Sony :: Nvidia GT 330m Overclockers

Feb 3, 2010

using this gpu in the CW or F series.

Right now I'm using Nvidia tools to oc:

650 gpu clock
800 memory
1550 shader

I have seen a max temp of 70c. I would say I'm getting on average a boost of 5-10fps.

Sony :: Why Do CWs From 's Websites Not Have Nvidia 330m

Mar 11, 2010

I checked both the Canadian and US website, and they dont offer 330ms anymore, instead its 211m / 310m, and they perform at about half the ability of the 330ms

Why? It's such a huge downgrade!

Sony :: Second Life On Z11 Gt 330m

Apr 16, 2010

I posted this in the main thread (where it got instantly buried in the message avalanche)

Question regarding the gt330m

I could swear that the very first time I fired up SecondLife on the Z, that it recognized the gt330m and used it. Also, I'm pretty sure I checked that the cpu utilization was quite low as it ran.

Sony :: Z, 330M And Overheating

Jan 19, 2010

I owned previous Z with P8400 and it was very hot when 100% loaded with 3D-applications (3DMark or games) in speed mode. It is known to overheat with T9900 as well. Now Z uses GT 330M which outputs almost twice as much heat as 9300M GS (I wouldn't count i5 because it has same TDP as Core 2 Duo). Other manufacturers aren't putting 330M in such a small enclosure mainly due to thermal limitations.

Sony posted few images showing its heatsink and fan. I don't see significant changes in cooling system and I'm sick of that.

I don't want to pay premium price and then find 330M unusable due to overheating.

Sony :: GT 330M Throttled Can It Be Fixed

Mar 9, 2010

I've just got a Sony VAIO CW2 with a GT 330M GPU and have read that the chip is throttled from the default settings.

The source is a review at, translated with Google Translate.

According to the GT 330M should run at a speed that is higher than what is reported by CPU-Z:

Core Speed: 575 MHz vs my speed of 475 MHz
Shader Speed: 1265 MHz vs my speed of 1045 MHz
Memory Speed: 1066 MHz vs my speed of 680 MHz

Sony :: Vaio Z11 GT 330m VRAM Type

Apr 13, 2010

I can't seem to confirm what type of VRAM the GT 330m in the Z11 is. All specs listings seem to be inconsistent!

If someone could point me to a screenshot using GPU-Z to verify, I'd be very appreciated!

Reason I ask is it seems the new Macbook Pro 15 inch models come with GDDR3, and I have a hunch that the z11 is just DDR3.

Sony :: VAIO FNVIDIA Drivers Update (197.16) For GT 330M (10DE-0A29)

Apr 1, 2010

Update: NVIDIA released 197.44 drivers for notebooks(with OpenGL 4 support for Fermi GPU), GT300M only gets support up to 3.3

I used the same inf file(changing drivers' version and date, of course) and everything is working as expected.
Just follow the same instructions if you wanna try.
- 197.44 inf file and instructions: Midtown's 197.44 (Mirrors: Megaupload, Hotfile)
- NVIDIA's original drivers: Download for Windows 7(64-bit)


So I managed to install the new NVIDIA drivers for laptops, 197.16 on my VAIO F after modifying the inf file myself for a few hours. I'm no expert, but I guess it worked out fine.

Here's the link for inf file & instructions: Midtown's 197.16

Disclaimer: I'm not responsible for any hardware/software failure.

After testing the new drivers for 24hrs:
- No flicker at low brightness
- No uneven brightness after pressing the "Display Off" button
- Fan not constantly running
- "Normal" temperature compared to Sony's "certified" graphic drivers
- No problems after sleep/restart........................

I presume this is Windows 7-only?

I don't own a Mac (yet), so I'm unsure about how Nvidia/homebrew supports OC'ing in OSX (or if they do at all).

Needless to say, this is fantastic news for me and everyone else needing to bleed more from a GPU than what the 330M offers by default. that's almost a 30% increase right there, folks..........................

HP/Compaq :: Softmod GT 230M Into A GT 330M

Jan 7, 2010

Is it possible to softmod a GT 230M in a dv6 quad into a GT 330M? It would require overclocking the core by 75MHz and the shaders by 165MHz and then getting the drivers to recognize it as a GT 330M instead of a GT 230M. Reason I would want to do this is for the added performance and so that the graphics card is still the "latest generation". How hard do you think it would be to do this and how much more subjectable to overheating do you think it would be if done?

Dell :: Precision M4300 Installed The NVIDIA Drivers For The NVidia Quadro FX 360M ...

Dec 29, 2008

I recently got a Dell Precision M4300 from a friend and had a few questions.

When i got the laptop, I reformatted the Laptop and Reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2. I proceeded from Microsoft to Update to SP3 and so on.

Well I also Went to Dell's Website and downloaded all the necessary drivers (using the service tag) for this laptop and installed them.

Now here is where I ran into a problem,

When I installed the NVIDIA drivers for the NVidia Quadro FX 360M video card, everything seemed to go fine. Then I rebooted the Laptop, and now every time I reboot, my hardware acceleration is defaulted back to None, and it gives me multiple pop ups about this issue. I go into the settings and turn the Acceleration back to full and it goes away.

This is a major problem, and is really frustrating to deal with everytime the laptop is booted up.

My other problem, is when I open up Internet Explorer, It tends to lock up the browser for no reason when Loading a website. I then CTRL+ALT+DEL and attempt to close iexplore.exe via the task manager. It closes the browser but does not shut down the browser, making it impossible to browse, so then I have to reboot.

here are the specs of the PC, from the device manager and drivers I have gotten

Dell Precision M4300
NVidia Quadro FX 360M 512mb Video Graphics Card
TSST 8x dvd+-R burner
120GB Hard Drive
3.5GB of Ram
2.5GHZ T9300 Core 2 Duo Processor
1394 Port
2 USB ports
External Monitor Ports
Wifi Support
Bluetooth Support
Windows XP SP2 Pro

From what I know a fast Nvidia card+ 3D Glasses + 120HZ MONITOR= Nvidia 3D vision for 3D gaming.

My question is has anyone tried outputiing to a 120hz compatible monitor via HDMI and the glasses and see if this worked?

Would be cool if the Z could.


If so, I would probably get the glasses and a compatible monitor.

Sony :: Fz21m - Hdd Memory Or Nvidia

Mar 1, 2010

I have a problem with my FZ21M and need to narrow down the faulty component.
Purchased from amazon uk in feb 08 and have had no problems at all with it.
Haven't used it in a few months and has been safely stored.

Last week I booted it up and all was fine but in the course of installing many microsoft updates it hung and after powering down would not boot into windows.

I used the recovery software and got it back up and running. Checking the hard disk took forever with many errors. Still, seemed ok but then froze again on windows update .....

Sony :: SZ58 GN/C Nvidia Driver

Dec 11, 2009

Is almost close to a year now, I have not been able to fix up my drivers and get my SPEED mode to work nor install any Geforce drivers.

I have look around the web alot for solutions and being cautious (not to damage the notebook) I rarely try anything out.

When first bought end of dec'07, it was running well the first few months till the fan made rattling noise as if the whole notebook didn't had a screw in every hole and was going to fall apart.

I send it to SONY service centre couple of times to get it fix and finally the fan issue was gone till I had a BSOD somewhere in mid'08 and all hell break lose from here on

Sony :: Updating Nvidia Disaster On FZ

Aug 26, 2009

Found new GPU driver on Sony support site, followed the instructions , wish it was in English not Engrish, the instructions were somehow inconsistent,l proceeded with it anyway, system restarted.

The result is blank, black display and I have no clue how to proceed. I supposed after uninstalling the driver, Windows will restart with default driver then I could install the new Nvidia.

I hoped using the Recovery disc can help restart, but it only repairs defective boot nothing else/ there is 0 error there.

When I am working in speed more for a while, when I try drag around windows i get this really annoying lag.

The window will kind of sputter as I drag it... but if i do it a few times then the dragging gets smooth again. Its as if the nvidia chip needs to wake up and run fast or something. It feels like garbage

but I dont get this ins stamina mode

Sony :: Vaio + NVIDIA + Windows 7

Apr 21, 2010

I own a Sony Vaio Laptop, VGN-FZ21M. This laptop comes with a NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT GPU Graphics card.

Originally, the laptop came with Windows Vista. I had no problems there. Once Windows 7 came out, I upgraded. Problems started there, with Windows not recognizing my video card correctly. It was displayed not as NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT, but as a Standard VGA Graphic Adapter.

At the time, the problem was more or less easily solved. I downloaded the drivers from NVIDIA, but I wasn't able to do a direct install (an error would occur). So I updated the Graphic card manually, by browsing the disk and chosing the nvmt.inf file that came within the drivers given by NVIDIA on their website, as the file to update my Graphic card with.

This worked out perfectly. My Graphic card was updated and working as great as ever.

However, more recently, I decided to format my laptop, and give it a clean Windows 7 install. I did this because my laptop was giving some graphical weirdies. I thought a format would solve it. It didn't.................

Sony :: Z11 Battery: NVIDIA Vs Intel

May 2, 2010

Has anyone tested the battery using NVIDIA vs. Intel? Is there a big difference between the number of hours/minutes you get between the two? I understand gaming will significantly drain the battery but lets just say under usual usage such as browsing, emailing, listening to music, some photoshop etc.

Also, does the battery drain issue still exist in the Z11 where the battery is drained even if the system is fully powered off?

Sony :: SZ6 Abruptly Powers Off. Nvidia 8400M GS

Aug 26, 2009

I had assumed, but I want to make sure that my SZ6's problem is due to the Nvidia temp defect thing everyone's talking about.

Basically my computer is always very hot. Just downloaded SpeedFan and the GPU and both Cores are 78C and i've just been surfing the web for a few hours.

The problem happens when I play games (like Civ4 or Half-life 2) for a few hours or sometimes less if its a hot day. The laptop will abruptly power off as if I pulled the battery and power cord out.

When I reboot, I get that error message that says Windows did not shut down properly, do you want to reboot normally or in safe mode
