Hey I had a question, my Intel SSD performs great and I have absolutely no problem with it's performance other than the slightly lower than advertised read speeds. My question is, my Windows Experience Index scores are low for a SSD. My SSD only gets a score of 5.9 in the index. Here's a picture of the HDTune so you can see exactly the read thoroughput and the windows experience tab. This has just been eating away at me as of late. Any suggestions? Is it the only 70 MB/s write speed? That's still hella fast tho.

Maybe its both testing speed and looking at the capacity of the drive. While the speeds should be very high, the capacity is somewhat limited and maybe thats why the score isn't higher. But i must admit i don't know what MS bases their numbers on.

That does seem low - my G2 gets over 7 in the brief tests I've done so far. The HDtune plot looks fine though.

Well like I said, ofc it really doesn't matter, but after a while, it kinda chips away at you. Like Windows is mocking my SSD. lolol sad really but don't pretend you don't know where im coming from xD

Partially because Win7 has SSD optimizations, but in order for them to be on, it must detect the drive as being an SSD.

I have two vertex 60g. in raid 0 , I score 7.4 on that measure, believe it or not the lowest part of that score is coming from my gtx295... What a strange world

I think it might be based on the amount of free disk space left on the drive.

Mine scores a 7.1 - the low is my 4870x2 quadfire. My guess would be that it doesn't account for CF/SLI.

My G1 gets 7.2.

Check the BIOS. You DO have ACHI (not IDE) selected, right?

I have the intel x-25m g180gb and it also gets a 5.9, which i know is bs because a regular 7200rpm caviar green gets a 5.9. Not sure how the wei does the hdd rating, size may have something to do with it......i heard that it might be a drive incompatibility issues with the intel storage manager, but ive never gotten more than a 5.9.

When I ran WEI for the first time after getting my SSD (x25-m g2 80G) I had a score of 7.3 on the Primary Disk. I used the puter for a week, ran TRIM, ran WEI again, and my score dropped to the same 5.9 your seeing. I know TRIM makes the real world perf better, but I think it hoses your WEI. W/E. Scru M$. Like they know d!ck about performance. :kaola:
