    strange, I only have a older 1gb radeon 7770 DDR5 video card, under windows 8 and latest drivers it got something like 7.5 for gaming graphics, under windows 8.1 it went to like 7.9 but under windows 10, it says 9.9 for gaming graphics:eek:, that cannot be right, especially for a card a few years old compared to new cards on the market, anyone else notice similar?

    is 10 really that efficient that it gives you this much of a bonus?!?! lol

    Where did you find that info on 10? And those numbers aren't comparible between windows versions, it's on a relative scale.

    I kind of miss it. I used to go into the local best buy and bring the score up on every running desktop and laptop on display and watch the blue shirts freak out when people asked what it meant.

    the numbers have given me a quite accurate picture between all windows versions given my hardware and age of components, only under 10 does it seem like the gpu has been given quite a boost, lol

    hahaha, yes for sure :D

    yeah, maybe another attempt by ms to really push 10, make you think your hardware is better than it is! :biggrin:

    LOL. Someone on the Linux Mint forum did something similar. Bought a half-dozen cheap USB flash drives and copied a Linux Mint .iso onto each one. Then went into Wal-Mart and rebooted every other machine on display into a live CD session of Mint. Had the customers asking "Is this the new version of Windows?" and the sales staff freaking out.

    It was either windows 8.0 or 8.1 that upgraded the WE index to a value between 1.0 to 9.9 from Windows 7s 1.0 to 7.9 scale
    Windows 10 has the newest WE index

    8.0 8.1 and 10 use the same 9.9 as the maximum score
