I had vista business edition, and had a 3.7 on it, and I just recently installed ultimate edition b/c business edition is just awful, but I now have a 3.8 on the same computer. Does anyone know if different version use hardware differently, I don't think it does, but this is the only conclusion on the score difference.
your first score probably happened when the processor was under a load or something.
the two values 'are' very similar. barring the reason your base score changed being like, one of your subscores plummeted, I'd have two say when you tested on business edition, your processor may have been under a load of some kind, resulting in the change of score.
since the score was such a small change, I wouldn't worry about it. but, out of curiosity, did you by any chance change from a 32, to a 64 bit version when you upgraded?
Nope, ran it with nothing running, didn't change the type of install (32 to 64 bit). And the only change was in the graphics, but nothing changed with that.
Well it doesn't really make a difference, since yes it was only a .1 increase.
I'm not in front of it now so I can't remember what exactly was holding it back. Since it was a new build I was just happy with the score since my wallet can't fathom any more expenditures currently :P I already fell for some advertising on newegg and bought another two gigs of memory I didn't really need. Who can say no to a 50 dollar rebate? :)
My vista score is 3.7:!: Ah well that is what u should expect with a onboard graphic card! Although the Individual Scores are Processor : 5.1 ,Memory : 5.5,Graphics :3.9, Gaming Graphics : 3.7, Primary Hard Disk : 5.4
My Machine Specs are Intel Core 2 Duo E6400, 2GB RAM, Intel DG965WH Mobo, Seagate 250 GB HD DSK.
