    Yeah it sounds like it. We need to start a thread that some Dell guys can look at. This is not normal for those cards.

    What we need is someone to run some benches out of the box without changing ANYTHING other than turning it on and installing the benchmarking software. The OP already admitted that this was with stock ATI drivers that were released *today*.

    I doubt it. i7-720QM is the culprit. Only ~3k CPU score. You need 920XM + OC to hit 19k.

    I just finally got home after being on the road to the spine doctor for 10 hours. Preliminary results are similar.

    3D mark Vantage - P12578
    Old System 4870s - P11427

    Increase - 10%

    One thing I noticed, which is disconcerting is that my CPU score is a good bit lower. I might just need to swap the CPU for the one in the other system before it goes back.

    Heaven 2.0 - 53.1 fps
    Old System 4870s - 48.7 fps

    Increase - 9.3%

    Those are the basic synthetics so far. I haven't finished moving my steam folder over. Will have Crysis, Lost Coast, and Batman up soon, as well as the details of my settings.

    Bottom line, we're looking at about a 10% increase and an additional of DirectX 11. ( Heaven with Tessellation looks amazing on here, but I'm still playing with those settings ). This is in line with my expectations. I was expecting about 54-55 on Heaven, but this might be because of my CPU. We'll see.

    Stay tuned for more.

    Your right, other people with similiar specs are getting +/- 100 points using 3d 06 and vantage, so my computers fine its just a better processor will def help with OC and good drivers.

    DUDE, 920 vs 720, i loose big time. That is the culprit, sorry processor equates to +-5-6k plus double the ram and speed of it.

    @Achilleus,
    Could you check if you have a 5% OC' enabled in BIOS. That would be my guess. Even with no OC' 920XM is a huge boost in 3DMark06.
