    To overclock the 5700U, I downloaded the hidden features patch found here. This enables overclocking to be done with NVIDIA's own FORCEWARE drivers. The default core clock speed of the 5700U is 475MHz and the effective memory clock is at 1GHz. I noticed a 'Auto Detect' button on the control panel of the overclocking software and decided to find out what it does. Turns out, it overclocked the 5700U for me. However, since they are settings that NVIDIA feels are ok, they happen to be a bit on the safe side. We all know safe != (does not equal, for the non-programmers) fun nor does it mean its maxing out its potential for performance. So I took matters into my own hands and got the 5700U clock speeds up to 540MHz/1.11GHz. The benchmark results of the overclocked 5700U are below.
