GT 555m Drivers

Recommended Posts

Just wondering, which driver do most people use? The latest drivers seem to reduce my fps, so I reverted back to 296.10.

Hmm, I haven't had any noticeable performance drops with the newest drivers. But i haven't been bench marking my FPS. I usually just stick with The newest drivers and every 3 or so installs i wipe the drivers off my computer with driver sweeper.

hmmm... i was using 306.87 drivers on a 555m i have a m14x r1

and black ops 2 just wouldnt stay stable (crashed at the beging credits) and freeze my laptop,

assassins creed 3 random crashed now and again today i installed the latest BETA driver 310.97(or 310.something, the newest one!!) from official nvidia website... beta page.

I am using 306.87.

I went to 310.97 and Team fortress 2 is having non stop lag spike. For 3-8 seconds each time. Couldn't stand that. Revert back to 306.87 and it worked fine. Strange.

Now I plan to flash unlocked bios and increase the fan speed.

Oh nice, I'll give the latest drivers a shot and see how it goes. Thanks!

Just installed them and I feel like I too got an increase in performance.

No problem buddy... Glad i could help, :-)

Now into overvolting!!... Gonna see if i can hit a nice stable 800mhz clock, (be happy with a nice safe 800)

I'm using the newest 310 and I did notice a increase in performance, especially while playing Far Cry 3.

Overall it's not much of a difference to 306.97 (I used Dell's official one, wonder if Dell somehow adapted it for the M14x?)

Ok chaps...

further on from the 310 driver i posted,

nvidia released 310.70 beta for 555m....

So as i said i was going to overvolt mod from here...its done! Results are as follows -

using the latest 310.70 driver and custom a08 overvolt bios... With evga precision i Was able to reach max stable clocks of-

830mhz 1070 memory (stable)

Although heat was only 68-70° it was a little too warm for my liking...

(Although it did manage a whopping average 10-12+FPS increase over the base clock of 590mhz 900memory clocks!!!!)

I decided on a more comfatable, cooler, setting of-

800mhz core clock 1060 memory

Max temps after running MSI furmark for 30 mins were 68° ( which does stress the gpu at 100%)

In fact, in ACTUAL gaming the temps were as low as 63° even after 2hr of batman arkham city with average of 34FPS...,

and 62-63° in sleeping dogs,

and a constanst 62° in assassins creed 3 30+fps!!! all maxed out.

So in conclusion... Over the 5 Fixed benchmarks in the 5 games i ran-

-batman arkham city (fixed in game benchmark)

-sleeping dogs (fixed in game benchmark with high res)

-hitman absolution (fixed in game benchmark)

-resident evil 5 (fixed dx10 benchmark)

-crysis 2

On average there was a massive gain of 8-10 fps increase from running the same benchmarks on the stock 555m clocks!!!

(making a choppy 20 fps raise to a butter smooth 30+fps!)

The following games i ran gave the best results...

Battlefield 3 was able to run on all high settings (with some set to highest) running way,...way noticeably smoother and playable than before overclock

Max payne 3 maxed out ran flawlessly... but Before overclocking could have some slow down now and again when too much physics action or graphics processing was going on... But after overclock very smooth and ran perfect

Assassins creed 3 & batman arkhan city had huge fps gains of big 10+FPS

Call of duty black ops 2 ran smooth maxed out great on single player But moving onto multiplayer saw VERY big increases in fps, on the larger maps was very noticable

Skyrim maxed out had the most noticable inrease of all the games i tested with a whopping 12+FPS!!

SO ... With my repaste on the cpu and gpu with artic silver done (reducing my max temps from 85-90° down to 62-65°) i went ahead with this m14x voltage mod... And tell the truth i am amazed what a good quality repaste and a small voltage increase for the overclock actually managed a minimum increase of 8-10fps increase!!!

(12+FPS in another one or two i tested!!!) all with temps still below 70°!!!!.

***Delighted*** ;-)

im sure i could have pushed further than a max of 830mhz and 1070 memory, probably with a nice cooling board with dual fans and few mods i could push a nice stable 850mhz and 1080memory!!

But as for now im very happy scaling it down to a nice stable, cool, 800mhz core clock and 1060 memory

!!!! Which is still A BIG 35% OVER STOCK CLOCKS!!!!

Many thanks to @svl7 @n3ocort3x @Ninjahunter and all the creators and testers/uploaders of this great mod, all Your work and efforts are much appreciated!!...

thanks.

Those are a lot better numbers than im running right now (stock lol). I did just download the new 310.70 drivers and noticed an improvement though. I cant download the voltage mod yet, but seeing your gains as they are, i'll have to jump on that when i can download it.

Oh thanks for this informations. I'm runing on a m14x R1, and Assassin's creed III always crash after 5mn playing. I have a good CPU who runs at 2,5Ghz so I don't think that comes from here.

So I've seen your post with an increased GPU voltage and the latest drivers (that I have), I'm going to try. Thanks for fixed that.

Ps: Sorry about the mistakes, I'm a french guy.

I'm running the new 310.70 drivers and so far they've bee great. Mostly on the game Far Cry 3, but other games have been fine too, no decrease in speed at least. Trying the overvolt as soon as I can. May need to invest in some thermal paste...

Btw, thx cagefighter for the optimistic news!

I've try to fix a crash on Assass'in's Creed 3 only with the new driver, but same freeze after 30 minutes playing. May be the gpu need to be overvolting because he can't do that properly.

My temps never gets over 60-70, it must come from the GPU.

Does anyone have the same problem with AC3 ? Thanks by advance.

When I started using the 320.00 beta driver released on the 23 april I noticed some really great performance improvements in my games, particularly in War of the Roses which had previously given me really bad lag.
