    40 on medium
    Bit disappointing to be honest. Was expecting the M14x to hit that on high and 30fps on Ultra Still not bad tho

    Perhaps a 20% GPU over clock is called for..

    Rgr that. Make sure your actual video card settings have Ambient Occlusion off as was as the Ansio low too.

    Wait guys, is it better to have turbo boost on or off? I don't even see turbo boost on my m14x computer....

    ...I'm downloading the "built for beta" nvidia drivers and will try turning off the ansio and ambient occlusion....

    To turn off Turbo Boost, you need to go to BIOS (F2 when you turn your laptop on)

    If your Turbo Boost off, then it will stay at whatever default clock of your CPU, and no auto OC, so then it would mean less heat and less extra Ghz result from that Turbo Boost.

    So with the turbo boost disabled, without a gpu overclock, is there a massive difference in frame rates, say in Crysis 2, battlefield bad company 2, and games like that?

    Say if I go and disable it right now, not touch another thing, will there be a drop in fps?

    Cause from the results above with BF3 it seems that the cpu really doesn't matter...


    Edit: what I'm trying to get at is, is the GPU a bottle neck for the CPU?

    I think everyone is missing the point with this turboboost issue. The fact of the matter is it is a design fault and we should in no way be having to resort to turning it off or using third party software to control the cpu.

    The bottom line is its a design flaw in the laptop cooling that should be being addressed by DELL / Alienware.

    I am surprised the community is so accepting of having to use workrounds on an expensive laptop that is not working as it should be.

    Default BF3 Beta + No Turbo Boost

    So, I ran BF3 with no Turbo Boost, and got 5FPS more than with it on. (repeated results).

    Shouldn't it be the other way around?

    Your right the laptop should work default with out any exceptions. I will be calling Alienware this week to have them replace my laptop due to overheating after they exchanged my heatsink/fan. I shouldn't have to sacrifice performance/speed by turning off my turbo boost to save the temperature on my laptop. It should work and be cool regardless.
