  1. NVIDIA Geforce 306.97 WHQL Changelog: Download link: Nvidia Geforce 306.97WHQL (Recommended driver for Windows 8 launch!) (M18X-R1 Clevo GTX680m ini files from 306.23 driver provided by @Brian should work, because my GTX660m ini file provided by @svl7 G73JwGTX660m thread works)
  2. Looks like nVidia is not going to let AMD rain on their parade with the Catalyst 12.11. Today marks the release of nVidia's R310 driver which promises performance improvements for its new Kepler cards. Release Highlights (click spoiler) Download Links Notebook: 64 bit Windows 7/8/Vista Geforce 310.33 BETA 32 bit Windows 7/8/Vista Geforce 310.33 BETA Desktop: 64 bit Windows 7/8/Vista Geforce 310.33 BETA 32 bit Windows 7/8/Vista Geforce 310.33 BETA
  3. DOWNLOAD LINK: http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst1211betadriver.aspx Well AMD has finally done some nice work and created a new performance driver that does what it claims. BF3 is seeing up to 20% gains in performance and it now puts the GCN based Radeon's on par with Kepler's best (680/680M). Since we're working on an nVidia 680M SLI vs AMD 7970M Xfire article, I'll have to scrub our initial benchmark results and try out the Catalyst 12.11's instead. Good timing AMD... From Anandtech:
  4. With continually dwindling marketshare and poor growth, AMD's fortunes have been taking a turn for the worst for quite awhile now. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that keeps a close eye on the tech sector although what may be eye opening is the fact that this round of lay offs will include engineers. Rumor has it that the engineers to be laid off are the ones in Canada and Charlie from SA makes it seem like this is the result if mismanagement and will seal AMD's fate. Personally I think he's over sensationalizing the entire situation. Yes, AMD is in deep trouble financially because their CPU division has not been competitive for years, especially with their recent CPU architectures being utter failures compared to their Intel counterparts. However, upon closer inspection, you will notice that the engineers in Canada are not the core team of AMD engineers--those guys are located in Sunnyvale, California. The main GPU design team is also in Sunnyvale, CA. The Canadian division did have a smaller GPU + Catalyst team out there but AFAIK, the key guys were moved to California awhile back. Furthermore, AMD has been ratcheting up their AMD India development team who have been busy making SoC's and graphics chips for the company. This enables AMD to pick up engineers at a much cheaper price in a rapidly developing region (India/China/Pakistan etc). The argument that quality will suffer can't be made either because industry giants like Microsoft, Intel, IBM and others employ a huge chunk of Indian/Pakistani engineers that are on their chip development teams. So will this be a good or bad thing for AMD in the long run? In the short term, AMD is hemorrhaging market share and money and they need to consolidate quickly. This round of lay offs may be the beginning of a larger restructuring that the company desperately needs to survive. Another avenue AMD should consider is getting an ARM license like their rival nVidia has done with Tegra. While nVidia faces stiff competition from Samsung, Qualcomm and others, it isn't as intense as the 800 lb gorilla known as Intel. Intel has basically made AMD unviable in the x86 market (consumer and server) so their only way of surviving is to start focusing heavily on low power SoC for smartphones and tablets. The PC is in decline in general and AMD is very late to the party. AMD India: http://www.amd.com/in/aboutamd/Pages/aboutamd.aspx
  5. As you may or may not know, enabling IGP via FN+F7 does not work when a Clevo 680M is used in the M18x. However, when an unlocked bios is used, you can go into the advanced menu section, then video configuration and force IGP as the primary display (rather than PEG). Once the system reboots, it'll be in IGP mode BUT and I can't stress this enough, DO NOT press FN+F7 to switch back to discrete else your system will go into an endless loop. If that happens, you have to take out the 680M and blind flash the system with a recovery usb. So save yourself the trouble and don't press FN+F7. To re-enable the PEG, just turn it back on as primary in the bios and reboot. I've been playing with the PowerXpress settings but none seem to be able to work with regards to FN+F7, I figured dynamic would do it but apparently not. UPDATE: The PARTIAL fix is very simple Download the unlocked A05 M18x-R1 Bios Boot into the Bios, go to advanced-->video configuration and change the display from PEG to SG (switchable graphics). Keep PowerXpress as FIXED MUX. Reboot and now you will be able to use FN+F7 to switch between discrete and IGP. NOTE: You will again need to set SG in the bios after using FN+F7 one time since it resets back to PEG. Thanks to @johnksss for the SG tip.

  7. So after reading endless discussions on another forum with respect to the 7970M and 680M and which is truly the better buy, I wrote the following response: This has been on my mind for quite sometime and once we rev up T|I reviews again in the future (we will likely have to hire full-time writers since admins are too busy), I plan to implement a scoring system similar to what I described above. I'd like to hear what our members think of my proposal as well as your own suggestions.

  10. I was reading an article about Nvidia having better image quality than AMD for the same settings. The reason I decided to create this thread though is after reading this review and particularly that specific part and since we have forum members that have tried both cards on their laptops (ie 460M), I was wondering if you noticed the same thing.

  14. Help HP HDX 18t 1200-CTO w/ Nvidia GT130M and Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000 the issue is i have two identical comps like that i work on one my brothers and the other my mothers... my moms keeps temps in check and even undervolted q9000 to 1.05v from 1.25~ did the same on my brothers... the prob is these comps have one fan and one copper pipe going over the cpu and gpu causing havok when cpu or gpu heats up. Now my moms handles good it was previously mine and i kept it clean... 3 years oldish on stock paste. My brothers constant overheat probs i even repasted his on gpu and cpu.... so i need help as i have no experience on nvidia vbios flashing and editing downloaded nhibitor and nvflash and went to backup file in windows and it wont recognize eeprom as it says. help i can create a bootable usb drive have one from flashing ATi cards.... onece i have bios backup i can reflash with a little less volts hopefully running much cooler. Any links on directions on backing up bios and flashing outside of windows on nvidia hardware... i dont think its MXM is that a prob? my moms i'm even able to run a small overclock of 680-550-1700... core,mem,shader... stock is 600-500-1500 and dont get high temps even on Skyrim yes couldn't belive with graphics lowered enough this plays decent on here.
  15. HP HDX 18/ Intel Core 2 Duo Q9000 @2ghz/ Nvidia GT130M /Blu-ray Rom CD/DVD-RW/ 500gb 7.2K RPM *Feel free to make fun of my second paste job, first re-pasting job ever. (I Know that was a horrible smear of paste) There was definitely 20-30 degree F drop in temperature under heavy usage and greater during idle. This is my brothers system I cleaned out.

  16. Do you believe that Dell is trying to include the 580M instead of the 485M and therefore delaying the release? If that's the reason, then I wouldn't mind the waiting.
  17. Which one would you prefer and why?
  18. If you were one of the thousands that tried to get Metro2033 for free from nVidia and found your key subsequently deactivated, nVidia has a new offer. They're e-mailing everyone a "sorry for deactivating your free game" message along with a $5.00 off coupon code when you pre-order Homefront and receive Metro2033 for free. I went for it, figured Homefront is a steamworks game so I'll just use the key they give me on steam when it's released. I did the same for Metro2033 and it worked great.
