    did 10 artificially inflate my wei number?


    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, that cannot be right, especially for a card a few years old compared to new cards on the market, anyone else notice similar?

    WEI has never been any good as benchmark.

    Notice the pattern. Whatever version of Windows you have, you notice that it is always just below the version number of Windows.

    Windows 8 (goes up to 7.x or whatever WEI)
    Windows 8.1 (goes up to 7.9 or whatever WEI)
    Windows 10 (goes up to 9.9 or whatever WEI)

    Always just shy of the major version number of Windows.

    Clever, right? Yeah not really.

    I doubt that the question can be answered with any degree of certainty.

    The operation of WEI has been described only in very general terms with most of the details undocumented. I doubt that WEI has changed much in Windows 10 but there have been a number of changes that influence performance. I suspect that one or more of these have changed the WEI score.

    Using a single number to describe the complex performance characteristics of a modern video system is marginally useful at best and strange results are not unusual. There have been cases where identical computers have produced significantly different WEI scores.

    I've looked for WEI and couldn't find it, how do you even run it in Windows 10?

    It means nothing in the real world, so don't worry about it.
    Microsoft also changed the way it came up with the scores in different versions of windows , so you cant compare them anyway.

    I realize that but it's kind of an OCD thing now since I can't find it... so how do we use it in W10?

    It's quite possible it changed because of the new DirectX 12.
