    I'm running Window 7 Pro using BootCamp.

    I run WEI with BootCamp 3.0 and I got the following scores

    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 860 @ 2.80GHz 7.5
    Memory (RAM) 4.00 GB 7.5
    Graphics ATI Radeon HD 4850 6.9
    Gaming graphics 2298 MB Total available graphics memory 6.9
    Primary hard disk 441GB Free (464GB Total) 5.9


    After installing BootCamp 3.1 I got the following scores

    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 860 @ 2.80GHz 7.5
    Memory (RAM) 4.00 GB 7.5
    Graphics ATI Radeon HD 4850 6.0
    Gaming graphics 2298 MB Total available graphics memory 6.0
    Primary hard disk 441GB Free (464GB Total) 5.9



    Something wrong here . Anyone has this issue ?

    My laptop has ATI 4670 and scores 6.7 on both Graphics and Gaming Graphics. How come ATI 4850 got lower scores???

    Most likely the bootcamp ATI drivers are crap. On my iMac I use drivers from nvidia directly. Don't know if you can use the ATI Drivers from ATI.

    go to the ati drivers site for the MOBILITY radeon chips, then download the 4850 Drivers from there. Worked for me on my 24" with the 4850
