    It's not about feelings, I'm curious to see how big is the difference between the Pro and MR 5870. If the performance is similar we should see 7.8-8k on the GPU Score.
    CPU is irrelevant for the GPU Score, that's why we don't even need to look at the CPU and Total scores. 3DMark06 on the other hand is greatly affected by the CPU.

    The combined score IS a product of all the tests performed on the CPU and GPU, amongst other things.
    Are you telling me that if the GPU score for the M7820 turned out to be 50K, his total score wouldn't be affected at all? LOL

    Nice! Now that's more like the MR5870. +- 100-200pts is nothing. 7.56k is only 200-300pts away from the 480M which costs almost 3 times more.
    Now I'm really impressed with the cooling system.
    73C max is very very impressive.
    Thanks for posting, Knight!
    Looks like M7820 is indeed an uncut MR5870.
    I'd run some gaming benchmarks and CAD as well.
    But for now, that's a good start.
    I'd rep all involved but have given too much today and the system doesn't let me :(

    So the 3d mark vantage score he posted was pcmark, and there isn't anything wrong with the firepro?

    Technically, I did post it as PCMark Vantage. Either no one noticed or your guys gave me more credit than I deserved and figured it was just a typo.

    That's right and to me it looks like a true MR5870. We'll have to check some gaming benchmarks to be sure, but I'm optimistic. What puzzles me is the relatively low GPU temps for that card. I expected to see 80-85C during Vantage and 95C+ (at least for the memIO sensor) during Furmark but Knight did both and got max 73C in Vanatage and 80C in Furmark.
    Bewildering....:confused:

    ...and noone rep'd me for my insightful review a good number of pages back either. :D j/k; it read "I have a review for ya; this just in. HP bit off more than it can chew with this 8740w offering...". ;)

    @Rampage,

    Could you please run Vantage once more, even though the system won't let you see the scores if you're using a trial version, but keeping the HWMonitor or HWinfo32 (or any other temp monitoring tool that can show the max temps, not just the current ones) running in the background and post the CPU and GPU max temps?
