    Hi guys!
    I just received my netbook and i want to improove its graphics performance.
    It has a Atom N450 with 2 virtual cores (HT) and a integrated GMA 3150.
    My current 3D mark 2003 score is 700.
    (thats much better than other netbooks: EeePC900 = 481)
    Im using win7 starter and I turned off all eye candy.
    Since GMA booster does not support the 3000 series, im trying to tweek it with something else.
    I was thinking about upgrading the RAM from 1 to 2GB.
    Theoreticly a faster Ram clock should improve the performance too, since the GPU memory is shared.
    Right now im using Kingston 1GB pc800 DDR2 400mhz.

    Is that gonna improove video perfomance? (at least a little bit?)

    Is there anny other way to improove performance?

    Thakfull for anny comments and suggestions!!! :toast:

    IRRC the atoms downclock ram to 533mhz anyway, so faster memory isn't going to do you any good.

    The ram upgrade to 2gb will be about the only thing you can do short of opening it up and taking a soldering iron to it...




    look into a program called "setFSB" ;) IDK if your laptop is supported, but it is worth a try
