bought a 6950 not long ago and it brought my windows index up to 7.9 for graphics.

without getting into too many details it said my hardware changed and i needed to recalculate the index. i havent check the index in months but dont remember installing anything or changing any settings

after the recalc it says my index is 6.0

wtf!!!!!!!

i went into bios and disabled onboard graphics thinking maybe it was using that but it didnt help.

any ideas or help would be great




i can provide any necessary details but basic system

phenom2 965
asus mobo
saphire 6950 dirt 3 edition

could that be making that much of a difference?

First, update to the latest beta AMD catalyst driver of 12.1. Then In your 1080p monitor, go back to 720p, increase all Graphic cards setting to the highest from the catalyst control panel. Then, close any background application, open (if you don't have download msi afterburner), there overclock your GPU core at 875mhz. Then run WEI back. Good luck :) .

Probably driver problem. I agree with refillable, install the latest drivers.

I really can't see a 6950 getting the top score.....what's that leave for the more expensive cards ?

My GTX 560 Ti is getting max score too. Nobody uses windows experience rating as a benchmark for a reason..
