    After installation Windows 7 Boot Camp on Macbook Air (2,13 GHz) the Windows expirience index shows following results:
    Windows 7 64bit (installation of all drivers manually from Leopard 10.6.2 CD) - 1,9 (the lowest on the processor, the rest in norm)
    Windows 7 34bit (installation Boot Camp from Leopard 10.6.2 CD) - 2,9 (the lowest on the processor, the rest in norm)
    CPU 1,9
    RAM 4,5
    graph 4,6
    3d 4,1
    hdd 5,9

    marks after NVidia 9400 last drivers update from NVidia.com:

    CPU 2,9
    RAM 4,5
    graph 4,5
    3d 5,2
    hdd 5,9

    In the blog Win7 on Air
    http://extended64.com/blogs/news/archive/2009/01/19/installing-windows-7-on-a-macbook-air.aspx
    there is a mark of productivity Air in Vista thus even 1,8 GHz shows 4,7. Therefore for 2,13 should be not less. Somewhere there is a problem.

    Apple hasn't released their official Windows 7 drivers. Those will help with any problems you might be seeing using older drivers.

    Not true. If the CPU is under stress and/or temperature is high, the CPU will downclock itself to 1.6GHz.

    But, I spend measurements at once at start windows 7
    Also I spent measurements by operation = result identical

    With a Macbook Air those results are normal. You shouldn't expect amazing results on a system that was designed to be aesthetically beautiful but occupy almost no space. It has slow hardware. An SSD might boost your overall performance.

    doesn't matter? It'll start off at 2.13GHz then downclock to 1.6GHz when its heated up. If you have a nice cool environment, then your scores might be higher.

    Besides, scores means crap. Actual performance matters. If you're worrying about a little score, then you bought the wrong computer.

    Here's mine. Current assessment

    This seems to suggest that Windows 7 bootcamp support isn't official yet, but I don't know much about it.
