Can you boost the GPU output on a 2009 imac?

Im asking on behalf of someone else who owns a 2009 21" imac with a GeForce 9400 and was wondering if there is some way of boosting the GPU output. I was wondering if there is prehaps an option you can select or even a 3rd part app with could help. Any help appreciated

You can't boost a GPU with software (apps).
As far as i know there is no way to "boost" a gpu at all.
Just keep your drivers up2date (on windows - on mac u can't update drivers)
