What is the Windows Experience Index?

The Windows Experience Index is Microsoft"s measurement of how well a computer can run Windows and, although it can be useful, there is a certain obtuseness about it.

Microsoft defines a computer with a base score of 2.0 as one that has the ability khổng lồ run general computing tasks, but it would not be powerful enough to run Aero or advanced multitruyền thông features in Windows 7 or Windows 8. A computer with a base score of 3.0 can run Aero và many of Windows"s features at a basic level, but it might have issues running higher màn chơi functions, such as playing HDTV nội dung or displaying themes at higher resolutions.

Mainstream computers running Windows 7 should have a score of at least 4. Computers running Windows 8 should have sầu a score above 5, due lớn the advances in công nghệ that have sầu happened in the meantime.
