The Experience Index System Assessment Tool is a replacement for the graphical user interface (GUI) of the Windows System Assessment Tool (WinSAT) originally introduced in Windows Vista , but removed from Windows 8.1 and later versions.
This app initiates the original WinSAT test, which assesses performance characteristics and capabilities of your hardware, reporting them in the form of a Windows Experience Index score. The WEI includes five sub scores measuring respectively processor, memory, desktop graphics, 3D graphics, and primary disk. The base score is equal to the lowest of the sub scores and is not an average of the sub scores.
Open-source WPF version
The initial, non-Microsoft Store version of Experience Index Assessment Tool has been open-sourced since July 2020, and can be checked out from GitHub at https://github.com/hannesbarbez/BarbezDotEu.WinSAT.Wpf. When compiled, works as well as the store version but sports somewhat less feature-rich functionalities.
Hall of Fame
Start the Experience Index System Assessment Tool. For optimal and accurate results, leave it running uninterrupted by not using any other programs until all scores are calculated and appear on screen. The app shows a “working” background animation while all necessary System Assessment tests are being run. This can take several minutes. When finished, the Windows Experience Index will be shown. Also, you now can save a screenshot of your scores (in PNG format) or share them straight to Twitter.
