View Full Version : Intel HD Graphics on G53SX?

10-12-2011, 03:13 PM
Hello again.
I have a program called AIDA64 which is the same/exact the program called Everest.
It says that it exist but is disabled.


isnt it better to enable it so the battery life gets better when running on battery?
how can I enable it so it works on powersaving/battery mode?

why does some sites sell customized g53sx with the opportunity to chose a 6Gb/s SSD?
is the g53sx Sata III compatible?
it have the Intel HM65 which is SATA III supported, but does the built-in connector must also support sata III speed? or is it only 1 speed (unlimited, unless the chipset limits it)?

1) You cannot enable the Intel Optimus graphics... the motherboard was designed to NOT support it for good reason.

2) The 2 HDD bays are SATA 3 ports, but due to notebook C-States, you will not get 100% speed, tho it will still be fast.

thank you for the fast answer, but I'd like to know those reasons to disable that GPU
and about the "notebook c-states", what are those? I tried googling it but I couldn't come up with something useful.
in other words, how much is that limit nearly?

Is there a way to disable the c-states, and what is the consequences with disabling it?
