of mobile chips! I don’t understand why this is available on Windows, but disabled in Linux. I understand the heat issues, but Linux users tend to be more knowledgeable than Windows users. Why do we get this restriction and they don’t?
I spent an entire day trying to get overclocking working, just to find out it’s disabled on my laptop and on my HTPC. I then spent the rest of the day trying to trick the driver into thinking it was a desktop. And no, GPU BIOS mods won’t work as the GPU firmware is integrated into the system BIOS.
My HTPC is an old 7150m that stutters a little in some SD video. I’ve modded it to idle at only 24C CPU/ 35C GPU. My laptop is a 9600m GS with stock clocks of 430/400 core/mem. In windows it can safely go up to 590/485 under stress-testing.
Please, please, PLEASE, is there anything I can do? Modify the install files? Pass an option to my modprobe.conf? If not, could you implement a “NVreg_IsMobile” modprobe.conf option I could set to “0”?
