Sony :: VPC-Z112 Nvidia Graphics 2D Clock Speed

May 12, 2010

Have a Vaio Z112 with the Nvidia 330M. I know this gpu should slow down to ~150mhz when only running 2D apps. Looking at nvidia system tools and nvidia precision tool mine always seems to run at the full 475mhz regardless of what I'm using.

Anyone else experience this? Did Sony write out the slow speeds in their drivers due to the assumption we would switch to intel graphics when needed?

In nvidia system tools there is an area that shows 2d/3d clock speed. normally you would expect to see ~150/475 there...I only see 475. Basically it looks like there is no 2d-only clock speed.

Sony :: FW490 CTO 4650: Clock Speed Only 450/600

Aug 20, 2009

I ordered a FW490 CTO w/ P8700, 4650 1GB, 4GB RAM, Vista 64, etc. Anyways, I was a little disappointed with how well it ran Americas Army 3. I downloaded and ran GPUZ, and I got some interesting results... It says that my 4650 uses GDDR3 memory, which is apparently the best setup for the card, but it also reports that my clock speed is 450 MHz, and my memory clock speed is 600 MHz. From everything I have gathered, that is below what most 4650 Mobilitys are at... what gives? What are the speeds of everyone elses 4650?

Sony :: VAIO SZCPU Clock Speed Dropped From 2.16Ghz To 1.006Ghz

Nov 9, 2009

I have had some strange things happen on my Sony Vaio SZ.

I returned from holiday (two days away) and brought my SZ back up from hibernation mode. It hung after I logged in. Rebooted it, and it came back after I put the battery back in and disabled wifi. Not that these actions indicate a problem with either wifi nor the battery (which died back in 2006).

However, it is running rather slowly. I installed the benchmark programme called Performance Test, ( http://www.passmark.com/products/pt.htm ) from an Australian company. It informed me that the T2600 (2.16Ghz) was actually running at 1.006Ghz. On top of this it gave an overall performance rating of 276, which is extremely poor for a Vaio SZ.

The original Sony Windows XP installation was removed a long time ago and an OEM XP Pro and SP3 was installed with a selection of specific drivers for the Vaio SZ components.

Sony :: Vaio Z690 Speed Mode Graphics

May 9, 2009

It seems for some reason my Z690 does not work well in the speed setting. This results into videos that seem to refresh a lot, games that are slow and have jagged edges and in general slow video performance.

Whats funny is that on stamina setting, all my graphics actually do quite well. Videos play fine as do the games /w smooth edges

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - CPU Stuck At Slow Clock Speed

Aug 11, 2014

Had a w540 for a few days and so far it'd be fine. At the weekend i used the laptop on battery for a long time and thus set the power-management low to conserve power.

However, today having switched back to power supply and setting power scheme to max performance the CPU is still concerving power.
 
Its running (according to resource manager) at 29% and no matter how much i do it sticks at that percentage. The laptop does feel like its running at that clock speed too ... everything is super slow ... can watch programs drawing in the display...

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 :: Can't Alter GPU Clock With ATI GPU Clock Tool

Apr 24, 2009

I have a brand new xps16, running wonderfully.

I've modded the desktop Catalyst 9.4 drivers, games perform well, better than the provided Dell Catalyst.

What I would like to do however, is be able to alter the GPU clocks. Not by much, just a little.

I've tried AMD GPU clock tool; but this does not let me fix new clock values for the ATI 3670. I enter a new value, and they revert to the default right away

Apple :: Will Ditch NVIDIA For Intel Graphics

May 27, 2009

I'm planning on making the switch to a Mac but I don't need a new notebook till Q3 09/Q1 2010. I know the next major hardware refresh is coming soon and I want a Macbook to last through uni but I don't know Apples sales strategies.

My main concern is the integrated graphics that the MB may come with when it is refreshed. What I wanted to ask is if anyone knows the likelihood that Apple will drop NVIDIA and go back to Intel.

Because if that was to be the case, I might as well buy one now (or once SL is released) because i'd rather have a Centrino 2 based MB w/ NVIDIAs iGPU then go back to Intel (harsh, i know... but it's the truth).
Even with all the benefits the Calpella chipset/Westmere CPU would bring i.e. USB 3.0, SATA-III, Bluetooth 3.0, native SSD support, removal of FSB, integrated memory controller, DDR3-1600, improved wireless tech (w/ finalized 802.11n spec), lower power consumption, 32nm Nehalem.

Man I wish Apple would stick with NVIDIA for their next platform. NVIDIA has greater compatibility than anyone else and I know for a fact that the integrated graphics that will come with Arrandale are just a higher clocked 4500MHD so it will still be a lot weaker then even todays Macbook offering (9400m) which is like taking two steps back.
Would be frickin AWESOME if we could get Calpella with a variant of Arrandale without its integrated graphics core. Instead, couple it with a 40/32nm shrink of the current 9400m based on the G300 architecture.............

Dell :: BIG Design Flaw In E6400 W/ Nvidia Graphics

Sep 12, 2009

I feel E6400 w/ Nvidia has big design flaw w/ Heat! I had hopes Bios A15 would fix some of it.

Even though I used RMClock to reduce the voltage (it did drop 5-7C), the left side vent of the laptop blows VERY hot air out ALL THE TIME!! My graphic cards on a fresh boot starts at 58C and goes up to 68-70C w/ normal web usage (not even games).

By using Antec Cooler (No choice otherwise, which makes enough fan noise & feels much heavier) + laptop fans noise.. it feels like a desktop, rather than sleek and quiet notebook. Becuase of this fans noise + Heat I don't tend to use my laptop much often. My Dell XPS 720 desktop is much quieter to use. I felt previous D620/D630 were much better when controlling the heat.

Dell :: Buying An XPS 15 Laptop NVidia V. ATI Graphics Card

Mar 13, 2009

I am starting to research 15/-16" laptops and looking at the XPS - for my wife who is a photographer. She currently has an Inspiron 1720 but it's not performing for her so she wants to upgrade.

Plus she still has the PITA issue with Vista where her screen color calibrations are continually lost. I on the other hand have an Inspiron 1520 with an nVidia graphics card and once calibrated, my screen doesn't lose the settings.

So I wanted to get her a laptop with an nVidia card - but looking at the XPSs they all seem to have the ATI graphics card - only the old stock still has the nVidia cards.

Is the ATI comparable or better than the nVidia? Will it retain the calibration settings like the nVidia does? Is dell no longer bundlingg nVidia cards because of the problems I have read about (never had any myself).

Acer :: Installed Wrong NVIDIA Graphics Driver

Nov 30, 2008

As I had been having a couple of minor problems with a temporary dim screen on startup and occasional screen flicker, I decided to upgrade the NVIDIA display driver on my 5920G.

Unfortunately I rather carelessly installed driver update 180.48 for a 8800 GS rather than the correct 178.24 for the 8600GT on my laptop.

It installed fully and the display still seems to be working OK (but screen flicker still there)

I am wondering whether or not it is OK to leave the 180.48 driver as it is or whether I should roll the driver upgrade back and then install 178.24.

To be honest I find installing drivers quite complicated and difficult so I would prefer to take no action unless the expert advice from members of this forum says it will cause me future problems.

HP/Compaq :: NVidia Setup Not Detecting My 8400M GS Graphics

Feb 19, 2009

This has been getting on my nerves lately. In the past, they never bothered releasing drivers for laptops but now that they do, I can't get it to work with my laptop, which is HP Pavilion 6670ee with NVidia 8400M GS...

I know that 3rd party driver will work with it but I am not able to get the PhysX support with those drivers for some reason and if I download Notebook driver from NVidia website, the latest which they released few days ago for example.

I get this error during installation:

The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit.

It's NVidia's own 8400M GS - wth is it not detecting it?

Dell :: Nvidia's Digital Vibrance In INTEL Graphics Card

Jun 28, 2009

I am looking for an office laptop.. want E6400.. but, I don't want to go w/ nvidia video due to lot of heat and fan issues. Only reason I wanted to go w/ nvidia is their DIGITAL Vibrance... I LOVE IT!! Make the colors very rich and bright and I cannot live w/ it.

Does Intel video card have something close? My old laptop had Intel video and it is very junk, it had blue tint to entire screen.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y580 - Disabling Nvidia Graphics In BIOS

Apr 30, 2013

I have an IdeaPad Y580, and I want to disable the Nvidia chip in the BIOS (I run Linux on it and don't use the chip.) I have the BIOS updated to the latest version from Lenovo's website. I couldn't seem to find anything in the BIOS settings that would allow me to just use the Intel HD 4000 graphics. There was an option to change from "Switchable" graphics to "UMA" graphics, but from my understanding the UMA option means using the CPU to process graphics instead of even the Intel integrated.
 
Is there any way to turn off the Nvidia chip, or am I stuck with it being on?

HP OS/Software :: Pavilion 15-n209TX - NVidia Update Error / No Graphics App In Startup

Apr 1, 2014

Product no.: F6C49PA
Model: Pavilion 15-n209tx Notebook
 
I have in my system NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M (2 GB DDR3 dedicated) video graphics preinstalled. I had downloaded & installed latest updates for NVIDIA i.e., nvidia graphics driver 335.23, geforce experience 2.0 & physx sytem software 9.13.1220 via hp support assistant following a software update alert 1 month back after i bought my lap.
 
Today i had to refresh my system due to an error in search charm not listing hp recovery manager {,following uninstall & reinstall of latest hp support assistant 1week back (details can be read from this link: Search Charm Win8.1 Error). anyway search charm error has been resolved.}
 
But when i checked hp support assistant today for updates, couldnt get any related to nvidia. my nvidia is still old version - nvidia graphics driver 327.02, nvidia physx system software 9.13.0604, nvidia update 1.14.17.

I'm getting update error while clicking Update on nvidia control panel in system tray icon & in nvidia settings.

when i checked nvidia website the update is there for download & also latest nvidia graphic driver update is there in HP Product website too. mine is not the version present in the website at present.
 
My question is should i download it from websites or should i wait till it come in support assistant. Though there is no visible issue in my system without the update that im aware of. But an update error message is showing while i click update in nvidia settings. also nvidia is not present in start up apps in task manager (or rather no graphics app is present in startup). What should i do?

Apple :: MacBook Pros Use Nvidia's Power-Saving Optimus Graphics Tech

Feb 19, 2010

Looks like our hunches about what's inside the next MacBook Pros are panning out: AppleInsider hears that Apple's got new MacBook Pros running that can switch between integrated and discrete graphics automagically, which exactly describes Nvidia's Optimus dual graphics tech.

If you remember, the unibody MacBooks from Oct. 2008 were the first to use Nvidia's GeForce 9400M, a combination chipset/integrated GPU that ridiculously outperformed Intel's own integrated graphics, and the Pro models at the time could switch between power-saving integrated and beefier discrete graphics, though it requires a logout.

Nvidia got cockblocked from making chipsets for Intel's latest-gen chips (read: Core i3, Core i5, Core i7), ruling out using Nvidia's better integrated graphics; Nvidia canned their chipset business entirely. So! Nvidia's Optimus tech works with Intel's crappier integrated graphics that are built onto the same die as the newer Core processors, but even more seamlessly than beforethe computer automatically switches between Intel's power-sipping integrated and Nvidia's monster discrete graphics, depending on what you're doing. No logouts required.

In the demo we saw on a Windows machine, the automatic part of the tech has some drawbacksnamely, it's entirely dependent on software to tell your computer which graphics card to run. But Apple's obviously worked pretty closely with Nvidia on graphics before, so it seems logical they're doing so here, too. Though I don't expect we'll know until the new MacBooks finally arrive, whenever that happens (hopefully, soon).

Acer Aspire 3830TG-6494 :: Crashes While Gaming Using Either Integrated Or NVidia Graphics

Feb 3, 2015

Acer Aspire 3830TG-6494 crashes while gaming.
 
Crash symptoms:

-happens anywhere from within the first 15 minutes to several hours into a game (no link to graphic quality settings). No loss in performance leading up to the crash.
 
-screen glitches and goes black, with a brief buzzing sound. Power remains on and fan is still running, forcing a hard reset. 
 
-Occasionally the sceen will freeze, ~1cm horizontal green lines will appear all over and a loud buzzing sound is emitted from the speakers until a hard reset. 
 
-Rarely I get a BSOD or the computer will shut down and restart itself. Resulting DMP files show no consistent suspected cause.
 
-Crash will occasionally be preceded by certain in-game sounds cutting out. But not always.
 
-The only link between crashes is that I'm usually thinking a solution worked right before the crash. (Frustrating!)
 
-System will occasionally crash while  watching videos or something, but only crashes consistently while gaming.
  
I have tried the following: 

-Running games using only the integrated graphics or nVidia GeForce GT 540M GPU.
 
-Underclocking either the GPU(500MHz and 700MHz, from 672MHz and 900MHz), the CPU (seting max 70% power plan), and both simultaneously. 
 
-Temperatures do not exceed 70C under heavy use, and crash does not seem to be linked to any temperature increases. 
 
-Run both Windows 7 memory diagnostic and memtest86 (no problems found)
 
-Run intel CPU diagnostics and intel XTU benchmark which did not cause a crash. 
 
-Upgrading all drivers to latest versions, as well as rolling them back to the versions recommended on acer download website. (Completely uninstalling graphics drivers before re-installing different versions) And making sure windows update was not automatically installing driver updates.
 
-upgrading BIOS to v1.12, it was stable for a weekend then went back to crashing.
 
-The system seems to be more stable in power saver or balance mode, but not  by much. I also suspected the Ac power adapter because it didn't seem to crash on battery for a brief time. But I was wrong and it did end up crashing whether plugged in or not. 

Aand cleaning it out w/ compressed air, obviously ... I don't game often, and usually play older games on lower quality settings. I'm not overclocking or streaming at the same time.
