LAPTOP DSR WINDOWS 10 Preview

Recommended Posts

...Hi all. I felt i must post this info. Today i installed windows 10 preview again here on my P370SM. 680M sli.I wanted to try out a driver that "Cyris" posted on a guru 3d forum. (349.72) here is the forum : windows 10 directx driver 349.65 windows update - Page 3 - Guru3D.com Forums . here is the driver i downloaded : 349.65-desktop-win10-64bit-international-beta . It worked ok. When i came to set the nvidia control panel to my preferred settings there was the option for "DSR" I tried it and it seemed to work.I have not used DSR before but i defiantly felt that it was working. BTW i had to add my gpu hardware id the "nv_dispiwu.inf" file. Cheers! : )

Did you notice a drop in fps after enabling it? That's one way to know it's on.

no... actually i did not. I did find that in BF4 with that driver i was getting much better frame rates, much higher than normal! Im guessing this is to do with the limited Directx 12 support? The driver ran well to start with but then i ran in to a bad stutter problem. Beacuse i installed windows 10 preview on a raid 0 set up, when i go into safe boot to uninstall the driver with Display Driver Uninstaller, windows 10 gives me an error stating that it can not recognize my hardware.To uninstall that driver properly i will have to reinstall the whole system again. I may do this again to day and try a fresh install of it. CODAW still ran very well but that is all the games i had available to try. I still did not notice a frame drop in CODAW with DSR on. :confusion: Again im not sure if the limited support for Directx 12 is covering the lack of frame rate drop.

Maybe I'll put 10 on a VHD again and try it out, it's been since the first consumer preview that I tried it.

Wonder if OC works lol. That would be perfect

Is DSR possible in windows 8 OS?

I doubt that driver would install on 8. My guess is its a WDDM 2.0 driver built specifically for 10 running on a desktop nVidia card which is why it needs the INF mod.

BF4 and CoD:AW are DX11 not DX12. DX12 games don't release until the holidays.

No drop means DSR isn't working. SSAA has a massive impact on FPS.

Is there any way to get ahold of the DX12 swarm benchmark I wonder?

If it's an .inf mod, do you have an idea what .inf file is it located in displaydriver folder?

Ok.... thank you!;) I was lead to believe in you-tube vids i watched about Directx 12, that when Directx 12 is running, all games will be processed in the same way, IE processed more through the gpu than the cpu.I did not realize that they had to be Directx 12 compatible I thought Directx 12 was backwards compatible.

To see the benefits of DX12 (a low level API) you need games that are built around it. See the star swarm benchmark that Anandtech had benches on: AnandTech | The DirectX 12 Performance Preview: AMD, NVIDIA, & Star Swarm

Wish they made that public.

Installed W10 to a VHD file on my RAID SSDs and its installing everything now for updates. Then I'll download steam and link my library and start messing around once I get my touch pad working right.

They probably will at some point since they plan to build a game around that demo/engine. But releasing it right now would probably be premature since older architectures like Fermi and GCN 1.0 don't work currently with DX 12.

I understand that but it's a tease to have DX12 and not be able to test it out.

I'm sure we'll see something very soon from the likes of Futuremark.

I don't know why but I don't have DSR.

Sleeping Dogs is a DX11 game. So is Bioshock Infinite. No DSR.

Turn off SLI and see if it appears.

Well now it's rebooting every time I install an app... Wtf. Glad I did this on a VHD... I think I'll be trashing it sooner than later.

Not gonna believe this, clicking the start menu reboots it. Ugh, I'm gonna try a refresh and if not a clean install. It does it again it's done.

Bioshock Infinite and 3DMark with DSR set to 4x native... No change in visual quality or the scores. So no, DSR is not working at this time. Sorry to report that.

It's odd that DSR is a global setting only. I think it's a bug that it's there at all.

Maby it is a bug. I felt i should upload this screen capture to clarify my first post.I also have the BSOD when i hit the windows 10 start button, only if there is another window open on screen at the same time.Im sorry for posting the first post.I would not have posted anything if i did not feel at the time it may have been relevant. With no frame drop when the DSR is selected, i guess it is not working. :distrust: Cheers!

...Yesterday i accidentally came across a forum where a person could not get there DSR working. A person replied stating that to make DSR work you have to run in full screen mode.I did not try full screen mode.I always use windowed borderless. I wondered if you still have the VHD of win 10 and could test that easily.

      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?

      NVIDIA 'Maxwell' VBIOS mods
       
       
      Here you find modified VBIOS versions for the mobile parts of the Nvidia 'Maxwell' series.
      The VBIOS versions in this post are tweaked for performance and versatility. You'll get almost complete control over the performance parameters of your GPU.
      List of available VBIOS mods:
       
      Nvidia GTX 970m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 6 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments Nvidia GTX 980m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 8 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments  
      Screenshot demonstrating the capabilities of the 970m versions:

      >> Read the instructions carefully before flashing! <<
      If anything is unclear after reading or if you have additional remarks, please post in the thread.
       
      Flashing:
       
      - Go to the device manager -> 'Display Adapters' -> chooser your GPU, right click on it and choose disable
      - Flash the VBIOS with mnvflash, a modified version of nvflash (see attachments). Here are detailed instructions for nvflash in case you aren't familiar with it.
      - After the flashing is done: Enable the GPU once again in the device manager.
      - Reboot
       
      Do NOT use driver 347.09, it's broken and useless and won't allow you to overclock, even with the stock firmware.
      Don't distribute the files hosted here outside of Tech|Inferno. Don't modify the files you download here.
       
      Donation link in case you want to buy me a beer

      Thanks and cheers!

      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.
