Why does Vista not like AMD processors?
I have a AMD FX-55 processor and vista is only rating it a 4.4 while my
buddy has a P4 2.8 and Vista rates his at 5.4! A AMD FX is 10 times the
processor of a P4, I dont really care but I was just curious why it would do
that.

RE: Why does Vista not like AMD processors?
I have a AMD 64 3800+ @ 2.64GHz and I am also getting a 4.4 rating!
Go figure!

I very much doubt your buddies Pentium 4 scores 5.4! My Core 2 Duo 6600 is
5.3! I haven't seen a single core processor go above 4.9.

Sound's like he might of found out how to edit the scores in the XML files
located in:

C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore

Re: Why does Vista not like AMD processors?
I have overclocked my FX from 2.6 to 3.0 and the rating has not changed
either. Is this a preset by model? Surely it would see some improvement from
that?

Re: Why does Vista not like AMD processors?
I don't think that they have model presets because I tested my x2 3800+ at
stock speeds and got a 4.5 and then overclocked it to 2.6 and got a 5.2. I
think that the CPU scoring isn't necessarily just the CPU. i think that
memory latency will definitely help it.
