    They got ~3:30 (or 3:50 they never clarified) with the IGP enabled: http://forum.notebookreview.com/ali...ady-reviewed-hardwarehaven-9.html#post7398157

    Did you guys see what a monster the M18x looks like compared to the R2? Check out the dude's pics, the speaker grill on the M18x looks like it dwarfs the R2...I better buy a back brace asap.

    Someone plz do a vantage run for us. Heading out to the gym to get ready for the beast tomorrow, I think I'll need it. :D Hope to see some benchmarks when I get back.

    Seems very close to the 990x and 485m sli in a x7200. It will be interesting to see some overclocked scores as well.

    For those unaware, the benchmark thread is now open and jfbrea has been kind enough to supply us with some initial benchmarks.

    Looks promising :D
