AMD Radeon HD 6320 Laptop Overlock help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright, this may be something i'm attempting to achieve and won't be able to. I've followed old guides, and new guides, and I simply can't unlock my HP Pavilion G Series laptop's GPU. Reason being, I just purchased GW2. I understand my graphics unit is a low-end, but with EVERYTHING turned off and turned down lowest in GW2, i'm getting 8-15 fps. Forget about player events. I've got about a month or two until I can build myself a rig, so for the meantime, i'm looking to overclock my laptop to achieve a few higher frames. I just need some general guidance on how I can do this.

P.S. I've used Mobility Modder and downloaded the latest driver to attempt to unlock it for overclocking, however, when I open MSI Afterburner, I cannot change ANY core clocks. It's all locked. Can't adjust anything.

6320 is a 64 bit and sometimes 32 bit card, thats why it stinks. 6370 or above is needed to game correctly. Overclock won't help if the memory bandwidth is already crippled.

Ur running the Zacate platform, which is horrible for gaming as the CPU's are low clocked dual core K8's essentially.

Ah, so essentially i'm screwed? Lol. Basically stuck with super low frames? I assumed it was the memory bandwidth. Reason being, I can literally set everything to medium settings and STILL get 5-15 fps. High just drops it to a few fps. So my thinking was the CPU and GPU aren't allowing enough flow between them, that's why I assumed if I overclocked the CPU a touch and the VRAM, it may get me to a comfortable 25-30fps lowest settings. That's all I needed. So just to recap, your thinking is there's nothing I can do? I'm stuck with it?

There is no way you can double performance on any gpu with an overclock. Also, with a laptops limited cooling ability, you would be seeing crashes very often even if you got it working.

Ah, I see. Well, I don't believe posting a reply to a different topic is acceptable, but where would I ask about installing Linux on my PS3 for playing GW2? I've heard it's possible, but I want to get some comments from others on thinking, or if they've done it for other games.
