Web Page Rendering:
Test Setup:
Gigabyte X58A-OC
Intel I7 920 @ 4.7 GHz
GeIL Evo Corsa 16GB 2400 MHz CL11
Asus Radeon HD 6990
OCZ Vertex 2

Before tweaking: 13-15 pages/s
After tweaking: ~40 pages/s

First Step: Use Windows Internet Explorer 9 (IE9)

Download IE9:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/i...wide-languages


(Yeah my browser is in french, but settings are located the same)

Then go to settings => Set Zoom to 1000 %


Disable all this bunnypoop:





Set homepage to void/blank/null


Go to Navigation History settings (2) do like on the pic bellow:
First disable temporary files.
Then move the temporary file folder into your USB drive/key/thumb (removable device) (Don't forget to remove your usb drive/thumb/key after you launched PCMark05, or remove it after tweaking is done, but never forget to do it or your score will be very low.)


Disable everything here: (3)


Next go to security, here are the settings I used, dunno if they are the best ones but it works just fine on my system so... :



Now go to Advance Settings, here are the settings I use:



Then lower IE9's windows:


And enjoy 40 pages/s

Great

The mouse tweak for Transparent windows should be listed, too - just move the mouse while the test is running. Aero must be enabled.

WMV Power Toy helps the WMV subtest - can't remember the exact settings, but I'm sure someone else can help us out
