It seems that my machine (Dell/Alienware M17xR3) is stuck at P8, causing my gaming performance to be horrible. I'm stuck on deployment with only this laptop to use, so this sucks!!! mad.gif

See:


This wouldn't be so bad if nVidia Inspector would allow me to modify the clocks/voltage, but it has no effect other than to bring the clock speed up to a very low 200/324/405 setting.

I've tried:
- Just about every setting in the BIOS
- Setting Nvidia Control Panel settings to Maximum performance (as opposed to adaptive)
- Windows Power Settings to MAX (GPU power state = MAX, etc.)
- Trying to manually set the pstate via nVidiaInspector command line (doesn't work -- can only set to P8 and no lower)

PS... I'm using the modified BIOS to disable the intel (ie slow) board, forcing full-time 460M use.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
