[m17x R5] New 970m installed - Clock speed low
SmellyLlama posted a topic in Alienware M17x / AW 17Hi everyone, hopefully someone can help. I have successfully (to a fashion) installed a new 970m in my laptop, it is discovered in the BIOS and Device Manager. The card seems to run, I can see it in GPU-Z and the temperature and clock speeds are displayed in GPU-Z. Windows 10 installed the driver on it's own and I modded and installed the latest NVIDIA driver 361.43. I'm seeing a low score (lower than my 860m) in 3Dmark and a lower clock speed (540Mhz) instead of what I would expect (somewhere around 900). Guessing I need to install an earlier driver, the optimus switching isn't working on the FN+F5, but I'm not sure which driver to choose as the older recommended one doesn't show in the NVIDIA search. i7-4710MQ 16GB DDR3 PC3-12800 480 mSATA 256 SSD ST500 Hybrid SSD BIOS version A14. I've attached a screenshot from 3Dmark for reference. Anything else I can supply to help? Cheers
