WEI Share or “We Share” is a Coding4Fun code sample that takes your Windows Experience Index score and shares it with the world anonymously to a Windows Azure website with a Silverlight front end and lets you post your WEI score to Facebook.
Why would you want to share your WEI score with the world?
First, this gives us a place to compare WEI scores across a wide range of hardware and even see how many touch points a multitouch computer may give you.
Second, a computer’s speed is dependent on the efficiency of the drivers. Sometimes WEI scores go up, sometimes they go down. This will allow you to judge the score that various versions of a driver may give you.
The Windows Experience Index (link) measures the capability of your Windows 7 PC through a set of diagnostics tests. The higher the score, the better your hardware.
In the test, 5 subscores are given for these hardware categories; Processor, Memory, Graphics, Gaming Graphics, Hard drive. Your overall WEI score is the lowest of these five: a computer is only as good as its weakest link.
WEI Share Features:
- See the score a specific model PC or driver gets.
- Post your machine’s score to your Facebook wall for bragging rights.
- Scores can change depending on driver efficiency. WEI Share can tell you the score that each driver gets in configurations closest to yours.
- Find out how many touch points (min/max) a particular multitouch PC can get (depending on driver).
