Wrong window 7 score for 4850 Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: May 3, 2010 3:35 PM in Graphics & Displays Share dgmt321 April 30, 2010 5:06:04 AM I used to have a 4670 and it had a 6.7 score in window 7 rating. I just upgraded to the 4850 and now the score is 6.0. It doesn't make any sense. Anybody know the problem?

It's not accurate at all, use Sandra or equivalent to benchmark your system =) Maziar a c 168 U Graphics card April 30, 2010 7:37:59 AM +1^ Always use benchmarks to check your system's performance Related resources 9896 3dmark06 score with hd 4850 ?! - Forum Is Windows Index score Wrong ? - Forum 4850 xfire low scores in 3dmark06 need help. - Forum windows ram index bugs - score is wrong - Forum What is your Windows Experience Index Score for your SSD - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Mactronix RetiredChief a b U Graphics card April 30, 2010 3:05:44 PM While I agree that WEI is NOT a very good bench mark, I see no reason that if you upgrade a GPU - the score would decrease. I would suspect a minor driver issue. You could run 3DMark06 and compare your results to the norm. When ever I change a GPU, I alwas delete the drivers, run a driver Cleaner program, and re-install the Cat software suite (even if it is the same version). I've not had a higher end GPU, memory, GPU give a lower rating than a Lower end counter part. The HDD scores are the only one I've noted discrepencies, ie Mechanical HDD seems to be capped at 5.9/6.0.
