Re: GTX 260/280 Clock Throttling While in 3D Apps. An Explanation.
I love RivaTuner, awesome utility. Anyways I just leave my card in performance, fan at 60%.
I just don't like window performance with 2d clocks. Actually Aero is a 3d environment with 2d windows. Anyways at 2d speeds I just feel like my whole system is sluggish with lags. So in my opinion Nvidia is dropping the speed too much when using 2d clocks at 1200x1200 resolution. For someone using higher resolution this is probably more apparent. So 2d clocks should also take into account not only if in 2d environment but also resolution setting of monitor. Having some profile options for this is also needed.
