NB Overclock: Performance test

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
It seems that some people forget or don't want to overclock their NB. I don't see why you wouldn't because it can give you a great performance gain in some programs.
In this thread i will show you what the effects are of overclocking your NB.

Apps used: 3DMark11 and MaxxMem²
For my tests i will use the same CPU overclock (may be a few Mhz more/less because of FSB frequency) and the same overclock on my GTX460. My RAM will also run at stock frequency and timings.

Where'e that "huge" difference? I thought "huge" means "huge" not "slight" because i see here only slight performance boost :/

As you can see the graphics tests are pretty much equal. The only real diffrence is the cpu test.

let's see a ppd test, i think memory bandwidth has a noticeable effect on folding

Hmm ok, i will do that tomorrow. Didn't think of that.
I think you won't see a big diffrence on SMP folding, but on bigadv it's possible tough i can't test that.
