    With the stock configuration, the GTX 460M automatically downclocks when you are not playing a game (or games). I'm not sure what the settings are when you overclock (use CPU-ID program to find out).

    not all time overclocked.i overclocked only for those benchmarks.the idle temps are 37-38 celsius and while gaming is higher was 62-63 both overclocked and stock.the cooling system is superb.

    All NVIDIA mobile GPUs from maybe last 3 years have at least 3 sets of frequencies, or power status.


    one is 2D (P0)
    one is low-power 3D (P1)
    one is 3D (P2)

    Since 9600M (or earlier) a new P3 power state been used for full-speed 3D.

    I'm not sure about P3, maybe it's just VBIOS reading error for those diagnostic tools.

    But downclocking for 2D is not new.

    guess i didnt think about what i was saying lol.. wouldnt make sense for the GPU to be runing full all the time

    but indeed it does down-volt itself when not plugged in

    All these have been in my 9600M GT.

    I forgot about how Geforce Go 7900GS did it but I am sure it also had some form of downclock and lower voltage when in 2D mode.

    So not news-worthy...:)

    Well my previous laptop, HP HDX16t, had 512MB DDR2 of VRAM in it...it could play some of the newer titles (at that time) with low-medium settings.

    yeah....
    desktop cards have the exact same capability.

    you'd think a GTX 580 constantly running at 3D clock, drawing 244W power plus full fan speed?

    :D

    cool down mate, dont worry, UPS ground did not change the status for my package for almost 60 hrs but it made it on time!

    I installed Forgotten Sands and started it on full settings 1920X1080 and 8x ani aliasing. There were a few frame drops, it wasn't flashing frames etc, but you would notice something was off. But then I turned off anti aliasing altogether, and its running ultra smooth now. No amount of dust or moving Zombies has any effect!
    And lets not forget here that I'm running this on Vista and not Windows 7!!
    Will do a lot more stuff over the weekend!

    Lol excellent :D I'm home now, and I'll start uploading the pictures today.

    Personally, I'm a PoP fanatic, but the latest game (based on the movie starring Jake Gyllenhall) is just a disappointment, unfortunately. I still bought and paid for it anyways, since I'm a die-hard fan :p

    No No, Forgotten sands is not based on the movie. It is actually a story set in the timeline between the first and the second game of the sands of time trilogy.
    I haven't completed it yet, but the review said that the story wasn't too strong, but the platforming was beyond awesome!
