In Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista, we had a feature called Windows Experience Index. Windows Experience Index feature was first introduced with Vista to help users easily measure their computer performance without having to use advanced benchmarking tools.
The Windows Experience Index feature basically rates your PC on five key components: Processor, Memory (RAM), Graphics, Gaming graphics, and primary hard disk. Each piece of these five key hardware in your PC gets its own score called a subscore.
The base score indicates the lowest individual subscore. The feature was a craze among geeks back in the days and there were many workarounds and tools to improve WEI score.

Windows Experience Index is not part of Windows 10 (not present in Windows 8.1 as well). If you love the feature and want to get Windows Experience Index in Windows 10, you need to use third-party utilities.
There are basically two free software out there to assess your computer and get Windows Experience Index in Windows 10. The one is WinAero WEI Tool and the other is Chris PC Win Experience Index. Both the tools support 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 10.
