Is it possible to use the GPU client with the 3670? I need a driver of 8.7 or later but I currently have 8.512. And since ATI doesn't support their mobile GPUs... is there a mod that will allow me to run F@H GPU client?
I recently installed ATI Tray Tools on my SXPS 1640, and found out that the clock speed of my GPU is set to 400Mhz. This seems sort of low, because on AMD's website it says that the Mobility Radeon 3670 has a core clock speed of 680Mhz.
1.) Would it be safe (or possible) to raise the clock speed back up to 680Mhz?
2.) Did Dell do this on purpose to prevent overheating?
Oh, and I'm currently using the Catalyst 9.11 driver (modded with MobilityModder).
should I buy the Dell XPS 1640 (P8600, ATI 3670). I intend to use the Dell XPS 1640 for web surfing, watching movies, and play some light games online. Would my Dell XPS 1640 with ATI 3670 will have these problems like overheating and throttling?
After reading those horrible stories about XPS 1640 like overheatinga and throttling). I am not so sure about buying them.
I've owned my studio xps 1640 for about a month now. Had zero issue with it. Yesterday, while doing some browsing, listening to a net cast etc.
I was notified by Vista that my card had failed and was reconnecting? This did not work and brought up a blue screen telling me that if this was the first time this had happened to reboot (which it then did anyhow) so I did not have time to catch the rest.
I went to Dell's site and Dl'd every bios,chip set and urgent driver update they had. I tried the Ati update but like others have mentioned it did not seem to take. I read that someone had this card fail on their first Studio. Is this behavior a forerunner of a critical malfunction?
so tomorrow my friend will put his laptop together, (he will get the ati 3670 card, he could get the 4670 (if he paid some extra money) but he is not some super-gamer and said he could live with 3670 without any problem.
i knew that ati 3670 512mb and nvidia 9600M gt 512mb was pretty similar, but ati 3670 performs actaully better, (quite much better).
I just sold out my three week old macbook pro 15 unibody on ebay....useless filthy piece of crap...utterly over-priced block of aluminium.
And now I am typing this on my DELL studio xps 1640 .I have a simple question, Will it be extremely risky if I try to overclock my gpu, ati mobility radeon hd3670 512mb gdrr3? Also, I am a gamer, but not one of those
who faints if the fps drops by a point. I mostly play games like gta san andreas, cod4, world of warcraft, fear, soldier of fortune, assassin's creed, prince of persia, diablo, half-life, far cry , mafia, nfs etc. Is it necessary to overclock?
I ran the 3Dmark06 test and I got 5345 on my SXPS 1640. I have heard of people getting much high. Am I missing something? I have the 4560Ati graphics and the T9550 Cpu. I ran it with it on the High performance power setting. Any help would be nice
I'm scoring about 1080 or so on my 1330 on 3Dmark06 with the nvidia 8400m gs motherboard. T 7500 cpu and 3 gig ram. Vista 32 bit. Right now I've got the 179.28 video driver, the others i've tried are similar..
Are these typical results? If I'm underperforming, what should I look at for improvements?..
OS: Windows 7 64 bit Processor: t8500 Video Card: 8600m gt Ram: 4 gigs Notebook: Vostro 1500
3dmark06 score: 2300.
I'm pretty sure this is abnormal, what do you guys think is the issue? I tried several drivers: some 19x.xx drivers and some 18x.xx drivers, of which I'm currently using 185.85 dox. The speeds are all around 2200-2400. Default settings used in 3dmark06.
Here is my latest score. This score is different from my first as my first run involved me goofin up driver crap and not having physics card installed.... Not that the card matter, but the scores are different.
My first test was 6506 (sorry I dont have a pic)
Here is my score with plain dell drivers, no overclock, just plain old sli 8700's... 7625
Theres not a doubt in my mind with different drivers and over clock ability, that the 8700m GT sli is not a bad vid card.... People have been stating theyve got pretty good game performace... Best part is, the upgrade for the 1730 can only get better! ehehe
I must be dumb, but if anyone comes across other 8700m GT drivers that can do SLi, I would really like to try them Prog
I have a Inspiron E1705 GO 7900 GS graphics card Intel Core 2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz Vista 32 bit
Ok so here is the deal, I can't overclock my card with atitool...I try running it as administrator, everything, and it wont run properly for me. Anyways can you give me some ideas to improve this free? Or help with Atitool.
After fooling around with various websites and downloading multiple versions. I got it to work....i got the core overclocked to 570...and every time i click the (+) button to up the memory, my computer freezes for maybey 2 seconds tops, and it doesnt budge at all.....
I'm wondering if I am the only one, but I had 2 SXPS16, an original and a replacement,
both were shipped with A08 bios, both seemed pretty hot to the touch like everyone talked about (still not unbearable, just a little uncomfortable) but this new one that was shipped with A10 bios seems way more manageable,
so manageable i don't even think about heat anymore, in fact it has been on my lap for the past hour and a half and no more hot than my 3 year old toshiba
Ok so my screen is faulty. The colors are messed up (Windows folders are green, snow is blue, etc). Dell (India) is being stupid is having trouble verifying my problem.
So I need your help to prove the them (or maybe to me) that I am telling the truth (or am totally crazy).
Here is a link to a picture.
It is my current background on my SXPS16, M1530, and PS3/Samsung HDTV. On both the M1530 and Samsung the rocky part in the bottom right is a definitive blue (with the slightest bit of red). On the my SXPS16 it is a definitive purple. As seen in these screen grabs below (hopefully)...
Now obviously viewing on my SXPS16 and M1530 every picture looks about the same. My question to you is this, on your SXPS16 (WLED 1080p) is the SXPS mountain picture purple-ish or something else and is the M1530 picture bluer? Are the folders in the SXPS folders picture green and faded or something else and are the folders in the M1530 folder picture more manila colored?
It is my understanding that the windows folders are manila colored like real manila folders... I could be wrong and they could naturally have a green tint but that seems unlikely.
