Intel Graphics 3000 vs 4000 Performance

I have an Ideapad Z575 & Z580.

The Z575 runs Win7, 8GB RAM, i5-2450M with Intel HD Graphics 3000.

The Z580 runs Win8, 6GB RAM, i5-3210M with Intel HD Graphics 4000.

 

In performance testing using Microsoft Experience Index, the Intel 3000 got a

Graphics score of 6.3. The Intel 4000 got a Graphics score of 4.9.

 

Both operating systems have been updated as well as downloading the latest Intel drivers.

What I can't understand is the performance of the Intel 4000 which should be better than 3000. Unless the Win8 implementation is poor.

My HD4000 in Win7 x64 with the same i5-3210M gets WEI of 6.5 for graphics and gaming, I dont have Win8, maybe Microsoft have reduced the WEI score in Win8 to account for new hardware, as 7.9 was the max in Win7 and my SSD got 7.9

Interesting input. I reran the test and got 5.6 for graphics and 6.4 for gaming on the Z580. The Intel 3000 got both 6.3 for graphics and gaming on the Z575. My Z580 HD was 5.8
