Base Score = 5.5

ProcessorIntel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8500 @ 3.16GHz = 6.4
Memory (RAM)3.00 GB = 5.5
GraphicsATI Radeon HD 3870 (Prerelease - WDDM 1.1) = 7.9
Gaming graphics1790 MB Total available graphics memory = 6.3
Primary hard disk104GB Free (180GB Total) = 5.9

Hmm interesting enough mine is only a 2.9. This is on a Dual Core 3.16 w/4g RAM running Win7 64bit. Graphics card is a Gforce 8800 GT x 2 (SLI). Whats ironic is my iMac which has a slower processor and only 2g RAM gets a 5.0. Go figure.

Here is mine..... It is crappy low because of the 7200rpm HDD as my C drive. Soon to be replaced with either SSD or 15000rpm:D.

In my lappy running Vista Business, I get 2.5
In my desky running Windows 7 RC 7100, I get 1.0. due to onboard graphics, which driver is not supported.
There is a way to increase the score by changing the values in the XML. And I was told, when the rating increases, some of the feature gets unlocked. dunno if it is true.

For everyones amusement:
You all may noticed in the Windows Seven if your RAM limit is less than 3GB then your score is always limited to 5.5!!! ( see the xml mentioned below) So whether you have DDR3 RAM or buy cheap cheap, it will not make any difference!
There's a way to hack it:
Go to C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\Datastore
and choose the XML file with the latest date, open it with word and change these values:
Change the x.x between the <> and </> to whatever you want (not more than 7.9) .

In the previous folder (Winsat) you will see the movies they use to produce the data.

I tried Vista on this laptop and it was a slow pig. But what a difference with Windows 7. Totally usable, even with the Aero enabled. I'm not going back.


Im using

Ram : 4G
PCIE Graphic: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series
HDD: 860G
OS Build : 7201

Well, after doing another video card swap, I got my overall score to go up. However, it wasn't without any sacrifices. On the bright side, I can actually play games at slightly higher detail settings or get a better frame rate with lower settings. At least I understand that a 4350 isn't necessarily better than a 3650 (600 Mhz core clock vs. 725 Mhz core clock).
