Upgraded to 8.1, graphics and gaming WEI score dropped out

  1. #11


    That's the only benchmark I have and it didn't change much with Windows 8.1. As far as the graphics go, I really dont know what to do about the low WEI ...Looks like I wont be able to do anything about it. I am thinking it is not the fault of the computer but rather something to do with 8.1 .
    I have an i7 3740QM and 64 bit Windows.

    Nice score on that Sammy, but it's only disk benchmark. There are many benchmarking programs with which you can compare the scores with others with similar systems. You can start with this free benchmark for CPU, GPU and overall scores. MAXON | 3D FOR THE REAL WORLD: Overview

    I am somewhat of a novice at these things but am willing to learn..I downloaded the Maxon and ran the 2 tests I could find..One was Open GL and I had a 55.77fps and the CPU was 627 cb. I don't know if these are good or bad for a notebook.
    Thanks CountMike.

    Why do you think Microsoft stopped using WEI?

    I have no clue other than another guy here had his graphics WEI numbers take a dive when he installed 8.1 and maybe Microsoft doesn't want to try to explain it.

    They dropped it because it was pointless. Maybe I have 4.4 or 5.9 or 7.8. What does it mean?

    It means nothing. Microsoft decided it was pointless and dropped it. I suggest you do also.

    Didn't exactly drop it, just hid it from users. It's still used internally during installation to determine automatic settings for GUI.

    Now the Graphics Memory Sizing is being done by Win 8/8.1 and not by Intel drivers.

    Hi dodgeman21,

    For the record, my WEI graphic scores also dropped a bit when I went to 8.1. Everyone participating in this thread has offered some good advice (in one form or another) so, if all is well otherwise, I'd just ignore the difference (like I'm doing).


    Cheers friend,
