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

No, its quite a bit more than that. The GT200 architecture can change its clocks on the fly all the way down the memory bits. When its not doing anything thats loading the GPU. The GPU will downthrottle clocks on specific parts of the hardware. Whether that be shader, ROPS, ect. In games like WoW where shader processing is minimal the GT200 would almost completely shut down that section of the chip.

It'll come back. I'm just not sure when. Personally I didnt see a need to remove it. And I've told Nvidia that. My room has raised 8 degrees playing WoW for 3 hours verses the drivers that have it.
