Hello all, I just installed a new mSATA SSD and went to run my WEI scores. Clean install of Win 7 HP, absolutely no Lenovo Bloat crapware.
I'm getting 4.5 for "Graphics"...which I think is low. Can others post scores so I can compare?
ATI Driver 8.861.0.0 5/24/2011
Catalyst Control Center 2011.0524.2352.41027

Gaming Graphics 6.8
Primary Hard Disk 5.7
Refreshed it while I was playing and loading music, with 50% of all the bloatware, Lenovo Win 7, on high performance.

Snap, you overclock your GPU at all?
Which drivers are you running, if I might ask?

No overclock, I wanna overclock so bad, but I tried, and I got BSOD, so I accept that my laptop wont be able to play battlefield 3
I got the 8.861 Driver, not official, and I believe the old driver was just as fast, I just hated how the GPU kept turning off from sleep mode.
I also think that using Lenovo specific Win7 makes hardware more compatible. I had mine for 3/4 of a year now, and I expect it to die by next year because of overheating problems.

Hmmm, I'm using official from ATI not Lenovo, interesting that your GPU scores are SO much better than mine. Wonder what my problem is, perhaps there's a Lenovo program I haven't installed =\

So, I just D/L'd drivers from lenovo, uninstalled my previous driver, installed the catalyst drivers, and here's my latest WEI score:
Only Problem is, I think it's still using the previous driver and now catalyst control center crashes at boot.

TX man, just installed an mSATA SSD, it kicks some major booty. I also have the 0646.
