    GPU acceleration everywhere in windows


    I'm new here..

    I have question about GPU acceleration in Windows 8 RP.

    I have a notebook Asus N53SV which have Optimus technology. If I click on new tab, or start explorer or everything else in windows the light on my notebook is always switching. It's fine, but if I'm running on battery, battery life is horrible. 30% worse like without this gpu accelaration. In AIDA64 it shows discharging about 12000 mAh and In CP or Win 7 it shows ~8900 mAh. It's almost HOUR.

    I haven't found solution about this problem on the whole internet.

    Is there any solution? I had a Consumer Preview and there wasn't this acceleration, it was OK, but it's older version of windows..

    I have latest driver from nvidia and a tryied reinstall it, remove it, everything.


    sorry for my english it's not PERFECT

    Have you installed the latest nvidia graphics driver - from what I can gather the Optimus technology is updated with the latest nvidia drivers - Im running the Windows7 driver myself -301.42 because it works better on my laptop, than the preview drivers which are - recommended one -302.80 and the beta driver 304.79, which both work, but lag performance slightly opening programs from the taskbar and start menu etc - seems to be small memory conflict or something which isn't evident with the Windows7 drivers.

    If this is irrelevant post back a picture of device manager opened if there are any yellow asterisks showing - this means there are missing drivers.

    and this thread here

    Another thing that happened over the last few years was the integration of the dynamic tick code, which disables the clock tick when the system is idle. Clock ticks are not turned back on for interrupt handlers. So any handler which expects jiffies to change while it is running will, sooner or later, go into a rather undignified infinite loop
