  1. over 9 thousand
  2. No one reallys knows yet, i do know there is a Windows 8 Preview out today, if you good for it you may find a link to find out....
  3. I heard WEI will be discontinued in favor of elapsed time for the quarter mile.
  4. I have the preview installed and my lowest is my HDD (my SSD is taken up with W7) and my highest went to the RAM which got 9.3 so I wanted to know how far I am from the best performance. WEI is not definite but it is a good indicator.

    WEI is not a good indicator at all...

    It isn't even consistent with itself. Different runs can return drastically different scores. The best way to decide what you need is still to look at the hardware requirements for your software and make sure you meet or exceed them.
  6. The WEI is for instant gratification, and also to encourage upgrades of your 'weakest link.'

  7. Wise is correct. I like looking at my WEI score and knowing it is way better than %90 of people out there. There is no other use for it though.
  8. WEI was/is intended to give participating software developers a standard number to use when recommending system requirements for their products. As a general benchmark it is useless.
  9. Best answer
    WEI in the W8 CP is on a scale of 1 to 9.9
