    Processor needs a bit of overclocking to up the cpu/memory scores to get the average up to 7.7

    This thread seems to be more about the performance of peoples own rigs, so I might be posting in the wrong place I thought it could be useful to create a list of generic machines that are being used in schools and how well they run Windows 7. This may be impossible due to the amount of hardware out there but since I'm testing it on our own hardware anyway it's not a problem to share what I find.

    (All drivers installed by Win7 unless otherwise stated)
    Windows Experience Index: Processor/Memory/Graphics/3D/Disk

    Working
    Acer TravelMate 6293 - 5.5/5.6/3.1/3.4/5.1 (TPM, cardreader and FIR driver req.)
    Acer 5630 - 4.5/4.5/2.2/3.1/4.6 (camera and cardreader driver req.)

    HP dx5800 - 5.9/5.5/3.3/3.5/5.9 (modem driver prob)
    Acer L100 - 4.7/4.5/3.3/3.0/5.6


    Problems
    Lifebook S7010 - No WDDM driver so no aero plus poor graphics performance in general.

    Hmm. I seem to be well off the "pace" of that with my home machine:

    - CPU: dual 3.2Ghz 2Mb L3 Xeons
    - RAM: 3Gb PC3200
    - Graphics: ATi Radeon HD 4650 (with Asus beta drivers for now)
    - HDD: 250Gb SATA Hitachi Deskstar
    - Windows 7 Professional 32bit, clean install but now three months old.

    It records an overall score of 5.0 - which isn't all bad for an old warhorse that's coming up to five years old and kept alive with bits off eBay. Considering how little it's cost me to build, you could even say I'm quite pleased with it.

    Not a bad rig I suppose given its age! How does it work for computers is it same as dogs, 1 year equals 7 dog years so 1 year equals 7 computer years??

    asrock system

    here is the performance report for my pc

    CPU = 6.5 (CORE 2 DUO E8400 @3.0GHZ)
    MEMORY = 5.5 (A PAIR OF GENERIC DDR2 667 TOTAL 2GB)
    GRAPHICS - DESKTOP PERFORMANCE FOR AERO = 4.0 (ASUS HD3400 512MB)
    GAMING GRAPHICS - 3D BUSINESS & GAMING GRAPHICS = 5.5
    PRIMARY HARD DISC = 5.5 (320GB WESTERN DIGITAL SATA)

    THE MOTHERBOARD IS AN ASROCK P43D TWINS 1394. SCORE IS LET DOWN BY LOW SPEC VIDEO CARD
    AS I DONT PARTICIPATE IN GAMING SO I CANNOT SEE THE POINT IN WASTING OVER £300 IF I DONT
    NEED THE PERFORMANCE. THE PC ALSO DUAL BOOTS WINDOWS XP HOME 32BIT ALONGSIDE WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM 32BIT
    PERFORMANCE IS OTHERISE BRILLIANT. OH I FORGOT. AERO AND THE OTHER SIMILAR UN-NEEDED CRAP IS TURNED OFF. IT HELPS PERFORMANCE AND FREES MEMORY

    Cool

    Update on my score and I will have another when I get my 5870 in a few days.
    For some reason I cannot take a screen shot of the left monitor.
    Maybe when it gets here I can take a full 3 monitor shot with Eyefinity.
    Got my active Display Port to DVI adapter too so good to go soon as it hits the porch.

    Nice Setup! Quick question about the 5800 series if you dont mind as tempted by a 5850. In terms of triple monitor out does it work spanning the desktop across 3 displays of different sizes? I've currently got 2 x 20" widescreen monitors (1680x1050) and plan on buying a new 24" monitor (1920x1200) to use as the main centre desktop with one of my exisitng monitors at either side.

    I'm not too interested in playing games using eyefinity but primarily wanted to use it as a triple monitor out for productivity. The main thing I want to make sure of is that I can use the 24" monitor as the centre monitor (with the start menu/task bar on it)? All of the demo's I've seen of triple-out are for eyefinity and have the start menu on the left most screen which I definitely dont want. Can you move the 'primary monitor' to the middle screen and 'position' the other monitors at each side?

    Will the above setup work OK and/or are there any other 'gotchas' I need to be aware of?
    [I realise I need to make sure the new monitor has a display port input]

    Any tips would be appeciated

    TIA

    You currently have to have all monitors in the same res for eyefinity.

    You can however set any screen you want primary and just extend teh desktop to the others for work.

    You can have your toolbar on the middle monitor.

    If you set your monitors as a group they can be in many configurations for work or play check out eyefinity configurations in google search.

    Also check out Ultra monitor. With it I have a single desktop and my toolbar on each window with the programs for each window on it's own toolbar.

    In my screen shot the toolbar you see is the middle monitor.

    The left monitor is not taking shots with my screen shot software but it is also on an an 8800GTX and has it's own set of drivers so not surprised that there is an issue.

    I am gaming now in triple screen with SoftTH if you want to give that a go it supports custom resolutions and you just need another video card for the 3rd video output.

    Monitor 3 can come from any card...your primary card renders the resolution.

    Look at my profile picks for a better look at what I am doing with a 4870 till my 5870 gets here.

    Back on topic I wonder how much of a gain I will see in my windows score with the 5870 over my 4870 ?

    Finally got RTM installed on my home desktop and it's nearly all running as I want. My machine is nowt special and, despite having all the tricks up its sleeve, it's running at standard clock rates:
    • Asus Maximus Extreme mobo
    • Intel Q6600
    • 8GB Corsair XMS DD3 (dual channel randomness)
    • ATI Radeon HD4870
    • 2x 30GB OCZ Vertex SSD (RAID0)
    • 1x Samsung Spinpoint F1 750GB


    Scores:
    • Processor: 7.1
    • Memory: 7.1
    • 2D Graphics: 7.3
    • 3D Graphics: 7.3
    • Primary HDD: 7.5 (God only knows how you get this any higher!)


    Anyway... Overall 7.1

    So the only way to get higher than 5.9 for the hard disk is to go SSD right?
