Computer is one device which gets old really fast, and the reason why I am saying this is because there are lots and lots of improvements in hardware and software technology that even if you buy the latest configuration model from the market, it feels old and slow in couple of years.
If you wish to check the performance of your machine, you don’t need to install any third party software for that as Windows had got Windows Experience Index for that by default. The Windows Experience Index measures the capability of your computer’s hardware and software configuration and expresses this measurement as a number called a base score. A higher base score generally means that your computer will perform better and faster than a computer with a lower base score, especially when performing more advanced and resource-intensive tasks.
While it is present by default in Windows, the feature has been taken off from Windows 8.1, so if you wish to operate on the latest OS while still enjoy the WEI, you can use this tool called as ChrisPC Win Experience Index.
What this tool does is that, it brings the Windows Experience Index back to your Win 8.1 OS so that you can run and check the performance of your machine’s hardware and software handling abilities. All you need to do is just install and run this tool, it will take some time in the backend and present you the results.
Using this tool you can know where is your PC’s abilities are lacking and what you should consider upgrading. If you wish to improve this score, there is only one thing that you can do, which is, to take care of your machine, clean the junks periodically and upgrade the low performing parts.
