Benchmark results for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M

Recommended Posts

zipper

New toy, new benchmarks. First benchmark on pretty basic Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit install.

default clocks 500/800/1250 - about 10% lower than NVidia specs...
Well, a hot bugger, 94 C with benchmarks

Guest HIGUAIN

hows the card so far for gaming?

What games have you tried?

They run on all maxed out settings?

It's going to take some time to get software to be installed; I don't expect miracles as the best single card laptops benchmark about twice as fast. No max settings for latest games - at least not on my external screen.

197.16 added, with nvam.inf, better than the default driver.

Seems that about 10% overclock is enough, temperatures remain about the same but 5% more gave BSODs on Vantage.

Idle hovers around 59 - 62; max seems to be 94, no greater effect if overclocked or not.

Resident Evil 5 default benchmark gave 59 fps, pretty playable. Dirt2 about 50-60 fps, Crysis 20-30 fps. I tried 1600x1024 - 1280x800 and 2x AA which mostly is OK. So the highest settings is best to forget with the heaviest games, but you can use quite high yet. My Quadro FX1600 (=8700/9600M GT) does about 60% less fps than GTX 260M.

Guest James

how does bad company 2 run or modern warfare 2 if you have those games?

Cheers.

I heard this gpu is the best value for money on the market.

Also what were the other specs of your unit?

CPU

RAM etc.

Nope. I'd imagine BC2 to run just between 20 and 30 fps with high settings. Performance/price value is pretty good. Here is a good article:

Now 197.44 notebook WHQL tried. About equal to 197.16. OpenCL doesn't work re GPU-Z.

189.74 WHQL driver does twofold results; not too good at Vantage but the older benchies are the best so far. Problems with NTune - it doesn't show up in the NVidia Control Panel.

...OK, seems that PhysX isn't working even when Control Panel claims it's on.

197.59 with modified inf gives the best benchmarks so far especially on Vantage. DirectCompute doesn't work re GPU-Z.

197.59 overclock tests - good results except 3DMark05, which seems not to accept anything but a tiny amount of overclocking.

Now 197.75 with modified inf - very similar to 197.59; no problems. No DirectCompute.

Tried 197.44 again - the results are still pretty lame; back to 197.75.

197.85 Quadro driver tested with the modified inf - good and even benchmarks in different categories, almost on the top.

257.15 brief test with desktop+modified inf and the laptop version, too. Extremely crap, just like when 101.xx came out. Doesn't recognize my external screen. Control Panel changes for 3D do not save. Worst performance so far - but as 3D settings can't be tweaked into my defaults, may not be comparable. Hurried back to 197.85.

Tested again with the fixed inf. External monitor and Control Panel do work, decent benchmarks but nothing special.
