What kind of scores are you getting on the new Windows 7 Performance ratings?
Mine are about what I'd expect, except I don't understand the hard drive rating--I'd expect it would be higher with a 10,000 rpm drive. Any thoughts?

My XPS 630i:
Processor (Quad 9450): 7.2
Memory (4gb Dell 800mhz): 7.2
Graphics (9800GT): 6.8
Gaming Graphics: 6.8
Primary Hard Disk (WD velocity): 5.9 :o

(Fresh Windows 7 install; no overclocking...yet.)

with my system, i got:

CPU = Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.00Ghz - 7.5
RAM = Corsair Dominator GT's 6GB @ 2005 MHZ - 7.9
Aero Graphics = ATI Radeon HD 4890 1GB - 7.8
Gaming Graphics = ATI Radeon HD 4890 1GB - 7.8
HDD = Seagate 500GB 7200RPM 32MB Cache - 5.9

Unless you have an SSD or RAID, above 5.9 is not possible on the HDD.

Haha, I went in to edit the WEI XML to round that 6.9 to an even 7.0 :lol:

'Cuz you edited yours just to one up me.

Very mature. :-P Just kidding...I suppose Quad Core > Dual Core (handles more packets/threads). Kinda weird that your 8800's are equal to my 9800's. That's what's fishy.

Image

I've heard what m3th0d1c4l has said. The HDD score doesn't go above 5.9 unless you're usin' a solid state disk.

I've read several places that the 8800GT and 9800GT cards are basically the same... just some cosmetic, marketing changes on the 9800GT. If true, that would explain it.

I wouldn't put too much stake in the results of this test, and I'd certainly not look too much into the gpu comparison. In game is the only way to tell the difference.

Yeah, I'm 7.9's across the board except for Hard Disk. Just like kickdown already mentioned, you have to have an SSD to get higher than 5.9. I believe its based on access time, and nothing else because my HDD's perform the same as any SSD on the market, if not better, and still don't get higher than 5.9.

Is there really a big difference between...say my two 80 gig HDDs in Raid 0 and your dual 300GB velociraptors Raid 0?

VelociRaptors are 10,000rpm drives. I have an average read/write speed of nearly 200mb/sec and a burst rate of 4GB/sec. I don't know what kind of drives you have, but I promise they aren't that fast.

Now take SSD's in RAID 0 and they destroy both of us with average read/write speeds of over 400mb/sec!! With three SSD's in RAID 0 that jumps to near 600!!!.......And that's why I just ordered three for myself. :mrgreen:

Download HDTune and run the benchmark, it will tell you the speed of your drives.

:D Now you know what to get me for Christmas.

Actually, I've heard that SSDs have a limited lifetime (for writing data) and that the more information you write to'em, the faster they degrade...I'm not really clear on some of the info. so are they really better than the standard HDDs of today?

This is going to have to be the last off topic post since the original topic is about Windows Performance Scores. I don't want to make anyone mad. :o :D

If you want to get into a detailed discussion, just post a new topic, and I'll be glad to talk it over with you.

Basically, SSD's do have a limited lifespan, and do not like it when things are moved around and/or deleted. Thing is, they have amazing speeds due to not having to depend on a spinning disc so that's the biggest gain...performance, hands down, but not longevity. This makes them great for operating system, but horrible for storage, imo.

Here's my take on this. If you use the SSD's to hold nothing but your operating system, and keep all of your other files, folders, games, and programs saved on a separate storage drive, you can effectively extend the life of the SSD tremendously.

If you look at the videos I posted in the thread "Windows 7 Tweaks" you will see a video that shows you how this is done. You basically mount a partition to your storage drive which mirrors a folder from your SSD. What happens is, the programs get saved onto the storage drive, but the SSD does the actual loading, giving you the speed of the SSD even though the actual program is saved on another drive.

What does this mean to you? Your storage drive is taking the abuse (which it can handle), and your SSD stays nice, empty, and fast for a very long time. This is why you can actually get away with only using a 30GB SSD for your main os drive, since Windows only takes up about 14GB's.

Personally, I'm going with three 30GB Vertex Turbos (just like in the video) in RAID 0 for my operating system, and two 1TB Caviar Blacks in RAID 0 for my storage, so I will have a total of 90GB's for the OS, and 2TB's for the storage, and they will all be screaming fast.

the difference between SSD and HD is big,SSD have 0.2 ms :mrgreen: access time
and HD normal 14 ms :shock: access time.

this is an big difference. ;)

Not bad, but would an extra 2 GB of RAM help things generally? As far as I know Windows 7 32-Bit can only use 3GB of RAM, so is it worthwhile?

shotto,

I wouldn't spend any money on more memory with your current system. You *could* add another 2GB's, but it really won't make any difference. I'd rather see you save the money and put it toward a better motherboard down the road.

As far as getting a higher Windows score, you would not only need more physical memory, but also faster speed, and lower latency which can't be achieved with the stock motherboard.......not enough to be worth it anyway.
