Dell :: Benchmarks For 8600 Vs 7900 GS

Jul 31, 2007

So there have been quite a few posts recently about the 8600GTvs7900GS debacle, so i thought Id post some benchmarks for everyone's viewing I used to compare the GPU's. Ive come to find BF2142 is quite popular in these forums so this is a game i decided to use w/ the benchmarks. I wont say anything else, Ill let you decide on the performance difference between the two

Note- I realize real world performance/driver tweaking can have a great impact on things, these BM's are for your curiosity only

Dell :: 7900 Gsx

Dec 3, 2007

What is a 7900GSX? It's a 7900GS with a GTX BIOS, correct? How do I flash a GTX BIOS to my card? I tried with the 790GTXUN.ROM found on the JLMOD CD, but no luck. I actually ended up BkSODing, so I had to blind-flash back to my GS BIOS. What would be the correct BIOS .rom file to use? Is there something special I need to do? By the way, my card is a Rev.1.

Dell :: 7900 Gs

Oct 27, 2007

I have a 7900gs single pipe and I have had it overclocked for some time (probably a year or a little less) using joker's rom cd. I had it at a medium or so overclock however ...I think 430/600 or something like that so I wasnt really pushing the card too hard. Anyway, I was reading a page on the internet today and started noticing some artifacts and the screen would go blank and then come back on. I immediately turned it off and rebooted normally. I noticed even on all the boot screens it has artifacts and in DOS mode, you can barely read anything because random letters and stuff are everywhere. It will not boot normally but can still boot in safe mode and in VGA mode. I've tried putting it back at stock clocks, reinstalling the drivers, bios, chipset, basically everything but windows itself seeing as it shows artifacts even out of windows. When I try to run ATItool it says there is no video device detected but my device manager shows the 7900 gs running normally. Unfortunately... I have the feeling my card is fried...

Dell :: 7900 GS -- What Do You Think?

Sep 14, 2009

So, I buy a 7900 GS from a forum member (KSMB) who claims the card was barely used and he is selling it because he replaced the card with a 7900GTX.

I paid him his asking price via paypal and almost two weeks later the card arrives... DOA

Now, I own four (4) e1705's and three (3) M1710's and am very familiar with each of the machines and dissasemble them for regular maintenance cleaning. Bottom line is that dropping in a new video card is no chore for me .....

Dell :: 7900 GS Vs 7950

Aug 21, 2007

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a 1710 within the next week or so. Yeah, I know the 1730 is coming out but I really can't wait much longer and besides, the 1730 is by far one of the biggest and ugliest models I have seen Dell come out with. Sorry for that little rant but anyway, back to the main question:

There is a $350 price difference between the 7900 GS and the 7950. I have searched the forums and found a couple of relavant threads but I wanted some people who own both of these models to readdress this issue and let me know if you like the model you have or do you wish you would have gone with a different GPU.

Dell :: Baked A 7900 Go GTX

Jun 22, 2009

So a friend of mine has a Inspiron E1705 with a 7900 Go GTX. His original 7900 Go had a heatpipe failure so we picked up the GTX as a replacement.

Well, the other day, the GTX began to artifact like crazy and wouldn't run the drivers anymore at all. Seemed clear to me that we had a BGA solder joint failure.

So, I removed the card from the notebook and baked the damn thing at 425F for about 10 mins.

And now it works perfectly again. (dunno if it'll last, but hope so)

Dell :: Nvidia Geforce GO 7900 GS

Mar 8, 2008

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705, Core 2 dou, 2 GB Ram, Very powerful laptop. I have an ATI Video card in it that I've been trying hard to upgrade to a Geforce. I bought 6 till with no luck at all, I bought all of them off ebay, the last one was a couple days ago, when I got it, I installed it and everything was working perfectly, I was so happy cuz this is the first one that actually works, after 1 hour of using it, red flickers started appearing on the screen, I restarted, tried different drivers, tried placing it again.. no luck at all . Now I have different colored lines and blinking pixels all over the screen, the background changes colors.. yellow, red, green.. and its not just on windows.. Bios, safe mode, everywhere.. I put my old ATI back and everything is working fine. I'm planning to send it back again to the seller, I attached some pics. I have a 90 w adapter but I dont think its a heating or power problems.

Dell :: Coolest Way To Overclock 7900 GS

Oct 21, 2007

When I just had my XPS M1710 I flashed it with the "gsx" rom and stock gtx speeds...

Now I flashed my card with the unlocked roms (1,24V) but I think is running hotter now on the GS stock speeds...?

What should I do? I don't play games but I like the performance gain in windows Vista. I was thinking to flash my card again with the "oldfashion GSX rom"...
What would you do?

I just want to keep a cool system....

Dell :: XPS M1710 7900 GS Mobility OC

Dec 5, 2008

I am attempting to OC my Mobility 7900 GS.

The stock settings on the clock speeds in ntune are reported at 375/507.

I recently updated to the 180.something drivers from nvidia, the latest ones available, hearing the these new drivers in combination with RivaTuner 2.20 can now OC this card without having to flash the BIOS.

After installing new drivers, my RivaTuner would not allow me to change the settings... I would change the 2 clock speeds on core and memory, then press apply, and ok - then they would just go back to the default settings immediately.

Dell :: Dead 7900 Gs In My E1705

Dec 8, 2008

I have a dell inspiron e1705 with a nvidia geforce go 7900 gs gpu installed. I was playing call of duty 4 on saturday and just after 5 mins of game play blue lines go across the screen and the screen goes black. The audio was still playing. I manually shut down the comp and restarted. When the dell screen came up after restarting orange and blue lines were visible. I could see the Microsoft loading bar but after that disappeared the screen went black and I could not log into windows. I downloaded the latest driver from nvidia, installed it, and restarted, but the same thing happened, Microsoft loading bar and then black screen. After about a minute of the black screen, a blue screen pops and says windows is shutting down form a hardware error to prevent damage and it also says something about a failure of the display driver.

Anyway, heres all the things I did so far to try to fix my problem;
-did a system restore to 2 days ago which didn't solve the problem.
-ran a memory diagnostics test and passed..
-ran a scan disk, no problems.
-uninstalled the video card and reinstalled with the latest driver which still did nothing.

Dell :: 8600 Won't Start, Probably My Fault

Feb 3, 2009

The bottom plastic was developing a series of cracks so I bought a new base on eBay.

I basically had to take the entire laptop apart (per the 8600 Service Manual, including video card and processor cooling fan, etc) and I put it back together with a new base...

Dell XPS 8600 :: USB Drivers Are Not Working

Apr 5, 2013

My USB drivers are no longer working.  I tried updatinga ll the drivers, the rollback is greyed out, along with uninstall and disable.  I have tried a system restore and that did nothing also.  I can no longer use my digital camera, GPS or printer.  Interesting that my mouse and keyboard are hooked up to USB's and they work fine.  How can I get all my USB drivers to work?

Dell :: 7950 Debates (7900 GSX Owners In Here)

Aug 22, 2007

I haven't put in my 7950 gtx yet because when I threw the one in that I had here it was DOA so I had to send back to the seller to replace, so the new one should be here in a week. Anyways here is the deal . .

Everyone is claiming since the 7900 GSX pulls such great scores in 3dmark05 (simular to the 7950) it is about the same. Here is the difference. When yall run 3dmark it defaults to a low resolution test. So here is an example. Im pulling low 9k with my 7900 GSX at default resolution. So I got a full version serial number for 3dmark05 and switched the resolution to 1440x900 and ran the tests with that. This should really show the memory difference and power of the better card.

The 7900GSX pulled 4262 at that resolution.

From what im finding online the 7950GTX at 1440x900 resolution pulls around 6700 at that resolution . If you have a 7950GTX test it out and post that instead.

Im sure at 1920x1200 resolution the differences would become even more apparant. So there is the final answer.

High resolution gaming (native resolution on our lappys) will show a big difference.

Dell :: What Memory/Core Is Realistic For Go 7900 Gs

Nov 13, 2007

I am in the process of overclocking my card (thanks to the help of my brother and this website) and I am wondering what exactly is a good number to go by for these cards? I am currently at 510/540 and am having no problems but im paranoid and dont want to mess anything up, that being said I would like to get the best/safest "bang" I can out of this card...

Also, is their a program for Vista that allows you to permanetly keep these settings, I cant find such a thing on AtiTool...

Dell :: M1730 Benchmarks Please

Oct 8, 2009

i was wondering if anyone has the dell m1730 can run some benchmarks.

it doesn't matter if it is stocked overclocked or whatever.

just post up your system specs and if you are overclocked (if so please state your clocks if you do not wish to give out your clocks, just say ""max overclock")

if you don't know what to benchmark, here's some stuff you can do.

also can you please tell us your settings on the game when you run it.

i have been searching but it's dead and the owner's lounge is way to big to search every page. it doesn't matter what gpu/cpu you have. as long as you state what you have.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Benchmarks!

Mar 9, 2009

I just benchmarked my system and i originally got 2,000 with 3DMark 06. But after installing new drivers i got 4,857! And in PCMark 05 i got 4,893, although i need to re-test that one because it was lower than i should have gotten i think and

i installed new drivers for my pc like i said. But for 3DMark 06 getting 4,857 is much better than the reviews which it got around 4,200 i believe.
