Errr, my GTX680M seems to think it's a 670 ^-^ - Page 3

post #21 of 33
How does this make it "think it's a 670"?

It reads as a 680m. It runs like a 680m. The clocks are the same as a 670, but it doesn't run like a 670 at the same clocks. I'm honestly not understanding the purpose of this thread.

EDIT: I'm fond of mobile gaming laptops, I own a G74. I just don't get this...

Hmmm..Unigine Engine doesn't recognize the card or it's VRAM? Weird. But damn. I wish I had the 1-3k it took to get a gaming laptop that would be good enough to game on high for more than one year.

Performance is strikingly close to the desktop 670 but this is why it cannot realistically compete with a desktop gpu. I applaud your scores but compare it with a desktop card in the same price range. You could sli a pair of 670's for that price.

Is cheaper and I managed to get it cheaper still.

Yes there is a premium but you get the advantage of a smaller portable system.

I mean it's quite happy to run at these sort of clocks smile.gif that it seems to think its in a desktop with a beefy cooler tongue.gif

Lolz im just playing. That is shockingly close/ on par with a stock 670 which is truly impressive. You should volt mod it when the new nbitor comes out tongue.gif thats what I did on my laptop ran much faster.

It is already man, lol.

Gone from 0.985 to 1.075 (0.965 rest load to 1.05V rest load as it drops after 30 seconds of load, we are trying to stop this....)

Man even with the cooling you got I'd be saving this kind of OCing until I had the cash for a new unit. You just never know sometimes. Still that is damn impressive. Why am I not made of money? mad.gif

Right, done a couple of things.

Flashed the P170EM bios onto my P150EM, this unlocked XTU, got hold of a QS 3740QM which means I can run it at 3.9ghz quad turbo (4.1ghhz single) due to it being partially unlocked.

Problem: Running the CPU AND GPU oced causes throttling due to the PSU being overloaded (180W) it's already killed one unit *cough* it was the cheaper spare but still......

I have ordered an Asus W90 230W supply, same connector, rated at 19.5V rather than 19V, but that's close enough and should give me some breathing room thumb.gif
