NVIDIA vs. Lenovo driver comparison (GT 750M)

Recommended Posts

Hello, just wanted to share the results of some benchmarking I did to compare the latest NVIDIA driver on Lenovo's Y500 support page and the generic driver provided by NVIDIA.

There was only one anomaly: There was actually a decrease in performance using the NVIDIA driver without an overclock in the PLAGame Benchmark, specifically the drop in average frames without having the overclocked core and memory. Other than that, everything translated about as expected.

For unforeseen causes...I was unable to get EVGA OC Scanner to use the GPU for the PhysX test, which is why I only used the CPU test.

The GPU was overclocked using EVGA PrecisionX 5.2.3

I used EVGA OC Scanner 3.5.1.0 ... which simply counts the number of frames rendered for each test in a 60 second time frame and uses that as the score.

And PLAGame Benchmark v1.0

Lenovo Driver (9.18.13.2762)

EVGA OC Scanner: Furry E, fullscreen, 1920x1080, 4x MSAA

Stock Clocks..........: 1198

EVGA OC Scanner: Tesselation + DOF, fullscreen, 1920x1080, 4xMSAA

Stock Clocks..........: 1626

+135 Core; +600 Memory: 1853

EVGA OC Scanner: PhysX Fluids v1 (CPU), 1920x1080, 4x MSAA

Stock Clocks..........: 911

+135 Core; +600 Memory: 1034

PLAGame Benchmark, "Direct 11 high specs" preset

Stock Clocks..........: Average, 57.5; Max, 94.6

+135 Core; +600 Memory: Average, 57.0; Max, 107.1

NVIDIA Driver (9.18.13.4411)

EVGA OC Scanner: Furry E, fullscreen, 1920x1080, 4x MSAA

Stock Clocks..........: 1211 (+13)

+135 Core; +600 Memory: 1364 (+12)

EVGA OC Scanner: Tesselation + DOF, fullscreen, 1920x1080, 4xMSAA

Stock Clocks..........: 1655 (+29)

+135 Core; +600 Memory: 1896 (+43)

EVGA OC Scanner: PhysX Fluids v1 (CPU), 1920x1080, 4x MSAA

Stock Clocks..........: 1047 (+136)

+135 Core; +600 Memory: 1212 (+178)

PLAGame Benchmark, "Direct 11 high specs" preset

Stock Clocks..........: Average, 53.6; Max, 101.6 (-3.9 avg.; +7.0 max)

+135 Core; +600 Memory: Average, 63.0; Max, 107.4 (+6.0 avg.; +0.3 max)

Discussion is welcome :)

I think that for the fair comparison, both should use the same driver version.

In this case Lenovo driver is older v.327.62 while nvidia driver is newer v.344.11

"NonExtreme" is right.

Try to install the original v.327.62 driver and test again. ;-)

I'm always using the original NVIDIA-Drivers and until now I'm good to go. ;-)

The reason why I always choose the original driver is, because it gets updated. :-)
