Samsungq1ultrapremiumvistaindexI don’t put too much stock in the Windows Experience Index, but to many folks it’s a general indicator that useful for comparison purposes between Vista devices. Besides, I know someone’s going to ask for the numbers. ;)

The overall index is 2.3 as shown, but you have to realize that the index uses the lowest of the five numbers. I always thought it should use some type of weighted average, but then again I studied Econometrics in college so this should be expected. Here’s the individual scores on the Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium running Vista with 2 GB of RAM:

  • Processor: 2.9
  • Memory (RAM): 4.4
  • Graphics: 2.3
  • Gaming graphics: 2.8
  • Primary hard disk: 3.7

How do these numbers compare to other UMPCs running Vista? Chime in if you’ve got data to share!

  1. Here are my numbers (Q1U with 2GB of RAM):

    * Processor: 2.0
    * Memory (RAM): 4.6
    * Graphics: 3.7
    * Gaming graphics: 2.6
    * Primary hard disk: 3.4

    Interesting, especially the Graphics score. What’s up with that?

  2. Fujitsu P1610 with Vista Business and SSD:

    Processor: 2.7
    Memory (RAM): 4.3
    Graphics: 4.2
    Gaming Graphics: 2.8
    Primary hard disk: 5.2

    My U1400 processor scored 2.8 from the factory but the score dropped to 2.7 after replacing the motherboard. The graphics score improved from 3.9 to 4.2 by downloading new drivers and INF utility from Intel. Is there an updated Intel 950 GMA Vista driver for the Q1U-Premium? I can’t seem to find any on the Intel site.

  3. Here’s the HTC Shift, 800MHz Atom, 1Gb Ram.

    Processor 2.1
    Memory 4.5
    Graphics 3.7
    Gaming Graphics 2.7
    Primary Hard Disk 3.7

  4. Wonder why 5.9 is the highest? Would be better with a Spinal Tap eleven!

  5. Kevin, how does Vista ‘feel’ on the Q1UP?
    Regardless I’ll stick with XP for a long while as it’s got what I need.

    By the way I got my replacement Q1UP and it does not have the camera problem (where it kept taking pictures!)

  6. HP Compaq 2710P in 2GB RAM configuration. Its not really a UMPC but still good for comparison.

    * Processor: 4.4
    * Memory (RAM): 4.2
    * Graphics: 2.4
    * Gaming graphics: 3.1
    * Primary hard disk: 3.9

    Thanks

  7. Re Shift score, D’oh, not Atom, I meant A110. Was just reading an Atom article beforehand….

  8. Fujitsu U810 1GB RAM, 40GB HD, Vista Business.

    Index score 2.1
    Processor 2.1
    memory 4.5
    Graphics 3.5
    Gaming Graphics 2.6
    Primary Hard Disk 3.7

  9. Sony UX380N

    Processor: 2.9
    Memory: 4.3
    Graphics: 3.5
    Gaming graphics: 2.6
    Primary hard disk: 3.7
