I'm trying to figure out why I get a higher windows experience score using just my GIGABYTE GV-R725O5-2GI Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card vs that card and my AMD A10-7850K Kaveri with dual graphics enabled.

With dual graphics enabled my video scores are 7.0. With just the video card it goes up to 7.3. Only thing I've tweaked so far is the ram's mhz from 1333 to 1600.

Full system specs:

AMD A10-7850K Kaveri == CPU with cooler master hyper evo 212 fan
ASUS A88X-Pro == mother board
GIGABYTE GV-R725O5-2GI Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 == Video Card
Catalyst driver is 14.4 (tried with 14.6 with same results)
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin SDRAM DDR3 1600 == memory
PNY XLR8 PRO sata III ssd = drive
Windows 7 pro sp1 == os

The short answer is that Dual Graphics seems to be good only in theory.  The even shorter answer is that WEI is a useless figure, and you should ignore it.
