    I wouldn't trust the Windows experience score as a good measure of performance.

    What do you mean? CPUs don't have benchmarks on the box. ;)

    You could use CPU-Z or ThrottleStop to find out what your CPU is clocked at. Maybe WPrime for a performance comparison? This doesn't help though because it sounds like you already installed the patches. Generally speaking, the performance benefits aren't typically noticeable by a human user and only benefits in specific cases.

    I don't see a "Windows Patch" fixing bulldozer. It will take a whole new CPU structure to do that.
