    No. Laptops have their graphics chips soldered to the motherboard. They are not actual "cards."

    No. Next best thing is software overclocking

    ATI Tools for windows does an excellent job in this regard. Of note, stay away from Omega drivers, they're fairly unstable and don't like the added strain of overclocking.

    I went back to boot camp drivers and used ATI tool to overclock and had much better results compared to Omega drivers and overclocking, in regards to stability.
