    I had to refresh my Windows 8 install and left the drivers the install used for my GTX 590 suddenly the score for my card went to 7.4 so I am not sure now whether to load latest drivers.

    Interesting

    That's a new grephics card. Wait until nVidia releases Win8 drivers.

    The Win7 drivers are WDDM 1.1 and the Win8 drivers are WDDM 1.2 and that probably makes the difference.

    Keep the standard driver for a while if it's better.

    Cheers

    I could not help myself I had to reinstall the latest Nvidia drivers and now my WEI score has dropped to 5.9 thanks to my desktop performance for windows aero score.

    My 3D Gaming graphics score also dropped to 6.7 .... definitely need Nvidia to develop Windows 8 drivers.

    Nvidia drivers site already have added Windows 8 to the dropdown os option-list. The same package includes Vista , 7 and 8 drivers. The latest still needs some improvement as we are only in beta stage.

    Hi there
    Anybody got a 9 or even an 8.5 yet (or is this a "Conspiracy theory" -- if you can build a rig with that score you are being recruited for a job at a gaming company, Nasa, the CIA or Ms !!).

    From what I've seen of the scores

    Memory maxes at 8 -- probably the Mobo can't handle a faster memory rate
    SSD's up the Disk performance significantly -- most non SSD users seem to have an average of around 5.9 but even an SSD only takes it up to 8.2 -- again this is probably a Mobo limitation.

    I would also have thought that the top level I7 Intel Processor CPU would have given a result nearer 8,5 or even 9 -- again I guessing that the Mobo is now the limitation rather than the components being measured.

    Any "White Coated / Engineer / Physics" guys who can give decent comments on this sort of stuff.

    Thanks.

    Dude, this Windows 8 "Customer Preview" is only a Beta. We're not gonna see fully baked & ready-to-go nVidia drivers for Windows 8 until around the time the first retail versions of the OS hits the shelves...probably around the middle of this summer (2012).
