I have not a single clue. I figured it would cause super heat problems, but just curious because if I added fans or something it might work out ok. But then again I don't even have one yet.=me hate windows I don't know, but if it is, overclocking things in laptops usually isnt the smartest thing to do. Some MBPs seem to have a bunch of heat problems already. And how would you go about overclocking it?
Oh yeah. Damn to bad... but oh well can't complain 256 is so sweet... was just in the marked for 512...Sun Baked said:Could possibly be underclocked, but that does not mean it's ripe for boosting it back to where you think it should be.
Apple's configuration could mean they traded 1mm for a heatsink with a lower capacity -- requiring Apple to turn down the clock.
It happens ... engineers do it all the time when a new design fails to meet expectations requiring a cheap hack to kick it out the door.
When you say 425/450 what does that mean. 425/450 Mbs like 256 mb video card/ 512 mb video card? or whatremowilliams said:According to what I've read it would appear the GPU clocks on MBP17 are higher than the stock MBP15s. I'm showing 425/450 on my MBP17 as the default without playing with the clock speeds.
Yeah, but the thing may be underclocked because the casing on the 15" is smaller and can't handle the same amount of heat. Anyway, I wouldn't mess with it.n8236 said:Technically speaking, by bumping back the GPU to its original spec, it's not really "overlocking." If pushing the GPU past its designed speed, then that would warrant what is called "overclocking" imo.
It is still hard to tell whether it is the heat, battery life, or marketting purposes for the reason Apple underclocked the gpu.Abstract said:Yeah, but the thing may be underclocked because the casing on the 15" is smaller and can't handle the same amount of heat. Anyway, I wouldn't mess with it.
