    Only 7.8 for your CPU? That means to get 7.9 on everything would need a 3960X...

    So she is still fit for gaming and graphic-intensive programs. And that's all that matters! Thanks for sharing :D

    Naaah, that's fine for me. I always wanted to switch from Intel Sandy Bridge, but I'll just be waiting for my AMD to power out for that to happen. Thanks for sharing! :D

    That tiny twinge of a 7.8 makes me think of re-applying a good thermal paste if that was mine. Thanks for sharing! :p

    LOL - Or possibly another OC digit. :)

    Nice scores! You beat my Sapphire Radeon 6790 against your Nvidia GTS 450, not to mention mine's pretty much released later than the GTS 450 Series. Thanks! (y)(y)

    What does amaze me is how Microsoft could say my Q6600 is only 0.7 behind Dawn's Intel Core i7 3930K, which let's face it, is lightning years head of my quad-core.

    Also, how on earth is my HD6870 only 0.1 behind all of the top-end GPUs. I mean I do rave about its abilities for a mid-range GPU but it just doesn't "fit" in the general sense of the index numbers. In relation to today's hardware my index score should be like high 5's, because the difference really is similar to the scores given between mechanical disks and SSDs.

    No problem at all, glad I could help.

    I think it's the fact that the majority of Windows users are either on integrated graphics or the low end cards that come with pre-built systems. Any sort of gaming card would be many times better than those.

    Aye possibly, but it would make sense to give them even lower scores and then list GPUs with a more relative index score. I realise that top-end stuff like GTX680's and SLI GTX680's will all score 7.9, but my HD 6870 is nowhere near as powerful so a 0.1 decrease in index just looks strange. lol.

    Yeah it is wierd, but if you had SLI 680's you wouldn't really care about the WEI anyway ;)

    Or I could just "act oblivious" and say wow, my card is only 0.1 slower than a GTX 680. :D

    Shame I clearly know different, however. haha.

    I came across a forum thread on this subject not long ago. A fellow on another website garnered a 7.9 CPU score with a single CPU -- a six-core CPU overclocked to a whopping 5.6 GHz! Now I don't know jack about overclocking, but I'm sure 5.6GHz is way fast -- especially for a six-core CPU. Can't imagine how the guy managed to keep the heat down.

    WEI is fun, but it really doesn't say much about performance gaming-wise. Heh-heh. Take just about any game out there, and an overclocked 2600K will leave my stock 3930K gasping in a cloud of dust. :'(

    Merging old thread into new one so people can go to earlier replies and see scores with older hardware in older versions..
