most likely in factory installed (GFX scores the maximum points already).

    The same HD 4600 can be found on more CPU's so the CPU must be the one cause of different scores.
    If you both have the same CPU then I will find the differences also weird then.
