My W520 PCMark 7 score jumped from to 4564 to 5368.

I just installed the latest NVIDIA/Intel graphics drivers from the Lenovo web site and did another PCMark 7 benchmark

 

My PCMark 7 score jumped from to 4674 to 5368.

 

But PCMark also asked me to upgrade to SystemInfo Version: 4.15, so I am not sure if it was the new Graphics drivers  or the PCMark Sysinfo that caused the increase in PCMARK 7  scores.

Re: My W520 PCMark 7 score jumped from to 4564 to 5368.

The long version name 9.18.13.1100 translates into the short Nvidia driver name 311.00. And with the jump from the 294 series drivers to the 300 series drivers came an almost universal performance boost. Currently, I'm using the 310.70 drivers, downloaded directly from Nvidia.
Thinkpad W530, i7-3720QM, 1920x1080 screen, 32GB RAM, dual SSDs (Samsung 830, Crucial M4 mSATA), Quadro K2000M, 9-cell battery, DVD burner, backlit keyboard, Bluetooth, Intel 6300 wireless card

And we're back...
