Dell :: Possible To Use The GPU Client With The 3670?

Apr 12, 2009

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?

Also... Is it ok to run the SMP and GPU client?

every single time i install it it gives me a error message "setup did not find a driver compatible with your currrent hardware or operating system, setup will exit now" .....

Dell :: Underclocked 3670

Dec 3, 2009

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).

Dell :: Ati 3670 Crash In Sps Studio 16

Mar 26, 2009

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?

Aug 23, 2009

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.

Dell :: Difference Between ATI 3670 And 4670?

Oct 24, 2009

I know this question has a rather obvious answer, however I was wondering what kind of games can the ATI 3670 - 512MB graphics card handle?

I was hoping to get the 4670 card however the only option available to me from the Dell websites in the countries near me only have the 3670 listed

Dell :: P8600 Vs T9400, Which Is Better?

Mar 21, 2009

After doing some research and reading,I'm looking to purchase a Latitude E6400 from the outlet.

I can't decide which processor to get. I found two configurations with the same price but different processors.

One has the T9400 and the other has the P8600. Should I go with the T9400 since it has a 6mb cache? If you had to chose , what would you guys consider the best option?

Dell :: 2 P8600's Have Different Videos?

Oct 11, 2009

so a replacement 14z that they sent me no longer can go down to .875v, but only to .9250.

I've tried changing between 32 and 64 bit, between vista and windows 7, and it even between different drivers.

I'm beginning to think that it's the cpu itself, because everything inside should be basically the same.

Dell :: ATi 3670 Vs 4670 (How Much Difference Will Non-gamers Actually Notice)

Oct 27, 2009

Heya im planning on buying my XPS 16 within the next 2months.

Ive seen that there ATi 4670 costs £50 more than the 3670,
and as im currently unemployed £50 is alot of money.

I play games on ps2, not laptop anymore though, so wont be needing graphics card for gaming.

But so would the 4670 actually provide any other advantages in like laptop speed when surfing net and having multiple pages open at same time,
or increase speed when watching movies online? ect

Dell :: M2400: P8600 Vs. T9400

Sep 19, 2008

Image you're using your notebook for things like 3D CAD, photo and video editing and of course for travelling. For my purpose I think the M2400 with its 14,1" monitor should fit perfectly. The perfect combination between mobility and performance.

Now I have to decide between 2 processors. As you know the P8600 isn't available and even Dell couldn't tell me if it will be available in the next weeks.

As you know the M2400 can only be ordered with the following processors:P8600 (2,4 GHz, 25W, 3MB Cache)T9400 (2,53 GHz, 35W, 6MB Cache)

So which one would you choose and why? The price difference is about 100$ (71,4 EUR).

Dell :: Studio 1537 P8600 Idling In 50s

May 18, 2009

Just got a refurb Studio 1537 with a P8600. Using Core Temp, it idles around 50-55 C, and when if it gets to 60 the fan comes on to knock it down to around 45ish, and then it climbs back up.

Should I be using a diff temperature monitor, and also, are those temps high?

Dell :: P8600 Undervolting Results XSPS16

Aug 15, 2009

Since the P8600 is a fairly common CPU on the XPS Studio 13/16 I thought this would be worth posting.

Stability was confirmed at each FID with Orthos for 60 minutes. I chose to disable SuperLFM and IDA. Under 100% load, at 2.4GHz the reported CPU temp dropped almost 12 degrees C. Obviously the difference was less at reduced speeds, but still worthwhile.

I do not notice any difference in the way the computer responds or performs, so as far as I am concerned this is free cooling. I was able to get 4hr 15min on the 9-cell battery with screen brightness @ 30% and low CPU demand (IE8 with wifi) so it probably modestly improves battery life too.

As the title say's,the fastest core duo against the second to slowest choice,as there seem's a fair number of people here who play game's on their M4400's,I thought this might be interesting to some.

Empire total war,I'm sure still carry's out control instruction's much better with the X9100 despite framerates being pretty much identical.....a bit hard to tell as the game AI is soo buggy....

Sony :: Z Line, And P8400 Vs. P8600 With An SSD

May 9, 2009

In looking to pick up a laptop and have it in my hands by late next week, I found that I had to go with the 2.26 GHz processor from the P-series. I was hoping for 2.4 GHz or better.

The reason I was willing to do so was that the notebook is coming equipped with an OCZ Vertex SSD at 120 GB.

My take is that the hard drive is still the bottleneck, so a mere 140 MHz difference in the presence of an SSD isn't going to be felt, and that a 2.4 GHz processor + SSD isn't going to really be snappier compared to a 2.26 GHz one with an SSD for most things.

1) what am i looking at?

2) Can i get rid of it?

3) Do other people here a have similar issue?
