    Windows 7 Home Premium x64 (tried Windows 8.1, non-starter)

    Windows 8 x64 WEI Score, Toshiba Satellite laptop, i5-2410M, 8 GB RAM

    Here's my Win8 x64 score:

    Click image for larger version

    Both graphics scores hit 6.3 in Windows 7, intel HD3000 drivers for Win 8 x64 not yet optimal.

    I have an OCZ Vertex3 120 GB SATA3 SSD that scores 7.9 in Windows 7, currently testing Win 8 with Hitachi 320 GB spinner.

    So far, my metrics show Windows 8 x64 to be about 12 - 15% faster than Windows 7 x64 in MFLOPS and integer performance, and the thread scheduler is much more efficient and smooth than in Win 7. My i5-2410's fourth "virtual" HT core has finally reported for duty, and is pulling its weight.

    Running World of Warcraft Cataclysm 64 bit client, 1366 x 768 x 32 bit, high detail/eye candy, getting around 48 - 65 fps in crowded areas (disable vsync!). Works like a charm.

    Also, getting about the same fps in Eve Online Crucible at same resolution. Zero issues, runs great.

    Only downsides, so far: No OpenGL support at all (intel has probably completely bailed on it?), so no Quake2/Quake3 or Really Slick OpenGL screensavers.

    Desktop Composition / Flip3D is gone (not a big deal).

    Overall, I'm very impressed with the performance of Windows 8, and can't wait for the final retail release - even if I'm stuck back in the keyboard-mouse dark ages. No touch/swipe for me!

    W8CP running under VMware Player : its clunky as heck....not the best way to experiment with W8CP. Wonder if its time to attempt a boot under VHD (host is W7 Ultimate x64)? What do you reckon?

    Ran the assessment, and here is my score. I expected it to be lower than my Win 7 because I installed Win 8 on a secondary drive, Win 7 on a SSD.

    Looks like I've got some work to do on my video, and my Core I7 Extreme Processor seems to be slacker these days. Oh well, time to tell the wife I NEED A NEW COMPUTER...wish me luck on that one!

    It only uses one core - what drivers are you using?
