Re: GTX280 stuck at 3d speeds even at desktop.
Weird. I had this problem five minutes ago. Card was stuck @ 3D speeds... I saw the temps being 55C idle. Normally my cards run @ 45C idle.
Rebooted, problem gone.
179.92 drivers, Vista 64 bit, further specs see sig, cards @ 650/1399/1150 (since I have them).
Weird... Never saw it before... Maybe coincidence or some program that triggered this. Edit: I think it was a web based thing which triggered this.
