Mobility Graphics Throttling

Recommended Posts

Recently, my friend bought a laptop with DUAL-Nvidia GTX580M(you know which alien laptop what i meandry.gif). Sometimes, he experiencing stuttering when playing Metro 2033 on Steam.....

When i saw the adapter spec, it listed like this:19.5V = 15.4A. My question: is that adapter is delivering enough power to the laptop?

You think the company will give you an adapter that doesn't even power the laptop fully? lol i am sure its enough.

 

What resolution is it? 1920x1080? What settings is he using to play it on?

Metro 2033 is just a bitch of a game to get to play smoothly. If he has hardware PhysX enabled, that's going to drag performance down.

Did you check the graphs in MSI Afterburner to see if it's actually throttling, if the computer dies while it's playing a game after a couple hours than that is a sign of a bad adapter...

It's not graphics throttling. It is the issue of running more than one card on a laptop. MXM is not the greatest, and certainly doesn't work well with Crossfire or SLI. Sometimes you get the stuttering, sometimes you don't.

@Goth

Yeah, the game set to 8xMSAA

@IVI

Nah, i use GPU-Z to check the clock and yes, it throttle back to 327MHz couple seconds in gaming then back to default after back into windows

@TP

I wonder how OEMs test the hardware though
