The components of my laptop Lenovo ThinkPad T60 received such estimates: Processor: 4.7 Memory: 4.5 Graphics: 4.6 Gaming Graphics: 4.0 HDD: 4.4 Since the lowest score – for the game graphics – is 4.0, the total rating system or the Windows Experience Index is 4.0 points, too. Apparently, the score is placed on the principle of "a chain is out there and tear." By the way, laptop is a very good result. On the model, of which I speak, is set Dual-Core Intel Core Duo T2500 with a frequency of the current 2 GHz, 1 gb of ram and a graphics card ati Mobility Radeon X1400 with 128 mb of ram. While the technology assessment performance of Windows is not much value, unless you're the lucky owner first-class computer system – then you will be able to boast of its assessment in front of friends, just rotated on the technologies, as you are. More information is housed here: ConocoPhillips. But if the assessment system will fulfill its promise of Microsoft and will be truly successful, developers of applications and games will indicate on their products the minimum value of the index performance of Windows, so buyers will be easier to understand what software is compatible with their system, and what is not. To understand how this will work, you can already look at the Games Explorer, which specifies the minimum and recommended setting the Windows Experience Index for the games installed with Windows Vista. To see performance index after installing Windows Vista, open the System Properties (right click on line "computer" in the Start menu and select "Properties"). .
