    Try downloading and running the (portable) Winaero WEI Tool. It seems to work when Winsat does not. Why? Who knows?:

    Update: The 3D results looked too high, so I went in and looked at the Winsat 3D results, and it said the 3D tests are no longer run; therefore, the 3D score is bogus on my rig. I am running W10 Insider 16184.

    Those must be some of most useless benchmarks ever. That's just a front end for what Windows do during installation to very roughly determine some initial user settings, Like performance settings.
    Look at this:

    Newest processor with 6/12 cores @4.1GHz gives it 8.9 and very basic, low end GPU gets 8.2 and 9.9. Score for SSD is almost same as for a HDD. I was getting almost same score for a dual core Athlon, 512 MB Gpu and HDD.
