Windows 8 Windows Experience Index (WEI)

February 24, 2011

There are a host of new features that will be introduced in Windows 8.

This post will talk about Windows 8 Windows Experience Index (WEI).

The Windows Experience Index (WEI) made its debut in Windows Vista and is continuing to make its mark on Windows 7.

This index was a quick way of comparing the state of the components in your computer against the state of the best possible components available.

The index essentially uses five categories and gives each category a score from 1.0 to 7.9. The categories include: Processor, Memory, Graphics, Gaming Graphics and Primary Hard Disk.

Although each category is given a separate score, your base score or WEI score will be the lowest of the five scores.

It’s a good bet that Windows 8 will have the Windows Experience Index (WEI).
