Help?! Windows Performance Graphics
Jul 10, 2012, 11:05 PM
Hello there i recently did the windows assesment and for some reason i got a subscore of 1.0 on my windows aero graphics? any help understanding this
Windows 7 64bit home premium
Amd phenom 9650 quad-core processor 2.30ghz
6.00 gb ddr2 6400u ram dual channel
Sapphire radeon 6870 1gb
2x250gb hdd's in raid 0
Scores for pc are
Graphics 1.0(<--- why??)
i've also come to believe that the windows scores are now completely useless as my graphics should not be a 1.0

They are not usually popular my 8800gt gets a 6.9 so....I don't know are the drivers all installed?

That's odd that your Graphics would score 1.0 and Gaming would score a 7.8...usually they're both the same.
However, if your computer is doing fine, I wouldn't really worry about it
WEI is known to be a bit on the odd side sometimes.

i did upate from catalyst 12.3 to the newest 12.6 and i haven't changed anything in my computer. the only thing i changed was from 8gb ddr2 to 6gb ddr2 but i don't think it'd affect graphics. maybe the newer catalyst affected it?
