They'Ve released an update now and in the changelog. It says it now supports installation of the newest drivers on this right here so it's, the MX 150 with 2 gigabytes of dedicated ram, and it is pretty basic aliy the same as the 1030. Now the new driver is installed here, as you can see, which is now three eight five point, two eight so I've got that in there running, and then we have a quick look at what kind of difference it makes and then follow up on a few requests. I'Ve had people ask me if I can overclock the GPU and undervolt the CPU, which I will do later on so at the moment the CPU you can see here as at the stock voltage, I'll change it soon so I'm going to run Tomb Raider here. So this is the benchmark I've been using so to gauge the performance it's just easy for me here. So I'll run it first and we'll, see if the driver and proves anything and then we'll have a look at doing a little bit overclocking on the GPU. So, just to show you that these settings are the same as before. It'S the lowest preset 720p run that benchmark now and see the kind of results we get from. The driver update, there's a result, so nothing has really changed. 58 frames per second is the school that I got on the older driver, so the drivers has not really given us any boost there whatsoever now, that's fine.

So what I'm going to try now is to just do a little bit of overclocking on the GPU I'm. Going to under volt also the CPU so to do that I'm using intel extreme tuning utility and I'll see here the core voltage offset for me on my system. This is a stable undervolt. Now, if you go any higher, it will just give me a blue screen. Now, that's going to vary from CPU to CPU, so if you're going to be testing this out on your model, just keep going up in increments of 0.0 0.8. Do some asterisk in here as well that you have built into the extreme tuning utility. Now you can also increase the turbo power limits that I wouldn't touch that actually cuz that's, not the aim here. The aim here of under vaulting is just to try and lower the temperatures. A little, maybe it'll tip up a little bit higher. Now the overclock on the GPU here I have discovered that putting more clock on the GPU the core is really pointless because it's never going to get up to that boost, speed. So helpful up the information here. You can have a look on system information, so the maximum boost speed it will go up to while here it is 936, but it never gets up to that because it just doesn't have the the thermal Headroom to do this so it's pointless to add any clock To it, but what I've discovered that the memory clock this is going to seem crazy.

I can put a whole whopping gigabyte more of speed on there and that is perfectly stable. So it seems that what Nvidia have done or probably show me has under clocked the ran there a little bit so having that bonus here, let's now run that test again and see what kind of results we get keeping an eye to on these thermals. So it has given us a little bit of a boost. I can see already 96 frames per second. This is just the start of the benchmark, but I'll skip ahead now to the results, so the GPU Ram overclocked has given us approximately 5 frames per second average booster, which isn't too bad that's, not a bad gain there. So I will actually try putting a little bit of higher clocks on the core clock here of the GPU so and tweak this up now. I just put first, even though it's probably not going to allow me to do this on many of these key data in 50, megahertz more on the clock and we'll see what happens for some reason: that's not sitting there. We go ok, so that's, given a tiny little boost more, you can see it's just gone up a frame or two more so it's, not bad, but let's have a look and see if I can even push that further. Now I was thinking of the CPU GPU clock. Sorry was completely pointless tweaking that, but I'll try this as high as 70, because the thermals are actually still quite good we're, not getting too hot on there.

So far I can see the maximum GPU temperature has been 70 degrees here, which is fine, so we'll try plus 75, hopefully it's not going to lock up on me now. If you see any artifacts or things like that, then you know that you're overclocking too much, and you really need to tweak back those speeds that you're putting on here. Of course, you do all of this at your own risk, so there we go that actually loved. This caused a little so boosting that GPU clock really isn't that beneficial at all, but you can get a little bit as you've seen from tweaking up the RAM there so now to have a look at thermals. I do have HW info running in the background here and oh actually, no, I don't that has closed itself off for some reason, but I can check here. You can see that the CPU package temperature maximum temperature is 75 degrees, so that is perfectly fine. And now, if we go back and have a look in MSI Afterburner, the maximum GPU temperature is 70 to 72 degrees. So those temperatures are perfectly fine where it does get. Of course, like I pointed out in my gaming review, and my full review of this laptop is just here just above the vents that gets up to actually go there, we go 47, almost 48 degrees, so very toasty to the touch there it's almost getting up to It feels like it's going to burn new kind of material there so that's why? I always recommend, with this laptop, if you are going to be gaming for extended periods, get yourself a laptop cooler, that's, probably going to help out a lot too, with just improving performance.

Maybe but I won't actually be testing that myself, because I really do not like laptop coolers, I, like Portability and a machine that I can just pack up and put in a bag and I'll have to lug around an extra accessory for it. So there you go. You can see that the drivers made absolutely no difference in performance, but we can do a little bit of under vaulting and overclocking there of the GPU to boost things up around. What is that about eight or ten percent performance which isn't too bad? Considering that's free performance there that we're getting and I'll run that for a couple of days now with zero problems, I haven't noticed any artifacts from the memory, so it seems to handle that extra 1000 mega Hertz on the memory clock perfectly fine.
