IMac :: Possible To Overclock 5670HD - FPS Improvements

Aug 13, 2010

Would it be possible to overclock the 5670HD in the 21.5" iMac? I heard somewhere, judging by the device ID, that it is a 5730M card. I have been watching the thread on clocking the 5850M, and seeing the great FPS improvements, so was wondering if it would be in anyway possible to do it to the 5730M. Heres what it says in System Profiler:

ATI Radeon HD 5670:
Chipset Model:ATI Radeon HD 5670
PCIe Lane Width:x16
VRAM (Total):512 MB
Vendor:ATI (0x1002)
Device ID:0x68c0
Revision ID:0x0000
ROM Revision:113-B9850H-133
EFI Driver Version:01.00.416

Mac Pro :: 285-> 5870 Same Fps SC2?

Jan 13, 2011

i have a 2008 mac pro 2xQuad 2.8 GHz 4GB RAM

I just upgraded from nvidia 285 to ati 5870. The FPS in Starcraft 2
did not go up. Its almost exactly the same.

I was suprised so i check the CPU usage.Its at 115% (of 800, 100 per core)
spred out over the cores. So the CPU doesnt seem to be the problem.There are over 1 GB free of RAM,little disk and network usage.

I run 10.6.6 it was just reinstalled before the upgrade.

No other download avalible.i tried reinstalling SC2, same.

PowerPC :: G5 FPS VS Intel - Speced Graphics Card

Nov 3, 2006

Why is it that an Imac G5 doesn't perform nearly as well as even the Core duos in terms of FPS?Why is it that the PPC artictechture seems to not be able to run games as well, even with a comparably speced graphics card?I can't really seem to formulate my question:Let's pretend we have two computers that are exactly the same speed. (Yes I know Intel macs are way faster than PPC)WHY oh why would the PPC computer do terribly compared to the Intel?

Mac Pro :: Flashed 4870 And 10.6.3 - Terrible Fps Since The Update?

Apr 1, 2010

by following the very active community you have set up for the scene of flashing PC cards to work under OS X I myself bought a 4870 XFX ZWFL & ZWFC 1GB and flashed it.This occurred about one month ago, and since then the card has been working flawlessly, so a big thanks for that.

A very nasty problem occurred after the 10.6.3 update tho, as since then I started having horrible fps's in any application that required 3d acceleration (say, World of Warcraft); down from a rock steady 50-60fps (that easily topped the 120 mark) i can barely get a 30fps after the update.

I checked the other topics, and all of them pointed me into downloading the last version of Zeus and update the drivers, wich I did for every time an update (or fix for a fix) as been released, and tried every time to install both before and after the reboot from the 10.6.3 combo update.

I'm using only one monitor, so I did not encounter any problem concerning dvi ports not working or anything.

Windows On Mac :: Vista 64bit For Games But What If The Games Are Not 64bit?

Mar 7, 2009

I was told to run Vista 64bit for games, but I was wondering about this� Since many applications don�t even have a 64bit version out and I don�t think games are 64bit, will they all run under vista 64bit? I have a feeling this might be a dumb question, but I just wanted to make sure before I go out and buy Vista 64.

Also do you think windows 7 is better for games? Will it even run games that have not been written for it? Or would I just be better sticking with vista 64 until everyone has caught up and made their apps compatible with the new windows 7? I mean will antivirus programs, ripping apps, etc work under windows 7 without a hitch, or should I wait and just use vista64 for now?

I have an .mpeg file that says it is 29.97 frames per second, but when ever I press play, it plays at about 23.976 frames per second. I'm trying to convert the file to an .mov file that is 23.976 fps and plays at 23.976 fps, but every time I try the result looks choppy. Does anyone know how I can convert a strange file like this to a proper, 23.976 fps file, preferably an .mov?

PowerPC :: To Increase RAM

Dec 27, 2008

I have a PowerPC G4 466 Mhz which has three "PC133" thingies in it, one 128 MB and two 256 MB, totalling 640 MB.

I want to change those to one, two or three 512 MB cards instead, but the manual says something about there being certain restrictions for 512 cards. Translated from Swedish:"If you install DIMM-modules of 512 MB they must have 256 Mb-units". What does that mean exactly and how do I check that they in fact have "256 Mb-units"?

Jun 24, 2010

My Apple ADC Studio Display has decided to stop all of it USB ports from working and as anyone who knows about these monitors you need to connect the monitor to a USB port to get the Brightness control to work, are there any apps out there which can control the brightness of the monitor up or down. I have played around with Calibration but I still cannot change the brightness of the screen. I have searched around for some solutions but all I have found is brightness controls which turn down the brightness but do not allow you to adjust the brightness up
