Cannot overclock laptop graphics card
I'm struggling to overclock my 8600m GT in Linux Mint (Ubuntu derivative)...
I've enabled Coolbits but auto detect is greyed out in the X Server Settings, also when I manually change the settings it immediately defaults back.
Is GPU overclocking of laptops disabled on Linux? As I was previously able to with Windows?
I'm using the 256.35 drivers.
Also Nvclock will not adjust settings.
I can however software overclock in Windows, and I suppose if push comes to shove use NiBiTor but i'd prefer not to do this for fear of bricking it! :)
Any assistance greatly appreciated.
Re: Cannot overclock laptop graphics card
What you observe is "normal" for both nvidia-settings and nvclock. I don't remember anyone ever managing to software OC a mobile linux system.
For most people that's probably ok since if you really need that last bit of performance it's usually for a windows game...
