ATI Fire Pro M7740. AMD ATI FirePro M7740 is a high quality professional graphics adapter for notebooks. It supports certified drivers for professional CAD (computer modeling) and DCC applications. In addition to the fact that these programs will run without any problems, the driver and BIOS are also optimized for OpenGL execution and have a number of professional features in the chip. The FirePro M7740 core is based on the Mobility Radeon HD 4860 (RV740 architecture). The RV740 is made in 40nm technology and offers 640 (or 128 5-D) shaders that support DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.1. Speaking of graphics memory, the card supports up to 1GB GDDR5. Thanks to GDDR5, the relatively small 128-bit bus width shouldn’t be a bottleneck. The ATI FirePro/FireGL M7740 was first used in the Dell Precision M6400 mobile station as an alternative to the already existing Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M. The FirePro M7740 in the Dell Precision M6400 was compared to the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M in the HP 8730w. The M7740 outperformed in 8 scores (ugnx-01, tcvis-01, sw-02, proe-04, maya-02, ensight-03, 3dsmax-04) for a total score of 75 vs. 63. The M7740 should have better performance compared to with FirePro V7750. Like the Mobility Radeon HD 4860, the Mobility FirePro M7740 has a UVD 2 video processor for HD video decoding. (BlueRay is characterized by the ability to decode two streams at the same time).
