  1. I don't really get what you're asking. You have a 4.5 score because that's the value given by Microsoft to whatever your score was on their benchmark test. If you're asking because you think that's low, then I'd say that's about right as the 8670m isn't that good.
  2. Yes i m asking because i think its low but I am not talking about gaming graphics score but the desktop graphic performance score.Previously i had a dell inspiron with same configurations but it had a desktop graphic performance score of 5.9.The question is why 2 laptops with same configuration have different scores?
  3. What were the specs of your Dell laptop?
  4. i5-1st generation
    4 GB DDR3
    1 GB ATI RADEON hd 5450
    hardisk-500 GB
    windows 7
  5. are you comparing a laptop to a desktop, because if you are then the desktop is obviously going to have more performance
  6. Windows 8 uses a different scale to windows 7. The windows 8 scale goes higher, meaning if you had the exact same system, your score on windows 8 would be lower than it would on windows 7. Nothing is wrong, that's just the way they do it now.
  7. no dean both are laptops
  8. yeah benji i know that windows 8 uses a different scale than windows 7.I read that the scores differ by factor of 0.1 to 0.6 in windows 7 and windows 8 but here the difference is 1.4,that's why i m asking
  9. what do u say benjii?

    have u check that your laptop is using the intel integrated graphic?
  11. yes its using Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000

    yes its using Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000


    So meaning to say the rating is for the intel hd 4000 instead of the amd card.
  13. yeah
  14. Amol2deep said:
    yeah


    switch to the amd card and you should have a higher rating.there should be an option to switch between the integrated and dedicated card
  15. Its because the HD 4000 Is not a very good card. I would say its about 4.5 but the 8670mm is much better and should get around 5.0 - 5.5
  16. i have also 8670M amd .. its not good .. even it is peace oof shit ... and my processer in i5 4th gen 1.6ghz and intel graphic and amd .. please any one have solution tell me
  17. I have ASUS K55VD-SX378H. My system score is 4.4 because of Graphics. My graphics score is 4.4. I don´t know why, because I have nVidia GeForce 660M 2 GB. Why have I so small score?

    Processor - Intel Pentium 2.40 Ghz
    Ram - 4 GB DDR3
    HDD - 500 GB
    WIN 8 64 bit
