I don't know the answer, but I'll tell you where I'd check. The first place would be in the graphics control panel. Often there is a slider for performance vs efficiency. The other is in the BIOS you have power saving options there which can alter the performance of the CPU.

Just be aware that if you get the laptop to run full tilt your battery will be toast in no time. My guess is less than an hour.

agreed you can oc your gpu, but it will drain your battery quick!
