    You paid $2000 for a 'gaming' laptop that has an 800M in it?

    Read the installer properly instead of spamming "next"

    I don't think he means the 800M specifically, he said 800 series.

    There aren't any desktop 800 parts.

    Anybody know if you should enable "Prefer Max Performance" while using the new Nvidia FPS limiter? Nvidia said themselves in their release article for the limiter that "Prefer Max Perf" + FPS limit would reduce latency while Optimal would consume less power, but in all the tests I've seen from years past Optimal Power performs the same as Prefer Max in almost all cases nowadays so did something change with the new Nvidia limiter then or what? Thanks,

    Can people please stop saying that their ancient hardware is still that much worth? You have old crap deal with it. NVIDIA is not to blame geez

    Probably because using Optimal + FPS limit could make your GPU clock down depending on the game.
    If your FPS limit is very aggressively low compared to what FPS you could be getting, your GPU usage could be low enough that Optimal would downclock a lot more than Max Performance.

    Driver seems good so far. No issues on my end.

    I'd prefer if people stopped just telling others their hardware is ancient and shouldn't be supported. Stop excusing Nvidia for everything.

    AMD does still support all their mobile GCN parts for that matter. And both Nvidia's and AMD's high tier GPUs in these series can still play modern games, better than the consoles, as long as there aren't driver issues.

    People on unsupported chipsets could switch to Linux. Nvidia still support legacy devices with their new drivers, and it's not like you can use run games anyway. Steam with Proton should run games old enough for that hardware.

    Once again, one of you "GPU is old" guys go a tirade about them not being able to play games and show you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

    This nonsense you're spouting is exactly what gives the console camp fire about a PC having to be upgraded each two years.

    I'm not disagreeing. Nvidia should support legacy chipsets in their Windows drivers. In fact, I pointed out that they do still support them in Linux to show that they could also do it in Windows if they wanted to.

    In practical terms, the solution for longer support might be to look at Linux, that's all.

    Why? I like to be honest. What's wrong with that?

    I never said that they should stop supporting legacy stuff just to deal with it. Your $2000 Laptop is not in it's prime anymore. You had like 6 years to upgrade that's more than enough time. There are still older drivers available. The hardware will continue to work.

    Ever since Red Dead Redemption 2 came out it's been my go to game to test new drivers with. These work just fine. Man that game has really come a long way since release, I've gained 10 more fps on average to this point since Nov 5th. So cheers to Nvidia and Rockstar.
