How to Maximize Performance of GTX 285M
We are benchmarking a new Clevo laptop with a GTX 285M and are getting some pretty pathetic performance numbers. Just about 25% of the performance of a desktop GTX 285.
When I connect to the machine with the benchmark running, it says the current clock frequencies are just 275,301, and not the maximum 600,1000 I would expect.
I've tried disabling PowerMizer:
Option "RegistryDwords" "PowerMizerEnable=0x0"
and I've tried enabling it:
Option "RegistryDwords" "PowerMizerEnable=0x1; PerfLevelSrc=0x2222; PowerMizerDefault=0x1; PowerMizerDefaultAC=0x1"
but neither has any effect.
When I open the nvidia-settings GUI, the PowerMizer tab shows the higher 2 perf levels grayed out. Why would that be?
What do I need to put in my xorg.conf in order to ensure the GPU runs at its maximum performance level?
(I don't care about battery life or fan noise.)
