Default Re: GTX 260/280 Clock Throttling While in 3D Apps. An Explanation.

GPU longetivity, Fan noise, Heat outputted into room. I can think of alot of reasons why I'd want my GPU powered down if its not doing anything important. The more cards you have. ((SLI, triple SLI ect the more this feature becomes more useful)) As far as removing it goes. Unlikely. But further tweaks to improve it will likely occur. The entire idea is for it to be transparent. If it's not affecting your gameplay it should be beneficial. If it is. Tell me how and what games so I can report it back to Nvidia.
