Windows Experience Score – Win7 RC Vs Win 7 Beta

When I checked the Windows Experience Index shortly after I had upgraded to the Win 7 Beta back in January  I had a score of 2.0

However after checking following my RC1 install on the same machine with the same hardware (Toshiba Tecra M7) It has increased to 3.4 .

Windows 7 RC Expereince scoreWhich is better than when the same machine was running Vista.

I have not read of any major changes between the Beta and RC with how the Windows Experience Score is calculated, although I recall there being differences between Vista and Win 7.

What’s your score? and have you seen a difference between Beta and RC?

    Hi robmar,

               Although my score of 5.9 has remained the same going from beta 7000 to rc 7100 the make up is very different;

    beta 7000

             x2 6000+    6.1

             4g ballistik 5.9

             8800gt 512m  7.9

    RC 7100 ‘Exactly the same hardware case unopened’

        graphics (aero) 5.9

            gaming graphics  5.9

    not sure what drivers win7 installed but i then tryed 185.** win7 issue from nvidia with no change so installed 182.50 vista and now have 6.0 on both graphics scores, i can only have the ability to turn off scaling with 182.50 also.

     Note, i’m working with 64bit here.
