Detailed performance testing with winsat

What you see in the score for your Windows Vista and Windows 7 machines, you know the score in System properties and Performance and information tools, really comes from the command line tool “winsat”. To find out some very detailed performance specs on your machine and the specific hardware parts such as hard drive, graphics card, memory and such you can run the command winsat with a number of switches.

For instance “winsat disk” runs performance tests on my disks and present it in detail with read/write speeds etc along with the score on each individual test. Give it a try!
