?? I have a C2D T7500 and a 8600m GT and I got better than that at default clocks (around 4700)... with a slight overclock (+20MHz +30mems) I got over 5000 points :) Your score should be at least 4900 or something like that :)

That's called resolution. You ran it in 1024x768 an he did it in 1280x1024

Okays I've got an ASUS F3Sc notebook w/ 8400M G graphics card, installed this driver just two days ago.

PowerMizer now works correctly, yay haha~ :)

It seems many of you are having trouble with this driver on battery, however I tried it today and OC works for me. :)

All I did was:

1) install the driver

2) uninstalled the existing nTune tool, manual reboot

3) redownloaded & installed nTune from nVidia website

4) setup tool to OC using rules and profiles

So now basically it would only OC for performance when I need to game, eg CNC3, BFME2, Generals & BF2142. Saves power & cuts down heat / noise.

Also remember to create another rule to turn off OC when you exit the game application!

I hope this would help those of you who couldn't get OC working on battery.

Just tried these out with my dell xps m1730 with the dual 8800M GTX's, and I the stock drivers performed slightly better than these, I also tried the 174.16, they sucked even harder. Tested both with SLI on in Crysis, 3DMark etc..

It allows you to install NVIDIA drivers compatible with only Desktops for Laptops. There might also be a change in performance/quality in some modified infs.
