    I was able to up the frame rate by reinstalling the latest nVidia drivers with a clean install. This was done by selecting Custom -> Clean Install during the driver installation.

    It's very curious that the manufacturer states that the card has 3GB of video ram but the DxDiag tool only finds 719 MB. According to another post on the Tested.com forum (http://www.tested.com/forums/please-...orrect/11899/?) the card doesn't actually have 3 GB of memory on board and that the majority of it is shared memory. Now it is prudent to point out that the individual assisting in this matter (in the tested.com forum) gets his facts wrong and the solution, in that case, was what Thomas had suggested.

    Below is a quote from Asus regarding the nVidia geforce GTX 560m.
    I'm afraid you're reading it wrongly. While some notebook GPUs (expecially CPU-integrated graphics) use systme RAM this one does not. The card does indeed have 3GB dedicated GDDR5 chips in it.

    Display Memory indicates actual memory IN USE at that time, while Dedicated Memory is 3034MB (your 3GB). Shared Memory is another term altogether and I THINK it's a modern term for what used to be called the AGP Aperture - basically the amount of system RAM it dedicates for graphics based caching to feed your GPU.

    Glad you got this sorted though

    Warning though: the latest Nvidia drivers have a bug on 560Ms and S3 states (hibernation). So if you use hibernation the display might not come out of standby. This is why our website still has 267 drivers on it.

    No worries. I don't use hibernation, but thank you for the tip.
