Idling During Windows why not doing something has been a feature since the introduction of the 260/280. However. This feature is different in the fact that it will idle in 3D mode/DirectX apps if the GPU is not under any real load. verses always throttling up.
To those who dont like the feature. The option is there to turn it off. Personally this feature is a godsend to me.
