I've got a modestly-powered Samsung laptop with an i3 processor, integrated graphics and shared memory, Win7 64bit, etc.
I upgraded my RAM today from the stock 4gb Adata that came with the laptop, to a shiny new 4gb stick of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600. I was hoping to see some decent gains in my WEI scores but to my dismay, the scores were either the same or lower. I did the test a few times and here are the results:
After: - RAM: 5.9 - Graphics: 4.6 or 4.7 - Gaming graphics: 6.0 or 6.1
So is this memory really much of an upgrade from my old setup, or should I just return it?

Btw, are u pairing old ram with new ram or replacing new ram with old ram... ?
Installing better ram will not improve the performance if it not properly configured in BIOS...
Since we talking about notebook... most of them had locked BIOS, so not much can be done....
Brand name also doesn't matter. Your timings and frequency will be the factor. Also you could actually have faster components and get a lower score just because WEI isn't all that accurate. For example. I overclocked my CPU 15% and the score never changed. If it was accurate my score would have been 15% higher.
