Welcome to the M14X Gaming Thread

This is a place where we can discuss all and any game for the M14X. Any topic gaming related is welcome. For those that want to write a game review and how the game experience on the M14X is, I will take PMs and link or post them in the Original Post. Below I have attached some links of gaming videos from the Benchmarking thread. I will try and update this at least once a week. I can fill Post one with video links, reviews, ect.

If you have a game that you would like to know how it runs, or what the best settings are, this is the place you can request that kind of insight.

Any submissions of reviews/videos ect will be linked and credited to the original author. This can enable new users to get up to speed, and easily find information.

Thanks and can't wait to get some gaming details!

I will try my best to keep the links updated as much as possible! (Mods are welcome to help!)

Crysis 2 Advance Graphic Config Tool.

The M14x can play on the extreme config at about 21-25 fps stock. With overclock to 750/1000 it can maintain close to 30 fps. With this tool, you can remove FSAA, MSAA and AF and maintain well over 30fps. More like 34-40fps at extreme config.

Okay, so my tech knowledge is solid, but not on any type of uber level. My question is regqrding the Witcher and to a lesser extent Grand Theft Auto IV. Has Nybody he actually mangaged to get them running properly?

In the case pf both games I have been stuck with low res textures, something i imagine is an issue inherent to the Optimus, but perhaps somebody he knows a way around it.

If anybody has altered their ini file to put different drivers on and can test either of those two games, that would also be worth a look.

well I can't get past 800 / 1050 for the GPU so... I play games stable at 760 / 1050 - which is great. I do all my gameplay vids at the OC

      Hello to all can you help me change the graphics card?
      Alienware m17x r4
       i7 3610qm
      quadro k4100m
      display 120hz 3d
      bios a15
      trying to install 980m but not getting 5 or 8 beeps removed the battery and reset the bios. disabled legacy and secure boot in settings windows 10 gpt uefi
      help how to be?

      So I just received a 980m in the post and after installing it I was greeted by multiple system crashes on my Alienware m17xr4 and was unable to install new drivers.

      Is there a step in the intallation process I missed? A bios setting I was supposed to change? The laptop is already set to UEFI mode in preperation for this and upon putting the old 680m back in the system it now works again. I have heard that I need to change INI files to install drivers but I expected it to at least function without large bugs such as these. Do you think that this GPU is faulty or have I done something wrong?
       
      Thanks for any help you can give.

      Hi,
       
      I've recently got my hands on an M17x R4 Alienware Laptop from 2013 which I love. I've replaced the screen, keyboard, RAM, and hard drive to make it into a fully modern laptop. However, I'm currently waiting on a replacement for the 680m GPU with a 980m from ebay. My question for you all is, do I need to do anything with the BIOS to make this 980m work? Is there a way to prevent the laptop from using Intel HD Graphics with Optimus? I think the Intel HD Graphics on this laptop are currently broken as I see static-looking dots flash on the screen. (See image below for example). My theory is that because Intel HD Graphics with Optimus is still in-use while in-game, the dots are being caused by it.
       
      Thanks for any help in advance.
