View Full Version : Overclock on a Mac?

06-06-2012, 09:52 PM
I'm using a 17" Macbook pro with AMD Radeon HD 6770M.

I can use SwitchResX (http://www.madrau.com/indexSRX4.html) to change the refresh rate.
CRU doesn't work in Bootcamp.

Will the Extreme Catleap be overclockable on the Mac?

If SwitchResX works, and you have a Dual-Link DVI input or an active DP to dldvi adapter, I don't see why not.

Thunderbolt uses a DisplayPort channel (PC PCB). So, by theory, what's the maximum refresh rate?

You will need to use a mini-DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Active adapter to use this monitor with thunderbolt. With said adapters (Vega found the best one so ask him) you can reach up to 107Hz maximum, depending on the adapter. But there is no reason you shouldn't be able to overclock the monitor, assuming SwitchResX allows you to output modes that your monitor doesn't support (or you can modify mac drivers, but not sure how that works)

I've never been able to get SwitchResX to work
