Windows Experience Index (WEI) in Windows 8.1


Windows System Assessment Tool (WinSAT), is still there in Windows 8.1, however. To find your scores, you just need to type a couple of commands from the command line.


  1. Start a command prompt (run as administrator),
  2. type “winsat prepop” and press Enter. This will start the benchmark measurement and will store the results as XML files.
  3. Start Windows Powershell as administrator,
  4. type “Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_WinSAT” and press Enter. This will analyze the results of the previous created XML files
  5. Now the scores will be presented in the windows.

    • GraphicsScore is the score for the graphics capabilities of the PC.
