    Notebookcheck reviewed an 8740w with an older GPU driver. (Thanks for including the GPU driver number!)
    This contrast illustrates that for workstation applications, many GPU driver performance improvements are not related to 3DMark.

    ok so here are the results i paid $150 for to find out.

    Alot of it means nothing to me, as i'm not really hot on screen info. but i hope it means something to someone!

    I was just given a lot of figures. there is a NTSC value in some of them also, but it seems they did not want to do it with the i1d2 thing quoting 'its not accurate', so i left it out.

    Sio

    Code:
    DC2 Specifications:
    
    HP SPECS
    
    Contrast Ratio 800:1 typical
    Brightness 210 nit typical
    Backlight RGB LED
    Viewing Angle ±89° Horizontal, ±89° Vertical (typical)
    Technology Type 30-bit In-Plane Switching (IPS)
    Color Depth 10-bits/color
    Display Colors Over 1 billion colors (native mode)
    
    Color Gamut Coverage CIE1931 (x,y) CIE 1976(u',v')
    NTSC 109% 129%
    AdobeRGB 114% 127%
    sRGB 154% 148% 
    ==========================================
    ==========================================
    
    The meter was a special Spyder 3 (We think!) based one, used for HDTV stats and calibration (>20,000:1 ratios)
    The second meter used for running contrasts is used for HDTV measurements (>200,000:1 ratios)
    
    Machines Age is listed now, from the day it arrived.
    Changed figure from the I1D2 meter, to Battery figures like they *should* be.
    Illumination: This is the amount of the screen that is at the same brightness. this is a 90 second test on pure white.
    Battery readings only have a CIE 1976 Value.
    Running contrasts are done natively. that is without the white/black values being written down. it is a 90 second test.
    They are typical values users can expect to enjoy in everyday situations.
    (I don't know why they are different, they just are)
    
    Laptops were tested in this order:
    
    5000M
    7820M
    2800M
    3800M
    2800M TN
    
    All laptops had been on for 10 minutes prior to the test with no blanking, Max Performance settings.
    All laptops were using the latest drivers from HP.
    For Battery Test, laptop had been cold booted from battery and left on for 10 minutes, no blanking etc.
    The after blanking test, was done by leaving the lid closed for 5 minutes, then reading as the screen comes back on.
    
    IF there is a +xx% this is the amount over profile the DC2 offers.

    The next set of results on the ATI are done via the HDTV meter, with 10bit enabled.
    
    This sensor is an array of 32 sensors across the screen, and it runs a special colour programme, which
    the meter then reads and makes the figures. it's also with a high gamma setup i believe.
    I can't offer any more than this, as the information about this meter is not available as it's their
    companies one. This test took 11 minutes to complete.

    updated with correct figures.

    I'll get on the benches next week now my ICD diamond paste has arrived, so i can swap out the cpus.

    IMHO, this thread should be made sticky, it's too important to be gone from the first page.

    @Siorah,
    Did you run the combined CPU+RAM Prim95?

    Ok, here are my results:

    System specs: 840QM, FirePro M7820, 16GB 1333, DC, etc.

    Ambient 27.5C

    All the tests done with forced fan!

    Before the cooling mod:

    Prime95: - 86C
    Furmark: - 86C

    Furmark+Prime95: N/A

    With the cooling mod:

    Prime95: 79C

    Furmark: 80C

    Furmark+Prime95: CPU: 90C, GPU: 85C

    run tests for 5 minutes - on furmark, please if you hit temps of 95c or above, end them. put ~95c on the results. Ensure you have RealTemp and GPU-Z during these, so you have a good result.

    For Fan, follow the HWINFO32 thread to get this software, and run the forced fan tests.

    @Voltherd,

    Wow, those temps are very low for 25C ambient. Before the first re-pasting (CPU+GPU) I was hitting 90C on Prime95 alone and almost the same on Furmark alone. Wouldn't even dare to run both together. After applying OCZ Freeze I was getting 86C in Prime95 and Furmark separately. Still wouldn't run them both. Only with the HS mod I can safely stay under 80C in Prime95 and Furmark, still, only when run separately and always with the forced fan.
    I don't think a 840QM runs that much warmer than 820QM...
    Also, what version of Furmark and what test did you run? 70C in Furmark?? Wow!
    Weird...

    Furmark version was 1.8.2. I was running full screen, 1920x1200. This was in the "Stability Test" mode. Should that be "Xtreme Burning Mode"? I've never used furmark before and there were no further instructions here.

    The GPU temperatures in both Furmark and GPU-Z appeared to be identical but I was reporting from GPU-Z.

    I can rerun the tests if that will help.
