Default 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.)
