hi im new to the forums i just have one quick question
im thinking of buying a Dell XPS should i get the 540m or pay extra for the 550m. I heard that they are the same chip just ones running a higher clock speed.
So I just wondered if GPU temp wasnt a problem can i not just overclock the 540m to the 550m clock speeds and if so does that give the 540m the same performance as the 550m or is there other factors that stops it from being as powerful
I thought both the 540m and 550m had optimus (were it flips to onboard Intel graphics to save power) any way my question was less about how possible it was and more to do with does it give the same performance clocking the 540m to 550m specs
Well that depends, I doubt you will be able to because mobile gpu's run hot! But you might be able to hit those clocks, possibly stable. Remember, there are a lot of factors when it comes to overclocking.
