Default Re: Should there be an option to disable Powermizer?

3 governors:
performance (essentially off, in your case kernelOfTruth)
powersave (lowest clock/memory/voltage, regardless of usage)
ondemand (raise clock/memory/voltage to factory defaults on usage and reduce to lowest under no demand)

nvidia's driver seems to stay at high performance when AC is plugged in or when battery on battery in all cases on my system though - i wonder what's tripping it up.

EDIT: TwinView is breaking powermizer, forcing my gpu to run at full speed all the time.
