    For some reason Dell 680Ms seem to score less than Clevo 680Ms.
    Dell get 5700 in GPU score and 6700-ish with OC, while Clevo get 6100 in GPU score and 7200 with OC.
    Have no idea why.

    So I`m pretty shure Clevo with SLI will score better than that.

    Maybe the turboboost settings are screwed up between cards? Maybe a Clevo vbios flash might fix the speed problem?

    Yeah not impossible that the turbo boost is causing the "problems". Clevo have no turbo boost so :)

    Its a bit weird though, since the Dell is clocked 40MHz higher (with turbo boost) so it should in theory score better too with stock benching?

    Maybe a subtle throttle/downclock issue or driver problems then on Dell cards? It wouldn't be the first time...:rolleyes:

    Here is a comparison so that everyone is aware of the current situation. Look at the Graphic scores of each to get an idea:

    #1: Dell 680M:
    (Comment: Subtle throttling like technos mention above? Lowest Graphic score of the three)

    #2: Clevo 680M:





    #3: MSI 680M:
    (Comment: Pretty shure that this GPU is greatly hindered by the 900MHz memory with these settings)

    Perhaps they could try setting prefer maximum performance under the nvidia control panel? For the dell, that is - as I see the other two are running at 2.0 link speed, but Dell's is at 1.1. At least remove it as a variable.

    Edit: looks like the BIOS's are different as well - dell A2 to the other's FF.
