Windows Experience Index When you first install Windows Vista, in general a fast process oddly slowed, as soon as you proceed to the analysis of data on the original performance (Out of Box Experience, OOBE) after the last reboot. In the installation dialog box displays the message: “Please wait while Windows will evaluate your performance system, and displays the windows with advertising, which explains the various functions and characteristics of Windows Vista (no doubt for you not to miss while in the process of evaluation). At this time, Windows, in fact, estimates system performance, and if all tests are successful, the various components and the entire computer as a whole will be exposed to a certain number of points. It is interesting to note that the total number of points – the index Performance Windows – not calculated as the arithmetic mean, but on the basis of the lowest rates. But this is not the strangest thing. The most amazing feature of this assessment is on what scale the system is evaluated and its components.
It would be logical if Microsoft evaluated on a scale of 1 to 10 or from 1 to 5 – this makes sense. But in fact, the highest score – 5.9. Yes, yes, the system is evaluated on a scale of 1 to 5.9, it’s true – is not invented. If completely honest, assessment performed on an open scale to be able to evaluate new equipment as it becomes available. An evaluation of Windows Experience makes a certain amount of points the cpu, memory (RAM), graphics, gaming graphics and originally installed hard drive.
