    Has anyone here had any luck getting the 660m to boost or overclock? The clocks don't seem to boost to 950mhz even when its not even hot.

    Do you use max setting in Lenovo energy manager ? Because it's going turbo to 950 Mhz for sure, checked it myself.

    Yeah, I can confirm this. I've tested this just yesterday.

    thanks guys! I didn't know you had o set it to lenovo dynamic setting to enable boosting!. Btw with MSI afterburner you can get it boosted to 1085mhz on the core

    How about if you don't install the Lenovo energy management software? I never bothered to install it after my clean install.

    When I start up afterburner, my clock says 835. As soon as I launch a game, it jumps to 950.

    Not using the lenovo energy software. Don't see a need to. In fact, it seems like it's worse since you have to run it on the max setting to enable the gpu to run at full power. Without it, just using the windows power control, even at the balanced settings, the gpu kicks in at the full 950 when it's supposed to.

    First image is Diablo 3 running windowed and I have clicked outside the game window. The gpu immediately throttles.

    Second image is clicked in the game window making it active. The gpu immediately goes to the full 950. These shots are taken on the balanced power setting.

    I too don't use this software. I just changed Windows settings to max performance.

    Download nvidia inspector and click unlock max. But for more voltage you need a modded vBIOS

    This notebook seems interesting
