I've never seen someone manage to lock voltage on a skylake chip. Manual/Static voltage doesn't work. The chips do what they want, though Manual voltage and offsets do have some kind of effect.

Yeah, seems like only desktop motherboard can do that. In laptop the closest thing to have the voltage fluctuates less I guess is increasing the PLL value.

I was including desktops in my statement of "I've never seen a skylake chip lock voltage".

Though desktops can't lock the voltage, but at least it can get the value closer to what BIOS set, right?

The voltage in GPUZ of the last 3rd picture is pretty close with the voltage set in BIOS:

Not really. It's the same deal, more or less. Didn't the other user say he put it at 1.235v or something and it sits around 1.267 to 1.295 depending on what's done? That's how the desktops act too. The skylake chip does what it wants, you can kind of just influence it a little bit. If you overvolt a lot, it'll probably stick. But since the point is to use as little voltage as possible here, the lower you try to set it, the more variance should show up.

Haven't touched desktop board for a long time, now don't know how the voltage works there any more. My last time overclocking a desktop chip it was the age of Pentium 4 and AMD Athlon 3000+. 

It would be cool if AMD can drop the 95W Zen in a Clevo laptop. Rumor saying that it has similar performance with 6900k clock to clockwise.

Said rumor was using Blender which was using GPU acceleration from the APU on it, is what I heard. So far it looks like AMD is playing the same game nVidia and Intel play, and not well enough.

 

I don't like that. If AMD is going to be the same kind of garbage company, then even more reason to simply buy the stronger parts.

It's because on a laptop you can not control the load line calibration setting.

 

On most desktop boards you can control this thus locking the voltage in place.

New single 980M score! http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/11583651

 

Beaten only by Brother [USER=128218]@Johnksss@iBUYPOWER[/USER]  with the P570WM with Xeon Physics, but the baby beast matched and beat the graphics score by a very tiny 0.3% margin... http://www.3dmark.com/compare/3dm11/11407903/3dm11/11583651

And, how 'bout that physics killing Windows 10 turd OS? 10% hit on CPU performance with that crappy new OS, LOL.

Wait a minute...so @Mr. Fox has beaten @johnksss highest GTX980M 3DM11 GPU score?:

 

http://www.3dmark.com/compare/3dm11/11456296/3dm11/11568175

 

At least for me these scores are hard to search for, so not sure if John (or someone else, LOL) still has a higher one somewhere...

But looks like the crown-prince has taken his rightful place next to the King. :) 

 

If John still has his P570WMx, then this may turn into an interesting weekend... :P

They are hard to search for because there are so many scores in the 3DMark database. Clicking the link to "fetch the next 1000 results" for single GPU scores frequently does not work correctly. But, the top one or two scores usually are revealed, then you have to manually select a CPU to display any additional search results.

 

As we can see, Brother @johnksss had another one that wasn't visible in the search results that came up for me. It's pretty rare to beat him at anything running the same hardware. But, it is still a superior single GPU 3DMark 11 and a great accomplishment on the graphics score for a 15 inch laptop sporting an extremely unimpressive, if not downright pathetic, cooling system and a blast furnace CPU.

At the end of the day....After the numbers are crunched....They are still the same. A half of a fps does not really settle things. :D

You're right. And, it's all for fun anyway. I'm just excited to finally, after all this time, have one out of six 980M cards that actually works well and performs as nicely as yours. And, even that would not be possible without the modding talent of Brother @Khenglish. This same GPU that runs like a bat out of hell was a $700 piece of shit before he made things right on the hardware side. It is sad that it took two years and multiple GPUs to end up with just one good enough to place me at or near the top in 980M benchmark scores. But, it's nice to have a happy ending to 980M.

Yep. This is true. You certainly did have a bad luck run on gpus, but it's always nice to actually get some good ones from time to time. :)

 

Side Note:

That score was hidden because it's over all score was lower.

Just like the good old days, benching the M18xR1 and M18xR2 on hotel room AC with Brother @johnksss on the phone teaching me all the ropes back when I was a noob.

 

Those were some good times. Hotel AC cooling works just as well for Clevos, LOL.

Thanks @Prema, for the Team T|i hwbot invite.

 

I've officially joined. Submitting some scores now...

 

Update: I'm at 3rd Overall for Fire Strike and Time Spy. Please help me beat my PR... Just need a few more points to bump up to 2nd. :)

P150EM direct dGPU output progress continues. 980 is still stuck in pstate 5 (3D battery power state), but with some mods performance from P5 is now acceptable to wait for Prema to do BIOS mod magic to fix standard 3D and boost power states.

 

Voltage hardmod done boosts voltage by 97mV over the pitiful .825V P5 voltage:

 

875/7012 3dm11: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/11635126

 

Stable prior to the voltage mod was 760 MHz. P5 just does not clock well at all, even considering the low voltage. This should have gotten me over 1GHz stable.

 

I reflashed to an optimus BIOS for a performance comparison test clock for clock at something P5 can do for a optimus vs direct comparison.

 

760/7012 direct 3dm11 gets 12090 GPU score: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/11635090

760/7012 optimus 3dm11 gets 11459 GPU score: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/11635075

 

So at a measly 760 MHz core, optimus is an uninsignificant 5.2% performance loss. I did a quick Unigine comparison and got 3.3% loss there. These losses also include the fact that P5 runs the PCI-E at 1.1 speeds, quartering the bandwidth. All optimus tests were done with an underclocked P0 running at full 3.0 speeds.

 

UPDATE:

 

It turns out my bad heatsink mount was to blame for the poor core clocks. Here's 1001 MHz core:

 

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/11635270

 

Also I noticed that 3dm11 seems to try to lock fps to roughly 10 Hz intervals when over 60fps. Ex I often see 60.2 fps reported, 90.1 flickering with 90.9, 100.0, and 80.0. This seems odd and I am wondering if this is normal for direct output.

      Hello, 
       
      some of my computer specs are as follows: 
      CPU: I9-9900k
      GPU: RTX 2070
      memory: 32 GB (forget the manufacturer/ clocks)
      Dsanke bios mod
       
       
       I recently bought a 1440p screen that is 120hz capable, but it does not allow me to select the 120hz option. I have checked numerous places and all of the websites say that this screen is 120hz enabled. I have the dsanke bios mod on my computer. I see people being able to use this screen's 120hz functionality, but I can't get it to work. Any suggestions? If you need any additional information about my laptop, I will be happy to provide info.

      Hello everyone! First of all sorry if this isn't the correct forum to post this.
      I bought a laptop few days ago. The laptop is Sager P150EM.
      Cpu:i7 3610qm 
      Gpu: amd hd 7970m
      Ram: 8gb
      Os: windows 8.1 pro
      So my problem is that everytime i install the amd driver after the intel driver my laptop freezes or gets a bsod or something that stops it from working. Any help would be appreciated. I saw somewhere something about vbios does this matter anywhere?

      Title sums it up.
       
      TL;DR: we have a Clevo that runs a desktop CPU, one with those huge 82 Wh batteries. We remove the GPU and let it use the CPU's integrated graphics. How much time for the battery to go from 100 to 0? Is it comparable to an ultrabook's?
       
      I'm theorizing a mobile set with a static eGPU and an upgradable CPU. Given a hypothetical user that needs fast processing on the go and long battery life while retaining very high degrees of mobility, but at home wants a powerful machine to run most games, I guess that would be their best bet. It would surely be more convenient to keep everything in the same disk. And even though the thing would be quite heavy to carry around, changing CPU would be more cost-efficient than changing an entire laptop. (Not sure if I'm right here, and also I'm not sure whether the motherboard in a Clevo would be replaceable when the new CPU needs a different socket, which is another reason why I'm asking here.)
       
      If my above guesses aren't correct, then an ultrabook with Thunderbolt and without a dedicated GPU would be a better choice. If they are, then we would be carrying more weight in exchange of a more cost-efficient setup, which I think would be a fair tradeoff.
       
      Also I am aware of the heating problems that these laptops suffer from, at least compared to a desktop setup. Would they be solved by moving the GPU out of the chassis, and instead plugging it with an eGPU dock via Thunderbolt port?
       
      What do you think? Is it doable? If not, why?

      I installed an NVIDIA Quadro P4000 Max-Q in a Clevo P750DM-G.
       
      Device manager hardware ID shows:
      PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1BB7&SUBSYS_75021558&REV_A1
       
      I have done the standard inf file mod, then disabled driver enforcement as I have done successfully in the past, but it's not working this time. The install starts, then fails less than half way through. I have tried the DCH version, standard version, and studio versions and none of them will work. I am probably missing something. Could it be the result of the vBIOS?
       
      Below are screenshots starting with GPUz

      So I just recently bought a used ORIGIN PC EON17-X. with CLEVO P775DM-G in it. I wanted to know if its possible to upgrade it with CLEVO P775TM1-G so I can have something like an RTX series in it. I wonder if its possible? Clevoparts does sale CLEVO P775TM1-G. Any expert can help? and what kind of things i would have to consider before following such a plan, what kind of hurdles? Any help is really appreciated.
