Dell :: M6500 1600 Mhz And 1333 Mhz Memory

Apr 20, 2010

After reading the m6500 discussion thread it sounds like the consensus is that 1600 mhz memory makes no performance difference. But then a lot of folks seem to have configured their machines with 1600 memory and the below review suggests that the memory will help.

http://www.legitreviews.com/article/842/1/

So to have this fully hashed out, I think we need to answer the below questions:
1) If you order the extreme processor does the BIOS recognize the 1600 mhz memory?
2) Even if it does recognize it does it make a difference?
3) Why did people with the extreme processor order the 1600 mhz memory?
4) Can we fill in the WEI scores for memory using 4 and 8 GB of both 1333 and 1600 memory with the extreme processor?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: ThinkPad T520 RAM Clock Speed Stuck At 1333?

Jun 7, 2014

I'm having trouble figuring out why on my T520, after upgrading from 8GB/1333Mhz to 16GB/1600Mhz Crucial RAM, Speccy/CPU-Z still says they're running at around ~660Mhz x 2 = ~1330?
 
My specs are as follows:
 
For my T520 (4239-CTO) I have...
 
Processor: Intel Core i7-2860QM 2.5Ghz
RAM: Crucial 16GB (8GB x 2) DDR3-1600
GPU: Intel HD 3000 / NVIDIA QUADRO NVS 4200M
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 (w/latest updates)
 
After Googling for a while and from looking around here I've read nothing that says I shouldn't be able to run at 1600Mhz especially considering my processor supports that speed officially. Another post on this topic (not for the T520 specifically) mentioned that i7's contain the memory controller within itself. So... am I being thwarted by software settings in the BIOS or within my operating system?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 To Drive Dual 2560 X 1600 Displays?

Jan 25, 2009

I am about to make a purchase on the Studio XPS 16..

However, my main issue is would it be able to drive my 2 Dell 3007WFP-HC displays?..

I am aware that the Studio XPS 16 has a HDMI and DisplayPort built it.. Provided I am able to get all the conversion cables, could this laptop drive my 2 30" monitors at their native (2560 x 1600) resolution?..

Apple :: Macbook 15" With Radeon 1600

Jun 15, 2009

I have a chance to buy a 15" MB Pro for $1150. It has the following:

2.33GHz
4GB RAM
320GB HDD
DVD+/-R/RW DL Super Drive
802.11n WiFi
illuminated keyboard
256MB Radeon 1600
Applecare through Jan. 2010.

I have a pre-2009 17" MB Pro now with a 2.5Ghz CPU and 512MB 8600 video.

I just want a 2nd laptop that is smaller than the 17" for me and the misses to use. I will probably use Lightroom on it, iTunes, iPhoto, and Internet mostly and want to run the occasional game (nothing to resource intensive).

I just don't want to pay $2500 for a unibody. I would get a plain jane MB but I want a video card.....

Sony :: New Z: 1600 Vs. 1920 (quality, Viewing Angles Etc.)

Mar 20, 2010

huge threads dedicated to new Vaio Z (and read more than half of them) but couldn't find any useful information about 1920x1080 screen. I saw 1600x900 model in store and wasn't impressed at all (TN simply can't get better than average IMO)

Is there any information about panel manufacturer/type? Does anybody have proper pics showing its viewing angles (comparison with 1600 model will be even better)?

Don't post about resolution/DPI scaling/small fonts, this thread is devoted to panels' quality only.

Dell :: M6500 What RAM

Feb 20, 2010

I'm planing to buy a M6500 with 4GB in 2 DIMMS and buy 2 more DIMMS somewhere else.

Also what type of memory should I be looking on Ebay the 204pin or 200pin?

Dell :: M4500 Vs M6500

Apr 19, 2010

I am in the process of specing a new laptop for engineering work. I will do a little bit of CAD, but mainly processor intensive mathematical simulations in Java, Matlab, or Scilab.

I am considering purchasing either the m4500 or m6500. I don't think I will mind lugging around the m6500. The positive attributes, as I see them, of the two machines are shown below.

Other than that they seem like they are on par, though I can't help but think the m6500 will be able to better handle the cooling requirements of their components than the m4500. What does everyone think? Is it even fair to compare the two?

m6500 pro's:
Graphics power (I would get ATI graphics)
1600 mhz memory supported
4 RAM slots
USB 3.o .....

Sony :: Success Connecting Vaio Z To 2560 X 1600 External Monitor

Aug 2, 2009

I just submitted an order for a new vaio z and while waiting for it I thought I'd look into getting a nice external monitor for home use. After reading through the forum, I can't find any report of a vaio z owner successfully attaching an external monitor with a resolution of more than 1920 x 1200 (due to no dvi-dl compatibility). Specifically, I was hoping to get a 30" 2560 x 1600 monitor.

Is it safe to conclude that it is impossible to connect a 2560 x 1600 external monitor to my new vaio z?

Dell :: Why Can't My M6500 Decide What's The First Drive?

May 5, 2010

I have a problem I've never had with any stationary computer (I have never had a dual hard drive laptop before...):

I have one 320 meg drive which I use as little as possible in drive bay one and another, larger drive in drive bay two.

An expensive program I use for work is registered to the drive in bay one, and I can't get a new license, so I would like it to last as long as possible, which is why I only use it there as a kind of dongle.

For the software licensing stuff to work it has to be seen as the first drive by Windows, but not necessarily the one I boot from

Dell :: Precision M6500, SCAM Or Communication In ?

Dec 23, 2009

How do you order i7 920 processors ? It doesn't give me such option on the website (all it shows in processor option is "Mobile Precision M6500 Silver Base")

so I called dell sales team to find out which processor is there, and on the website it shows "Up to Intel CoreTM i7- 920XM Quad Core Extreme processors" so i thought it might be as the only option and goes as standard),

they told me that m6500 is only available with i7 820 (1.73hz) and the machine is upgradable to i7 920. heh ? seems like scam

Meantime I can't choose 2 HDD with 500GB, as primary only ATA and secondary is only SATA.

Dell :: Upgrading (boxed) M6400 To M6500

Dec 3, 2009

I've just recieved the M6400 covet edition. Dell has given me the choice to return it boxed and get a full refund. I can then order the new M6500, however, I will need to pay at least 750 Euro extra for the faster processor and graphic card.

QX9300 to Core I7 920xm
FX 3700M to FX 3800M

The rest of the specs are the same. Is the worth extra money to upgrade for a computer that will be 8 x faster than the current M6400?

I have to admit though than my hands are itching badly to unbox the m6400.

Dell :: Where Can I Find Out What Docking Stations Are Compatible With My M6500?

May 10, 2010

I have tried looking at Dell's webpage, but couldn't find any lists over compatible docking stations. Not to mention that when trying to "buy" another identical computer dockings are never mentioned in the "Buy accessories for your Dell" subpage. I have seen a few cheap, used docking stations on the web, but I don't know if they will work. This is the one I can get really cheap:

Would that work on my Preceision M6500? It's for my second and third office (a.k.a. my wife's pet shop and our cabin by the sea), so I need two dockings. And this way I can save 80 % of the cost!

For some stupid reason the M6500 has no SPDIF output, and I see that there is one on this docking. But I don't care if that works or not, I only use SPDIF at home, and I have an USB sound card with SPDIF there.

HP Pavilion Dv4t 1600 OS/Software :: Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family Driver Update

Sep 3, 2011

I've been having trouble updating my graphics driver. I have a HP Pavillion dv4t 1600 CTO laptop. My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. My driver device is a Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family, and driver version is 8.15.10.1883 from 8/27/2009. I've been trying to install the lastest from Intel which is 15.17.19.64.2869. However, when attempting to  update drivers I receive an error message:
 
"The driver being installed is not vaildated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the cmputer manufacturer. Set up will exit."
 
This leads me to the HP website were I attempt to find a suitable update. However, when using the HP updater or manual search, I end with the same type of driver for graphics, sound, and chipset. My problem is: I don't know which one needs to be updated. 
 
I play World of Warcraft, and I receive the message "Your driver device is out of date". That could mean any of them, so while using the Intel Driver Update Utility, none of my drivers appeared. And every time I try to update via HP, it appears that nothing has changed. I'll try to provide as much detail as possible and hope to hear back soon about my problem. Attached below as well are screenshots from the dxdiag window.
 
Product name: HP Pavillion dv4t-1600 CTO

Dell :: M6500 For VMware + Visual Studio 2008/2010: A Good Idea?

Mar 28, 2010

I'm looking to purchase a powerful notebook for my development needs. I use MS Visual Studio 2008 (in a VMware virtual machine), currently running on my DELL Precision T7400 desktop workstation (Dual Intel Xeon X5482, 3.20GHz / 32GB RAM / 4 x 300GB SAS HD with 15,000rpm). This thing is a pleasure to work with, everything just flies, even when multiple virtual machines are running at same time.

In next months I need to spend some time developing and testing at my customer's site. Now I need something comparable to my T7400 in means of performance, but portable. My first idea was, of course, a M6500. It seems to be a very powerful beast. However, until now I have no experience with such "mobile workstations". Can this thing really deliver what it promises?

However, under his windows experience score - he gets 5.9 score for memory operations while I just get a 5.1. I can't believe that a couple of hundred mhz can result in such a drastic difference.

Is there something optimized for his system but not for mine?

HP EliteBook 8540w :: Identifying Correct Memory Slot For RAM Upgrade To Enable Dual Channel Memory

Jan 12, 2015

I just purchased a used Elitebook 8540w with i7 quad core and four memory slots (I love it!).  It is running 64 bit Windows 7 Professional  It came with one 4gb memory module and I purchased an additional 4gb module to bring total RAM to 8gb.  
 
I have the HP document that shows for two 4gb memory modules, one should be in memory slot 1 and the other in memory slot 3 for correct functioning of dual channel memory.  All set right?
 
Not quite.  In the Elitebook 8540w, the primary memory slots under the keyboard are clearly labeled "1" and "2"  However, the expansion memory slots on the underside of the chassis are also clearly labeled "1" and "2"  Opps!  There is no "3" and there is no "4"  In which of the unfilled three slots do I install the second 4gb module for correct functioning of dual channel memory?

Dell :: Memory Upgrade

Nov 6, 2009

I have a 2.5 year old E1705 notebook. I'm going to upgrade to W7 soon and in the process I thought I'd upgrade my memory from 2GB to 4GB.

I ran Dell's utility from their tech support page and it seems to be the case that the maximum my computer will support is 2GB! Is that possible?

In any case, I ran a diagnostic program (from Dell's utility) and it says my computer has two memory slots, and currently each slot on my computer has "Dual In-line Memory Module 1GB, 533, 128X64, 8K, 200", whatever that means.

I assume the 533 is memory speed (Hz) value. So according to Dell's utility, I am unable to increase the amount of RAM, but I could, for instance, "upgrade" to better chips (i.e., Dell sells DDR2 SDRAM Memory Speed: 800 MHz). Price would be $56.
