    970m Overclocking

    So I've owned a G75 in the past with a GTX 660m. Like the 600m the 970m and other laptop graphics chips are limited to 135+ on clock. But given how low temps are on this machine, it can definitely go higher. I used to force PStates on my 660m to go over the limit, and saw a very significant boost. Can the same be done on the 970m? The only other option to overclock over the 135+ limit would be a custom vbios, anyone tested or found anything?

    I think someone did find because I've seen GTX980M 8GB with a 1288Mhz core clock on 3D Mark Firestrike. I think it was a Clevo or an MSI. But it seems that these guys found a way to pass over 1260Mhz. My 3dMark Firestrike runs are only pushing the Gtx980m to a 1173Mhz even when I'm overclocking to 1260Mhz. The TurboBoost doesn't seem to work in 3DMark ...

    Srry for the long one but I was maybe thinking that you might know how to get a full turbo boost in 3d Mark .

    Btw, I've also owned a G75VW but with a GTX670m. I was also keeping that baby overclocked to +135Mhz and +400Mhz memory all the time. The temps were even lower than this GTX980m with stock clocks ). So, yeah, I guess that card could have gotten past 135Mhz overclock easily.

    Did you try maxing all the sliders related to turbo boost with Intel XTU? Don't know but that could help.

    I was talking about the GPU not the CPU .

    @Kingkaan: It's nice, but could you also put the frequencies of the core/memory used ? The people with Gtx980m won't understand too much from this score because they have quite different ones. Thank you!

    Definitely. im using a custom vbios allowed me to add almost +500 on the core. my core is at 1400 mhz my mem is at 6000 overclocked using gpu tweak. and beat gtx 980m stock clocks. stock 980m usually gets 12k on 3dmark11. a few other people on youtube were able to do this this card is a beast has a lot of overclocking potential.

    the gtx 970m will never have the same performance as 980m,no matter what OC do u have it will be under gtx980m
    the gtx 980 is 15-20% better than gtx 970m,but with OC the 970m will get as close as 5-10% under the gtx980

    keep in mind that the comparison is with stock clock at 980m,with OC the 980m will be the same as 970 desktop version

    well sorry to burst your bubble my card is better than 980m stock clocks in any game any benchmark i've tested it next to 980m laptop right side by side. this is not a %5 %10 overclock. get your facts straight we are talking about going 500 mhz on the core that's %30 not %10. please stop talking out of your butt. im talking about results with facts here not my ideas.
