hi lenovo community,
there is something that is really strange: i use vista premium 32 sp1 and the vista experience index says that my Intel 4500mhd is rated with 3.1 in normal graphics and 3.5 in gaming graphics.
How is it possible, that the rating of normal graphics is lower than the gaming graphics?
intel driver is the 18.104.22.1688
thanks for answers in advance!

hy i have the same problem in vista but in windows 7 i have rating 4,5 at gaming performance and 3,8 for windows
so i was thinking that was a mistake of w7 but i startet gta san andreas and i have played at 1280x800 max all 30fps
and nfs uncoverd at 1024x768 no aa no shadows the other settings was mainstream like and it was possible to play this game
so w7 is gone and i have back my vista ..... and now i have started ^gta sa again and what can i say its not playable like diashow no metter 640x400 ore 800x600 its unplayable
and nfs tzzzztzzzz no chance
so what we should do? ^
i think the 4500mhd is more powerfull than we think, what we need is a how to do in vista
sorry for my bad english
greets from Austria Tirol

I have found this thread and another one [ http://forums.lenovo.com/lnv/board/message?board.id=SL_ThinkPads&thread.id=1360 ] very helpful.
Here is my situation: I have purchased 2746-6FG and in the time of purchase, they upgraded it to 3GB wih another DDR2-800 module. Inside was 1GB DDR2-667 and my memory bus is running on 667MHz now. My WEI is 3,2 which is lower than on i965/x3100. I was wondering to remove that factory module and to see would my memory run on 800MHz then, and now I am sure that it would. It would probably increased my WEI by 0.1 or 0.2, but I don't need it now(I don't use it for any of itensive operations). I was just curious to see if my chipset and bus support those speeds.

Not sure if you're still monitoring this thread, but I'm also interested in wei readings with driver 22.214.171.1248.
Mine are the same as yours with 126.96.36.1998 - that is "3.1 in normal graphics and 3.5 in gaming graphics".
But using 188.8.131.528 (that's 1508 instead of 1608), I get 4.0 in normal graphics and 3.7 in gaming graphics.
What I'd like to know is whether 1608 really slows down graphics processing or it is a quirk of the wei calculations.
I'd have to reload 1608 (I'm currently back to 1508) and go and get some proper graphics measurement program to find out, and I'm busy at the moment.
Incidentally, this isn't on a Lenovo computer but on an Asus.
