Intel Centrino Duo T2400 1.83GHz

2GB PC4200 533MHz Kingston

Mobile Intel Graphics 945GM

Processor: 4.7

Memory (RAM): 5.4

Graphics: 3.1

Gaming graphics: 3.1

Primary hard disk: 4.5

But I have a question, the graphics score was 3.2, after I updated the qraphics driver from Intel support website, it became 3.1, why?

Reagrds,

Why is my gaming performance so much higher than my basic graphics performance?

Very happy with the performance I receive. I have Raptors in RAID 0 but they are only for Games my Windows install is on a seperate 160GB WD so no wonder the score is quite low for my drive, compared to my CPU or GPU.

I'll get back to you when the Windows Performance Index decides to work again because, since installing the latest Nvidia alpha beta (ForceWare Vista 101.41) drivers. it's simply stopped working.

Still, driverswise, things can only get better- right? :(

I did little testing with Vista. I disabled as many services as i could and set paging down to 200Mb. If you run Battlefield 2...the game will quit soon saying low system memory. Even though it fixes terrible paging which causes stuttering in the game, obviosly it's not enough memory. Even though system is equiped with 2GB + SLI 8800GTX the **** wont cut it. Vista has the worst memory management ever...total crap. Vista simply doesn't put any app or game on the priority list but only windows resources, and it just doesn't want to let memory go for primary app you're running. I guess if you're running 4GB you're set, because a large amount of memory will simply fix broken memory management "by design" in Vista. I'm not bitching...i simply point out the issues this OS has, and has major issues.

I'm using two graphic card for 3 display and the rating is using the Radeon Xpress 200M for the rating. If it were using the Radeo X1600 Pro I think I could get a little more rating.

What I don't understand:

My system:

QX6700 @ 3GHz

RAM: 4GB crucial Ballistix @ 1200MHz T2

Raptors in RAID 0 / 1.2TB of Storage

8800GTX

But my RAM only gets a 5.6 even though it's 400MHz faster than the 800MHz your running :s and I have the same quantity.

I wonder how accurate this rating thing really is.

Mine is 5.3

The scoring stinks, You could have a top of the line video card and processor, but have an onboard sound card and you will have like a 4 rating.

Your score is = to the lowest rated component of your system wich is a very bad way of scoring.

the memory test is a fake :crazy: , dont test memory calculations per seconds, just put a score by ammount of memory, with un GB of DDR400 i get the same score that 1 GB of DDR800 :wacko:

Well I'm starting to like Vista more now. At first I was having problems with my video card drivers but after I installed the latest catalyst everything is working fine. Feels like a pretty XP with more security and some cool features. :D

I like Ready Boost, I have 2 GB RAM and even with that it feels that Ready Boost is doing something, little faster for some programs. What I hate is all the small windows asking about permission. :crazy: I still have to test some programs that I use on XP and see how they run in Vista but most of the programs use work fine.

Yep. IDIOTIC scoring scheme.

Heaven forbid they came up with.....let's say.....oh.....I don't know.....Maybe.....an AVERAGE score!

I think you've both completely missed the point here...

The idea is that you can find games and applications that will run on your system, which if we do it by averages doesn't work too well, i.e. if you have 4x 6 and 1x2 (your graphics card for example) and you want to run a game that requires a score of 5 (again because of its graphics requirements), if you average this you get 5.2 and therefore it is saying to the consumer that the game will run, when it so won't, by using the lowest subscore, the consumer will know the game/app won't run.

Specs as in sig. The C2D isn't at 2.40GHz, thats just the "name" it is given.

What the deuce ... I have the same CPU ... but my Vista gives 5.3 ...

Same amount of RAM ... and it gives me 5.5

I'm running Intel C2D E6600, ASUS P5B Deluxe, DDR2 2Gig(2x1G) PC6400 800Mhz Dual Channel Geil ... and Vista Ultimate 64-b.

If my CPU and RAM subscores were the same as rovman's ... my overall rating would be 5.7 too ...
