G74SX with GTX560M (3GB), help? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Don't take this as absolute fact as I'm not sure if it's the case, but while reading through some Alienware forums (I own a m11x) I was reading about the gtx560m being neutered in some other gaming laptop, it just might have been the asus. For your sake, I hope not, but could be worth investigating...?

Right, I'll do that.

The other thing I am going to try, is going to town today to buy a copy of DiRT 3, run the benchmark and directly compare it to http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...M.48313.0.html

(84 on High, 23 on Ultra).

If I get similar after the reinstall, then I know I'm going the right direction, if I am only getting for example... 60 on High and 13 on Ultra, then it's time for a phone call to ASUS so they can give me an un-neutered version, if they can't. Refund! (Thanks to the lovely service by Amazon)

Right, I am on the verge of calling ASUS now. I looked on NotebookCheck and the GTX460M gets an average of 42.1 FPS on Ultra.

With me on Ultra, I dont even get that and I have a GTX 560M.

Even after a reinstall, I see no performance increase.

After Running the Far Cry 2 benchmark in DX9, I get 46 FPS average, in DX10, the same old 33.2 FPS

Is there something I'm missing
