Nice number for that machine ( 5.3 )! My new 2011 mba 13 i5 256 gb ssd is just a tad higher sitting at 5.6 ...

Overall 5.9, don't think I'll hit 6.0 without a SSD or ramdisk trickery.

Windows Experience Score

Searched to see if this has been done already - didn't find anything.

Just wondered what people had in terms of windows experience scores and Parallels / Bootcamp.

My system
Early 2011 Top end/base spec MBP 2.2Ghz i7 8Gb Ram 750HDD

Software - Parallels

Virtual machine
CPU - 2
Ram 4 Gb
Performance - Faster
Video - 1Gb

Windows Experience score 5.5
Processor 5.5
Ram 7.7
Graphics 5.9
Gaming 5.6
HDD 6.0

Increasing the number of processor cores to 4 improves the processor score to 7.3

How do others have their machines set up?
What are your scores?
What tweaks have worked for you?
How do your tweaks effect the Mac environment?

Reduce or remove the pagefile, and disable hibernate if space is a concern. They'll be consuming the majority of that space.

That, and VSS Storage space plus remove unneeded Windows components and you should be down to lean and mean Win 7!

Try to install Windows in BootCamp, not in virtualisation software. Transition time between Win7Ult and MacOSXSnL is about 30sec on 256GB SSD.

I'll play. First one is before I enabled AHCI. Second one is after. Look at the jump on Primary Hard Disk performance. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a 2.2GHz Early-2011 MBP with 8GB of RAM and a 240GB Vertex 3 SSD. It absolutely screams.

My MacBook Pro WEI Scores!!

Now, to figure out why it's more sluggish than my Alienware M17x when playing Aion (an MMO RPG). My Alienware has worse scores in all areas!!

Running at the same resolution on both machines?

Windows 7 (32 bit) under Parallels 8

Proc: 7.4
Memory 5.5
Graphics: 5.1
Gaming graphics: 4.5
Primary hard disk: 7.9

Not surprised the graphics scores are relatively low, considering it's a virtual machine on a Mac without a discrete GPU, but not sure why the memory is as slow as it is.

Yes. I set the in-game settings the same on both
computer clients. The only thing I can think of is maybe some of the drivers aren't optimized on the Mac? idk :-(

FYI...Apple's Boot Camp drivers blow...especially for video. You're better off installing the 650m drivers from NVIDIA. I got a huge performance boost switching to AMD Catalyst on my Mid-2007 iMac.

Ok. I'll check it out. I thought I had downloaded my drivers from the nVidia site after installing the Boot Camp drivers. Thanks for the suggestion!

Update: Ok. I updated the graphics driver to the latest version. Not sure whether I really did test it at the same resolution as on my Alienware M17x notebook PC (I thought I had). But, tonight, I surely did. And the performance was fantastic!! The only problem is that at 1920 x 1280, the gameplay window is much smaller than on my Alienware :-( Not much I can do about that, since my Retina display's native resolution is so much higher.

Thanks for the tips, guys!!
