Sniper, I need some help please. I don't think my computer is utilizing the Royal BNA drivers correctly. I say this because I've seen superior GPU-Z readings from another user ("usemyass") while he was using the same BNA driver and the same GM45 video card that I have. (See Below)
My GPU (LEFT), & "usemyass" GPU (RIGHT). The GPU-Z readings for "usemyass" came from the following post:http://teknogods.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=8319
I first tried the 126.96.36.199 driver but did not achieve any improvements in GPU-Z or noticeably in any games. I downgraded to 188.8.131.52 BETA (listed as 184.108.40.206) in hopes that I would find the performance gains "usemyass" had. As you can see, it failed.
According to the GPU-Z readings, usemyass has a 64 mb improvement, along with about 180 mhz increase in clock speed combined with added texture and pixel fillrates. We are both running the same GM45 GPU. We even have the same B3 revision. The only other thing I notice is our device ID's are different. His bios is "unknown" and our "Driver Versions" are listed as different. Is the Royal BNA driver even designed to improve clock speeds and fill rates?
Before you ask, Yes I made sure to uninstall the intel drivers through device manager deleting the drivers as well. I've also tried removing the drivers manually to make sure they were gone. I've also tried re installing multiple times. I'm out of ideas.
My Specs: Compaq CQ60-211DX; Intel Dual Core T7300; 2 GB RAM; Intel GMA 4500M (GM45);
Oh wise sages of technology hear my plea for help
