Default Re: 8400M GS : Low performences

@fuchs:
You're getting 12 seconds where I'm getting 50...are you using a powemizer hack? during those operations my perf level has sunk down to 0...if I peg it at 2 it's closer to your results.
Small script which causes powermizer to stay on level 2
as long as the notebook is connected to a AC power source.
So yes, I'd call this hack as well, but best thing until nvidia
makes it configurable otherwhise.

Posted it here about twice, but:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

while true; do
    
    powerstate=`cat /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/AC/state | awk '{print $2}'`
    
    if [ $powerstate = "on-line"  ]; then
       nvidia-settings -q all > /dev/null
    fi
    sleep 25;
done
You might have to change it according to your
/proc/acpi/ac_adapter/AC/state
(or even change this path)

hth,

Fuchs
